I found this amazing striped sofa that has these Milo Baughman style chrome supports and barely rolled arms. It has vintage tags but the maker is unmarked and I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like it. Mystery sofa.
I love it. I think it’s a spectacular and unique piece that is incredibly graphic and says hi, I’m the star of this room, make way for my stripey awesomeness. Then again, it’s a whole lot of look for someone like me who prefers their vintage sofas uncomfortable and neutral. Problem is, this thing is squishy and delicious to sit and in the most incredible vintage condition that lulls you into cushioned cloud like nap time.
I pulled apart the den to accommodate this 93″ extravagance after about a month or so of going back and forth wondering how to mix things up in here.
Well. This mixed it up. We will see if it sticks.
I know it won’t – but the comfort, oh my is it nice. I’m just not loving the wainscoting and the stripe and the burl together, it’s almost like this sofa needs a clean white wall and an open floor plan that just isn’t available in our den. Plus, I hate that WAINSCOTING, and no, it’s not on top of the wall and easy to remove. It’s this thick weird solid wood stuff that actually creates the wall, studs and all. That’s why it hasn’t been removed, the house would fall down, and that is why – sadly – the sofa won’t work for me.
Soon. Very soon. I need to sell a bunch of things including this baby. Keep an eye out and I’ll keep you posted…
