Okay, let me start at the beginning. Remember a few weeks ago when I posted this? Well, I found one of my very own…yup, a navy blue chesterfield…for $30. The leather isn’t of the best quality and isn’t in very good shape. I will take a photo, but right now we have 2 sofas in our living room, home theater style, only there isn’t room for a home theater. I am already dreaming of having the sofa reupholstered in a worsted wool, perhaps with a pinstripe, but for now it is pretty full of thirty dollars worth of awesomeness.
This sofa also won’t replace eventually having my upholsterer make us something custom. Again, this is just a “right now” solution.
As I have said before, I have to treat myself as a design client. I create a design board to clarify what is there currently, what I don’t love and a direction moving forward.
Here is my “as-is” design board
New sofa – for the time being
Newly upholstered danish modern chair – I still owe you an “After” post
Credenza that holds the TV – just love it
Seagrass Rug – if you have dogs or kids, this is a miracle material, hides hair, dirt, mud, etc.
All of the art on the wall
Dining table and tolix chairs
What is on the chopping block –
Ottomans – we use them instead of a coffee table, they at least need to be rupholstered, right now they are in a subtle missoni-esque pattern. I am considering changing the legs to something shorter so that they will fit under a real coffee table
Leather wingback chairs – with the addition of Mr. Chesterfield, our living room feels a bit leather heavy and very nailhead heavy. I have loved having wingbacks, perhaps some cool slipcovers will do the trick.
New pillows are required, most definitely this one –
So that is all I know so far. I will update you with design boards as my ideas progress. I have promised myself I will finish the master bedroom (which is SO close) before I start on something new. Since this is just a small detail makeover, I think I can slip it in without changing my master plan.
