I Want This So Bad!


I spied this amazing Asian style couch yesterday...


It made me giddy!


My wheels began spinning as I tried to figure out how to incorporate it into our home.
 

Usually my rationale goes something like this...
 

UPGRADE!

  
I can totally see it in our black & white toile room in front of the mirrored bookcase.


Problem is, what fabric to upholster it in and how much will that cost me?


My mom was not feeling me...



I'm asking you, am I crazy or is it as cool as I think it is?

You're crazy. That sofa is hideous. Nothing Asian about it.

I LOVE IT! Def has an ASIAN VIBE and if you can get it you SHOULD get it! You can find great fabric deals online...you may NEVER in your lifetime stumble upon a sofa like this again. "He who hesitates is lost"....

Dear Anon,
Check out the Asian wood frame/legs at the bottom. It looks Asian to me!
Thank you for your "hideous" opinion though...

Definitely not crazy, just fun, and I love it. I do hope you and your sweet mom took that home?!!

Seeing as my house is named "Pagoda", I think it should live here!
I'm feeling you T, oh yes it's awesome.

I would classify this sofa as a c1970 Knole-type sofa with neo-baroque trim.

Nothing Asian about it.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, yes? Personally, I LOVE it and would drag that sucker all the way home, paint the woodwork soft white and reupholster it in hot pink or lime green in a blk/wh room. Oh the possibilities! Get. It.

The lines are very unique. You would have a sofa that would be special...but with fabric and reupholstery...how much was it?

Hi Terri, Asian or not who cares, I think it's great, even in this lovely Hermes orange.

Have you noticed how the people who want to say something negative always hide behind 'anon'?! This word of advice to Anonymous above - have the courage of your convictions and put a name to your comments, we'd all have a lot more time for you!!

wishing you a wonderful weekend Terri

It's orange, it's fabulous, buy it Terri! Love the cut to it as well but it's orange!

Happy Mother's Day!

Hi Terri

I love it. You will make it work in your space. Velvet fabric is always classic

I love the slim arms. Add new seat cushions with a nice down crown.. Probably 25 yards of fabric with no repeat.
I like it!

I think this sofa has enormous potential! It has great dimensions, long and not too deep, looks very comfortable for your mom. I will not buy a couch unless my feet touch the floor :-)

It's cool! and I know where you are coming from. It is very appealing..
Maybe a tad long, but very cool...

Love the lines Terri! It would scrumptious in your office!!! Where are you guys? It looks like sofa heaven! We need a sofa for the man cave ;)

vignette design said...

Totally! I can see it in your toile room! Perfect place for it. Love the wood trim on the bottom. Paint it black? Upholster it in black and white ticking to go with your black and white toile!? So did you buy it?
Oh, and I so agree with you Sharon. Nasty people always hide behind "anon" or a name without a profile.
Who cares if the sofa is asian or not? It's cool and that is the point!
