La piece de resistance

To the dismay of my husband, the moment I have waited a year for, has finally arrived.  The day I get to find a place in our new home for this…

Introducing: the coolest couch in the history of couches, obtained for free and (besides a tear in one cushion & one broken spring) in incredible condition.

Take it in, folks… take it in.


You have to admit - she's an amazing piece of furniture.  The detail in the fabric and in the wood is beautiful and the survival of the piece is a testament to the quality of its workmanship.  Granted, it's not in everyone's taste, but picture it in a pattern or colour you love, and I dare you to resist.

Oh, and did I mention it was made right here in Ontario, Canada?!  Seriously - you can't go wrong.

- a.

Ps.  I lied... I don't actually have a place for it yet.  Due to the chaotic state of the living room, my beautiful sofa moves around from wall to wall, corner to corner, as everything get shuffled every three days or so.  At least it's in the right room (and not the garage)... baby steps.

Update! Check out these photos on the blog La Maison Boheme!  How perfect would my sofa be in there?


  1. It is a pretty crazy couch. Eventually you can reupholster it (take a class!) in something that is more to both of your tastes possibly. Like a grey flannel or something. I could see it in a dove grey flannel, and have the wood painted in glossy white. That would make it super sharp and much more contemporary.

    In the meantime... you should definitely consider investing in a super modern lucite coffee table to contrast (and not compete) with it! Maybe that will offset the hubby's dislike.

  2. Oh wow... you're right. Your couch would look lovely in any of the rooms I posted. I love it! I covet it! What a find!

  3. That sofa is the best. Great fabric and good bones.
    "Lucky," said in my best Napoleon Dynamite voice.
