This morning I am blogging from our new Crate & Barrel Lounge sofa :) I love it!! It's so deep, it's like a bed (which is exactly what I wanted!) My husband is still on the fence about it, but he's usually reluctant about change, so we'll see!
"AFTER" (not really an after, but here are some bad iPhone pictures of the new sofa!):
As you can see, I've added the vintage chrome chairs to the space. They are currently orange vinyl and in bad shape, and I will be recovering them in a gray linen blend fabric (you can see the swatch hanging on the chair).
I like this floor plan so much better than the sofa + chaise combo lined up on the wall. I'm sooooooooo happy that's finally gone! YAY!
And the chrome chairs have actually been pretty useful.. my parents are in town visiting, and this layout was working well for visiting and chatting. A lot less awkward than someone sitting on the end of the chaise.
I also LOVE my new berry velvet pillows from Woody Liana. I had them made in a 24"x24" size so they'd be to scale with the new LARGE sofa. And my previous Nympheus pillow (also from her) fits in perfectly.
I know, I'm cringing a bit with Charlotte on the new sofa, but what can I say, we let our animals on our furniture... they are our babies.
On a side note, I've also ordered some 26" round tables to flank the sofa, which will be in scale with the large sofa. Those won't be coming until Aug.
All these pictures are terrible quality, sorry! I'll definitely take some better ones once these orange chairs get recovered!
