The trouble now was that he didn’t know which pieces to take with him. We looked at all the furniture he had and I helped him decide based on colors, size and comfort/sentimentality level.
For the living area, he had multiple couches and chairs to pick from but there was only one couch that would go with any color. It was a light brown couch that was also one of the most comfortable for him. The other couches were less comfortable or were starting to wear out. We then picked out some arm chairs that would go with the brown couch.
He had multiple side tables to pick from as well. There were ones that matched in a dark wood color and others that didn’t match but still complemented each other. The dark matching set looked bigger so it was put off to the side. The other side table was a glass table and a small round table. We decided to pick those because they visually took up less space and were actually smaller than the matching wood pieces.
