On sofas

Filed under: Uncategorized — sweetanticipation @ 10:16 am

Decor8 mentioned Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams‘s furniture. I found a dealer in New Orleans on Magazine St. (Villa Vice).

So I can check out these two sofas:

Baxter and the Dexter

I will also call round DWR on the same street and check out Bantam sofa:

Also I like Velero Sofa  and Matenee by V. Kagan (russian). It can be bought through HM in New Orleans. They sell American Leather.

There is also cool Dakar sleeper for John’s and family rooms :

I think I got the drift…..of designing thoughtfully. I love color. But i would use color! on the walls painting them brightly instead of buying expensive furniture in brights and prints. I know I will get tired of certain colors soon and will want to change the mood. But if I spent $2000 on a sofa I will feel bad about changing it. Painting a wall is easy and chip. So, as Decor8 advices:

“As for fabric, a grey or beige tweed would be perfect, that way I can freely mix and match pillows and throws to change the mood. You really can’t go wrong.

I love this side table from Brocade Home for Anna’s or our bedroom

Or from West Elm something like Concave Drum Tables (129)

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Holly Becker at decor8 for many great ideas I borrowed from her blog.
