We sat down with mom and interior design blogger, Farah Prochaska, to learn more about why she chose the Serena Sectional to upgrade her living room.
Farah Prochaska and her husband bought their 1954 Mid-Century Rambler home in 2015 and knew they needed to give it some major TLC for it to work for them. She started posting progress photos of the home renovation on Instagram and her updates starting to gain a lot of attention from people who couldn’t get enough of her creative personality. Once her home changes were done, however, her life changed in an even more exciting way as she gave birth to a gorgeous baby girl.
Welcoming a baby into a family is always an exciting time in anyone’s life. It sparks an amazing, and sometimes chaotic, beginning to a lifelong, love-filled adventure. But, once your bundle of joy starts to grow and learn, it may be necessary to upgrade the furniture you have in your home so it can withstand the rough and tumble life that comes with early childhood.
That’s where Farah Prochaska found herself when her daughter became a toddler. Toddlers are notorious for creating the best kind of mess and Farah worried that their old sofa wouldn’t be able to stand up to constant wear and tear.
“Our previous sectional was old, tired, and a little dirty. Something about having a baby on the move made me want to get everything cleaner.” – Farah Prochaska
Farah is a stay at home mom and her day-to-day is filled with reading, dancing, and fun activities that center around her living room. Because of this, it was important for Farah to have furniture that could live up to the excitement. She searched high and low for a couch and she finally found one through Joybird.
She chose the Serena Sectional in the Sunbrella Premier Fog Safeguard fabric. This fabric can stand up to anything life throws at it for years because it’s treated surface repels most liquids. It’s also guaranteed to remain soft, stain-resistant, durable, and most importantly, easy to clean for years, which is any parent’s dream.
“I was looking for something that would feel at home in our existing living room. I love [Joybird’s] website and the shapes of all the furniture pieces! It was honestly so hard choosing just one sectional. Everything is gorgeous! They offer tons of fabric choices from linen to velvet to woven tweeds and will send you a sample of every single one to see in real life!” – Farah Prochaska
Now that her new sofa is in her home, Farah can’t get enough of it and neither can her daughter. She loves her new sectional so much, in fact, that she is always compelled to show her guests exactly how amazing it is.
“If you come to our house there’s a very good chance I will force you to watch me spill wine on a couch cushion to show you how it rinses off with water! It’s SO satisfying!” – Farah Prochaska
