I finally took pictures of my new sofa and chairs, a few people have asked and I keep forgetting!
The sofa and chairs are by Best Slipcover Company*, (while their website is generic, their products are great) both my sofa and my chairs the Rachel… both are linen… the sofa has the box pleat skirt. Now, the sofa is a purchase I have been thinking about for quite some time… I dreamed of this and this… I think I have a good compromise, and saved a
few lot of pennies too, which is a recessiony-good move. I wanted a slipcover… because then if I tire of the natural linen or the print (which will probably happen first) I can change it up. I like the comfortable look and feel of a slipcover too, and the fact that they are pre-shrunk and can be tossed in the washer and dryer is nice.
The fabric stopped me in my tracks… I did not recognize it… I think that's why I liked it so much. The colors worked well with my house and I liked the large pattern. My rug is herringbone seagrass bound in alligatory-leather.
Did I mention they are unbelievablycomfortable? Do you see where the little terrihuahuas spend their time when we are at home? My dining chairs in the background… can't see them too well… but they are klismos-ish Milling Road chairs, now discontinued, but when I found them at Goodwill, all 6 for $150 when they were still current. They retailed for about $500 per chair. I think that would classify as a 'deal', wouldn't you?
That's all for today folks! Happy Monday!
*- if you see see something you can't live without @ that website… let me know. And one of my old sofas is still for sale if any locals are interested.
