I think I’m finally over hatin’ on my living room. For now anyway.

As much as I wish I could say that Erin’s fab post on sectionals at Design Crisis made me go out and take care of business, this little surprise was already in the works.  Remember my longing and dreaming for a groovy serpentine sectional here and here?  Well, I can’t afford those.

I managed to find a 10 seater on E-bay for $480!  I took the money I made from selling the old buffet and actually managed to find something in the budget..I was as surprised as you are…probably more. It may not be De Sede, but it’ll do pig.  It would be nice to reupholster, but that would be about $2k I’m sure, plus, the reason I bought it was because I don’t HAVE to right now. Project 2015 maybe.

The room feels much bigger now, despite this behemoth taking up the whole space.  The Things LOVE it.

I switched out coffee tables to put our lucite and zebrawood table in here and traded the Wassilys for the Barcelonas in the bedroom.  So far (10 hours) I’m digging it.  As for the other sofas?  Thing One has the orange one, and Thing Two got the green one, so both have very grown-up sitting areas in their bedrooms now.

I think I’ll switch up some of the art and wall decor…maybe move SO somewhere else…You know how Decor-ADHD and non-committal I am, so tomorrow, it will be different I’m sure.

    I think you are totally rockin’ this sofa. You’ve really pulled it off and I have to tell you the truth, I don’t know that I would have given it a second look out of this context. My parents had a cranberry colored sofa when I was growing up that was very similar to this one, albeit not a sectional. And you just can’t beat the price. Well done you!

    Tanks…there was a moment I started to panic it was too big to work, the CC was completely convinced it was a no-go, so you KNOW that meant I shooed him away until I got it to fit!
