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