We’re accumulating couches here. I think you’ll understand why when you see the newest arrival.
I mentioned wanting a striped settee before moving into this house, and Samantha spotted this antique striped sofa on Chairish for me. It was larger than I was planning for, but it was so perfect and I was afraid someone else would snap it up, so I bought it. Delivery took a few weeks, but it’s here now and it’s gorgeous.
I’d like a pair of chairs in front of the curved windows, or maybe a round table for playing games, so the sofa won’t be staying where it is permanently. I’m not in a rush though — I’m looking forward to playing around with layouts and experimenting a bit.
Oh hey, I potted my small fiddle leaf fig. The planter had a bird’s nest fern at the old house, but it didn’t survive the move.
And that light! I’ve wanted that twin beacons brass lamp since I had pinned it and posted about it on the blog, two years ago. It was something like $800 at the time, so I skipped it, but then I spotted it on clearance all this time later for $250. I figured that was a fair price, and I was blown away by the quality of it when it arrived. It’s big! And heavy! And perfect! It reminds me of an insect (a praying mantis, maybe?), but I tend to like that in lighting.
This house, she is going to be good.
