We’ve blogged a couple of times in the past fortnight about our flood. One of the water damaged casualties was our leather sofa. The current seating arrangements in our sitting room are a bit sparse, consisting of the circular wicker chair pictured and a vintage Ercol rocking chair we bought at auction recently.
The building work hasn’t even started yet, so we’re weeks away from being able to buy new things for the house – but we’re already dreaming of lying on a comfy sofa in front of the fire or TV.
By way of a replacement, we’ve got two options in mind. We might go for a Danish mid century modern style sofa similar in look to the one we’ve lost – long & low with simple lines.
We also love antique leather Chesterfields, particularly beautifully aged ones with that rich chestnut colour. These are hard to find and can be very expensive. We’ve just been checking out some of the new models on offer. The one above would be welcome – we’ll just have to age it ourselves!!
