Hello All! thanks for all of your emails on the search for finding a reasonably priced, ivory leather, tufted sofa. Some of you are pretty darn "search" savvy I must say, and found some great tufted sofas for great prices. Only problem was, if the sofa was the right size then it didn't come in light leather, and if it came in light leather then it wasn't available in the right size. Isn't that always the way? So anyway, in the end we ordered the Ivory leather 102" sofa, that I mentioned in my last post. Only 8 long weeks until they arrive! Here is the sofa we decided to go with.
Can't wait to see it in person! Well I should say, can't wait to see "them" in person, because there are two of these pretty puppies on the way. In the meantime, here is a sneak peek of the room they will be going in. This is the "before" shot.
It's a great big ole room! 22' x 22'. Everything will be changing except for the carpet and the wall color. Here is a computer generated version of how we plan on arranging the room. The homeowner (Swarna) likes a very minimalist feel, so there won't be a lot of fluff going on. By fluff, I mean accessories and such. The color scheme will be gold, gray and ivory. The color in the picture below isn't exact, but you get the idea. We haven't actually decided on tables or lamps yet either. Swarna likes things to be unique and different, so we will be hitting the fleamarkets and everywhere else we can think of, to see what we can come up with.
Have any of you used the software "Home Designer" It's neat for creating a room to scale, and having a pretty good feel for how everything will fit and look when the room is done. Plus it's just fun to play with. You can do a lot with the software, like import your own images for fabric and paint color. The software is limited in your furniture choices though, if you are going for an exact match. There might be a way to import images of furniture, but I haven't figured that out yet if there is. Plan3d is another really good program I use often too.
More to come soon!
