A day earlier I was sitting with my family, and we were having a casual conversation about what should be done & what not, at our new home renovation. We are shifting into our new house within a week or two, and we still have so many things to get done. Amidst our conversation of buying the perfect sofa set, my brother came up with an idea to go for something different this time. At present, we have a five-seater Fabric Sofa Set.
