I got it I got it I got it

I have another couch.

The color is much different in person than the craigslist picture led me to believe. It’s a bit of a deeper blue/gray. It is in PERFECT condition. I never really have anything in PERFECT condition. It’s nice, but scary.

I have to totally redo the den now.

I’m debating on whether I should I sell my white couch. I may have to live with this colorful sofa for a week and then decide…

I want it I want it I want it

Ugh. Someone else is going to look at it before me, which always spells trouble. I’m going to check it out if they fall through. Here’s to hoping they are super flaky!

The truly amazing folks at Circa50 heard my cry of desperation for beautiful well-fitting leather Hardoy Butterfly Chair (or BKF) covers. The first covers I purchased on ebay were a total and complete disaster. I returned them immediately after unpacking and was disappointed by how ill-fitting they were on my vintage butterfly frames as well as how chintzy the canvas material ended up being.

THANK GOD for Circa50. Their slings are extremely well made and they offer a huge range of colors, material and sizes. That’s probably why I constantly see people using Circa50 as a resource around blogs, in magazines, at friends houses and on flicker all the time. AND they supply chairs to The Parker (Palm Springs), Thunderbird Hotel (Marfa, TX), as well as other awesome hotels. Their website also has a nice history and production rundown on the BKF chair which I found super informative.

But come on! The Parker and Thunderbird? Those are two of my favorite design savvy hotels. I drooled all over that outdoor circle of butterfly chairs around the fire pit at the Parker and wanted to someday recreate that look in my backyard. Now I know the secret…

These little craigslist butterfly chair frames I picked up are upgraded to KILLER now. They bring the hotness. They bring it hard.

Those are some sassy and inviting chairs. You cannot resist their charms.

This is my BIG question for you, my sexy and stylish readers. Which cover style should remain here forever and ever at The Brick House?

Please leave a comment and vote for your favorite in the battle of :

Cowhide vs. Medium Brown Leather

On Thursday I will announce the victorious cover in this style battle to the death. I know who I’m gunning for! But they are all winners in my eyes…

Thank you Circa50!!!
