  Sometimes you just can't DIY. Yeah...I don't think I'm crafty enough to conjure up enough magical potions to presto change-o some old wood pallets into a sturdy and stylish sofa. Nope. Not even gonna try.
So if I can't DIY my other tactic is usually to buy vintage...aka used...aka salvaged. Or also... not perfect. Don't get me wrong, I love our jolly green giant and that I scored for only $150. But with two bouncing babies, a dog and a husband that won't take his boots off and falls asleep on it all the time... it is definitely showing some (ok A LOT) of age. The legs are popping off, the center is collapsing and some cushion covers are splitting. Yep. It's time to send the mile long davenport out to AmVets pasture. 

So what does that mean????


    Weeeeeee! And this mama does love a good shopping expedition. New doesn't have to mean without character. My love of vintage will never cease, but I think it's time I have something that I know will last more than a year... and perhaps also has a warranty ;)
   So here are a few of my vintage inspired finds that I searched all over googleland for. Basically I love anything Chesterfield inspired. Think lots of tufting, tight back, single seat cushion, exposed turned wood feet and rolled arms.....

The Gordon Tufted Sofa for Home Decorators $999 to $1149
I love both the chocloate brown leather and Belgian linen. Beautiful!

Another from Home Decorators...
The Custom Greenwich Tufted Sofa $1299
The tufting, rolled arms and tall feet are just vintage inspired gorgeousness

Urban Ourfitter's Ava Velvet Tufted Sleeper $749
A sleeper is always a good idea...

West Elm's Chester Tufted Sofa. $1,099 to $1,399
Tons of fun colors to choose from. Like Poppy and sunshine yellow!

Martha Stewart Collection For Macy's- Saybridge $1,399
Martha approved? Then it must be perfect for moi!

Ballard Designs Eton Sofa $1,499 +
So so so many fabric choices to choose from! Plus those rolled arms are beautiful!

Another from Ballard Designs
The sofia sofa $1,699
On the pricier side but such a beautiful heirloom quality piece.

Then there is a local (bargain) source that I've been keeping an eye on

Jerome's Victoria Sofa $599
Kinda a steal right?

Jerome's Karla Sofa- $999
ok... totally off the decorating topic and definitely doesn't go with my decor, but I'm just loving that blue velvet!

Hummm. Now I think it's time to hit the pavement and ogle these beauties in person....
Thanks for stopping by!
