In that case I'll leave the rail. The painting she's thinking of is pretty big, I think it's roughly 4' by 6'. One of my good friends had a mid-modern couch made up by a local guy in Brooklyn for about $3500 and I found it to be awesome. One of the issues with the aforementioned couch is that it takes up so much space which is already at a premium. Since I think that good planning allows for you to walk about without feeling confined it's important to find something that takes up less space. I spent a great deal of time placing everything in a way that allowed multiple people to arrange themselves comfortably without feeling like anything was in the way, a smaller couch would go a long way toward further improving that. The Bantam Gold in 73" would be perfect. A knoll is nice as well, but IMO, extremely overpriced.
