More surfaces

This is not a desk you want to push against the wall. It’s both delightful form and useful function! Drawers in the back, shelves in the front.  This rustic wood would be a dream to own but at $2,000….I don’t think the decorating budget can cut that. Not with the sofa. Onwards to cheaper, yet still beautiful, desks.  This past year (March 2013 – present) I have failed myself. Done…

Yes

Okay, it’s settled. Enough of the back and forth. While I like the round, this table fits my original vision: bottom shelf, glass (mirrored actually) top, and antique gold metal whatever table.   Now, onto the apartment search which I am dreading. Just kidding, this one, if still available by the time I buy a table, is better.

Another go round

This round table is from Crate and Barrel. I like that it’s shown with a sofa similar to mine. Helps me visualize. I really do like the idea of a round table but am still not 100% decided. WAH.

One obsession to another…if I don’t get a dang coffee table soon I’ll burst. I did see some pieces that I wouldn’t mind having.

What to do! All images are from wayfair.com. I actually really like the last round coffee table (hey, gold and glass!) which prompted me to search for ottomans. That was another…

IT’S HERE

Finally, the sofa has arrived. It’s the biggest sofa I’ve ever seen and definitely the biggest I’ve ever had in my possession.  All the other furniture looks tiny next to it!  I’m so happy with the color and feel of it though. We’re not so sure we like how high it is off the ground, and maybe one day will see about getting different legs…but for now it is awesome!…

Coffee tables

The new sofa will be here TOMORROW! I’m nervous that I’m going to hate it and have to deal with it for years because of the hefty price tag. I hope it’s comfy. I can’t remember! I’m sure it will be beautiful! I have no idea what to do with the 2 other sofas I have. I wish I had the space/supplies to reupholster them! That is the dream. So,…
