humpback of the house

Lately I’ve been saving images of camel back sofas… I think it was my sister’s (below) that inspired me.

(the pigtail blondie is not my sister, but rather my niece)

What I love about it:

  • it’s classic
  • it’s comfortable
  • clean lines: usually a single seat cushion and tight back

Here’s what has been accumulating in my file labeled “camel back sofas”…

Francine_sf_top

{MG+BW’s Francine… which is not what I was looking for.  I was looking for Sally Wheat’s sofas… which were there one day, gone the next.  Not very “camel back” but inspired (arched back)… so come one… let’s roll with it.}

  1. I love them all but you know which one is my favorite!! I need some pillows for it though… she looks awfully lonesome sitting on it all alone!

  2. I love the Windsor Smith one too, so lovely.

  3. Ooh la la! I love the new header I didn’t notice it until I posted my earlier comment. Love it.

  4. HOLY SMOKAROLY that header is HOT!!! Did you design it E? Oh my gosh, I’m in love love love!!!
    And thanks for the sofa eye candy. If I come into an extra $15k, I’ll certainly pass it along. I’m not greedy.
