So here is what I chose ...the Axis sofa from Crate and Barrel!
Lets see... who guessed correctly...Cara, Teri, Candace, Bonnie, Kim and Mimi
but I really liked the others too.
I'm really questioning Restoration Hardware's pricing right now...any thoughts on that?
The reason this sofa was so appealing was the quality for the price. The base price for in stock colors is $1699 and jumps up about $200 dollars if you choose a custom fabric, but still a really good value. I actually lifted the sofa up on the end, in the store, to see how heavy it was...and its heavy!
That to me says great quality wood and construction.
Another plus is this fabric.
It's a brushed and stone washed cotton... a denim type of weave and the "hand" is really soft.
I think it will really hold up and clean well. The shape of this sofa is very current and straight forward in its design and could also be slipcovered very easily. I really thought about the velvet too but this is our only spot to sit really and it's going to get used.... a lot!
And finally...comfort. It is super deep and very comfortable. The seat cushions seem a little stiff but I think they will break down with time.
Right now I have a used few accent pillows that I had and two new vintage striped guys in red and grey.
Remember... this room is going to be a bit more masculine that what I have done before and we are competing with all of that beige!
I think Millie approves!
Now on to the next item....The "Occasional Chair"...which I suppose is called that because it gets sat in only occasionally? Don't really know for sure...
Here is what I chose:
It's called the "Kenton" chair from Noir Furniture.
It comes in this neutral linen fabric only and the wood is a white washed oak.
I purchased two of these and they are getting their make over...as we speak.
The arms and back will be a white slubbly linen and the seats will be wrapped in vintage french burlap sacks.
Ok, whew, glad that's over...I feel like a real person again, now that I have a sofa!
And finally....if you haven't entered to win your very own little Toaster Lamp...hop on over and leave a comment...the giveaway winner will be announced tomorrow evening!
Thanks for stopping by!
