As you well know (because I’m apparently torturing everyone by dragging out this reveal), the decor in the living room needed a bit of an overhaul thanks to a fancy coat of white paint and a stunning new rug.
I mean, come on…
I’m happy to report that our Craigslist find has shed it’s sad, brown covering and been returned to us in a perfect shade of blue. Boom:
Holy cow! We are absolutely in LOVE. To prove it, here are way too many pictures.
The workmanship is flawless. Gomez Upholstery did an amazing job! We asked Jose to shape the middle cushion to match the curve of the couch (turned out fabulously) and to eliminate much of the piping to clean up the lines. Halfway through the project he called to recommend that we take out all of the piping due to the thickness of the fabric. His suggestion was spot on, and we appreciated that he shared our vision for the sofa.
I know I originally wanted a green couch, but I think this one was meant to be blue.
I never knew I could love a piece of furniture so much. It’s the most comfortable thing we’ve ever sat on and the 3′ depth is amazing. I’m not saying that we accidentally fell asleep on the couch the other night, but I’m not saying we didn’t.
For now we’re using some old pillows, but we’re going back to Gomez Upholstery to have a few pillows made in the same fabric. Actually, we’ll be going back to Jose whenever we need anything reupholstered.
The space is coming together. We opted to move the arc lamp out because it’s been bothering us ever since the new lighting was installed. Hopefully we can find a new home for it down the line. Now the walls are screaming, “give me art!” and someone (me) really needs to work on styling the end tables a bit.
For now, I’m just happy that the sofa is back AND that it made it up the stairwell. It was questionable at points thanks to the small opening on the first floor. We both ended up bleeding during the process (just surface scratches), but it was all worth it for that sofa.
