I am generally too control-freakish to post un-styled, unstudied photos on the blog but I had to show you a sneak peak of our new living room sofa, right after it arrived this afternoon (the light was great, but I was running out the door, so no time to zhuzh!):
It is by Hickory Chair (Lorens sofa), and we purchased it at a beautiful shop here in town, called Maria Tomas. I just adore it!
In the coming weeks, we will be getting a new chair in a similar colour, and then I'll do pillows. I'll share more photos soon. It has such great lines, more contemporary, and really freshens and updates the room's traditional-antique vibe, but it still has a lovely hand-made quality to it, with its lovely stitching, high quality craftsmanship and natural fabric (cotton-linen)...
