No couch, no problem?

Couch arriving much later than expected (over a month), having guests up before then, best options?
posted by devonia to home & garden (16 answers total)
I ordered a sleeper sofa from an independent furniture store and was told it would arrive in up to 5 weeks. Week 4 (last week) I called to find out the status and was told the couch was delayed due to a shipping issue and would arrive in another 3-4 weeks.
Problem: I am having around 4 house guests (we are all female mid-twenties) up to my tiny apartment in 2 weeks.
Temporary living room furniture: 2 uncomfortable wooden chairs, a fabric side chair and a blow-up mattress.
1) Renting a couch? Can you recommend a good (affordable and reputable) place in Toronto to rent a couch for a weekend? (I did do a little looking online, but some have websites with prices and some just have call us numbers, looking to see if anyone has used the services before and can recommend one).
2) Any other options?
3) Alternatively, does this really matter? How would you feel about sitting on a blow-up mattress, that you will eventually be sleeping on???
