The excitement really only needs a one word title. After 3+ years of lamenting our too-large-for-the-living-room lumpy (but oh so comfy) couch….
We finally have a sexy adult sofa that will hold up for more than a couple years. The word ‘sofa’ just sounds so much more sophisticated than ‘couch,’ don’t you think?
We splurged for the Diane’s sofa from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams in the stock velvet (aka unable to be ruined by little kitty paws), and I.am.in.love.
I’m also so amazingly happy with how far the living room has come this year! From the highly artistic and totally accurately perspectived sketch that I showed you back in January, I think I can say- mission accomplished.
All the puzzle pieces have finally come together and I’m giddy! Just a few last finishing touches needed *coughpillowsandrugcough* and I will soon be able to put the Done(ish) stamp on this room. When is a room in my house ever fully done? Well, done enough to take some new pics for my Home Tour.
Hubby’s still rather neutral on pretty new Diane- I think because the color is almost identical to our old one, but OMG, I personally think having the right scaled sofa for the space is a breath of fresh air!!
Since my sketched out plans in January, the living room has gotten:
- A gold touch via coffee tables
- An amazing update to a treasured antique chair
- A custom built-in bookcase (here, here and here)
- & new (to me) mis-matched end tables that fit so perfectly in the room
So, are you as in love with Diane as I am??
