When I was at my parents’ home one weekend this spring I found a treasure. My wonderful neighbor Carol is a real estate agent and she had just sold the home of a little old lady that had lived in her house for nearly 40 years. This lady was moving to an assisted living home, and told Carol that she could keep or sell the furniture (from the 1950s and 1960s) because she was unable to take it with her. Carol was selling a dated looking mid century modern sofa at a yard sale, as well as a little chair in need of some TLC. I immediately saw diamonds in the rough, and Carol gave them to me for FREE!!! I have had a bit of an ikat obsession for the past year, and I knew that this was my opportunity to finally create my own personal statement piece for my living room. After searching Pinterest and the internet for inspiration, I finally settled on the perfect Lewis and Sheron fabric for the sofa. I used a local upholsterer, and within a few weeks I had the sofa I had always dreamed of. I am absolutely in love with the result, and think that this is the prettiest sofa I ever did see. I also got the chair recovered in a deep pink called Hibiscus by Hamilton Fabrics. What do you think?
