The sofa (aka the Beast)

Our new sofa's quite the beast at 101 inches in length (I'll refrain from "That's what she said jokes" this time, promise); it just doesn't feel that long thanks to it's clean lines and low profile. We need a sofa this size for both of us to spread out and for entertaining purposes. We.love.it! My photos certainly do not do it justice.

First the pics, then the review.
How do you feel about "dormant" orchids with no blooms because I've totally got one.
Also, the raspberry pillow is a placeholder until I find the perfect pillow.

W/out the pop of color.

The Pottery Barn
Palace pillows are actually outdoor pillows, but they're quite soft enough to use indoors. Available online only (free shipping) and in real life the background is actually a cream color rather than stark white.

I found this lamp at Home Goods a couple months ago & love the antique brass finish (reminds me of
this pricier one). It will probably end up in another room down the road but for now it's also a placeholder until I find a more suitable lamp.

You can't really tell, but the Hiro Monster's stoked.

Sofa: Room & Board, André (fabric is Dawn Cement) ~We tried out practically every sofa in the Denver area but kept coming back to this one. Because we chose a "custom" fabric/color/size, we had to wait 8 wks to receive it. Painful but worth every penny. Our in-store consultant Heather was exceptional with her knowledge and very honest. She even followed up with us personally after the delivery. If you're in the Denver Cherry Creek area, I highly recommend her. Customer service and the delivery dudes were helpful and prompt for the most part (though they did have to push back our delivery date by a week).

I swear this sofa's extremely comfy even though it might not look it. I even slept on it one night and my decrepit back approved wholeheartedly the next morning. (Let's pretend you don't need to know why I slept on it.) We've clocked over a month's worth of sitting/lounging/napping on this thing, plus entertaining a group of 24 friends, and we adore this sofa. The style also jives well with
our mid century mod credenza. If you'd like to see the so-called evolution of this space, please click here and here.

Meanwhile, I'm in the process of trying to pretty up the deck around here.
Whether I succeed or fail, more on that next week...........
Thanks for dropping by!!
