I was finally able to relocate the black cowhide sofa set from our living room down to the basement. There is a bit of the whole enchilada down there now with a collection of furniture we've accumulated over the years but no longer wish to use them as show pieces.
I am sure most of you know that I am a die-hard fan of Sarah Richardson, and I drool over her entire furniture collection with clean lines, slender legs and neutral fabrics, everything has Sarah's signature all over. The one chair which I am particularly in love with is Elsie Chair. I don't know how much it would cost (not cheap I guess) or where I could conveniently get it, but one thing I know for sure is that her furniture is custom made which means it takes time. With holidays only weeks away and the need to back-fill the space I just freed up, I settled for these lookalikes from a local furniture store. I am extremely happy with the fabric options, quality construction and turnaround time -- one week from the time we placed the order to our living room, one week! The price is decent but I can't say it's cheap. It's still worth the splurge especially now I have them to entertain my guests throughout the holidays.
This is what our living room looks like now. The white mirrored cabinet with clover-patterned cutout is a score from HomeSense.
We are finishing up a wall-to-wall built-in shelves in our basement this weekend. I'd do whatever it takes to stay away from those malls. Hope you all have a great weekend. The sunshine outside picks me up.
