Last weekend, I took a drive down to Costa Mesa to visit a few of my favorite shops - The Container Store, Crate & Barrel, and Macy's Home! I was in organizational and furniture heaven! I picked up a few items from the Container Store but wanted to window shop my way through C&B and look at sofas. The sofa I have now is circa 1973. It's literally older than I am and although it's slip covered and does a mediocre job, moving away from orange and brown plaid is something I've wanted to do for awhile.
So here, my friends, are my top choices...
The Petrie Sofa in graphite. It's tufted and comfy with classic lines but boasts a price tag of $1699.
This gorgeous (and I mean gorgeous!!) white leather sofa laughs in the face of the Petrie! This is the Aidan sofa and is priced at $3499. Yeah...a little (or perhaps a lot) over budget, but it's nice to dream.
Next up is the Azure Sofa with it's soy-based polyfoam, wrapped in regenerated synthetic fiber in downproof ticking seat cushion. Sexy, huh? But it's soy-based which means I could eat it in an emergency. Safety first...oh...wait...what? That's not what it means? Oh. Well, it's still comfortable and tufted with one seat cushion and I love it!
Next up, we have the Vaughn Apartment Sofa, which is beautiful! It has clean lines and a classic look but no tufting. And it's $1399 despite not having a whole lot of character.
Let's wrap up Crate and Barrel and head over to Macy's home store, shall we?
Whoa...that's a mustard color sofa! If I want character, then this might be my guy! Tufting all over, clean lines, soft, comfortable, luxurious. Uh...pretty darn amazing if you ask me. This is the Natalie Sofa and is priced right at a mere $1299 (the most affordable yet!) I could definitely see welcoming her into my home!
But wait, what do we have here? This is the Tory sofa, also from Macy's. It has the single cushion, tufting all over, clean lines and is almost half the price of the Natalie at just $699. However, it's not quite as comfortable or luxurious looking either.
I think I know which direction I'm leaning. Do you? Was I obvious enough? Of course, things can change but I hope to buy something in the next month or two! I can't wait!
