The New Couch in My Life

On Saturday, September 17th in the year 2011, this couch came into my life...  It honestly feels close to as epic as that sounds.  When you've been sitting on the floor for a week, a couch feels like the best piece of furniture that you could possibly own.  When the couch happens to look this fabulous you start to reflect on how wonderful life is.

So here are the details!
This was a craigslist find for $300.  Since the last couch I bought was only $80 from craigslist and came with a matching chair, this price was initially a little hard to swallow, but it's a really fair price.  It's an antique and in immaculate condition - blue velvet, yum :)

Here's what it looked like on c-list when I saw it...

And now it is all mine and Tim's (the cat's love it too!)... part of our new living room which you can look at in its entirety (with more pictures of this hunky couch) here!


  1. Saw you via Apt Therapy. GORGEOUS! And how great does it look with your stuff?!?

    I am a fellow antique couch owner--mine was a hand-me-down, but I love it. And it is SO COMFORTABLE. They don't make 'em like they used to!

    You can see mine here.

    Happy New Year!

  2. @ Molly, SO RIGHT. It's super comfy and sturdy. I was worried we would have to treat it gingerly because of its age, but it's just make so super well :)
