Just to give you a little break from the Christmas posts, I thought I’d pop over to show you my new sofa set.
For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you must be wondering how many sofas does this lady have?
To be honest, I’m losing count too. Many of you may be familiar with my coral pink sofa which I have had for 2 years, and this month I learned that Living Coral is the colour of the year.
However, I’m now on to my next favourite colour. Yes it is yellow! I’m very much into Gen Z yellow at the moment.
Who knows, maybe this will make it into the next colour of the year, a year or two down the line. I’ve picked a yellow sofa because I feel that we need more happiness and optimism in the new year, after all the gloom and Brexit thing going on in the U.K.
It’s basically a ray of hope and sunshine. I was very fortunate to be able to pick and get my sofas made at Sofa.com.
I visited their large showroom in Islington, and it was amazing the amount of stock they have on the shop floor over 2 levels.
It meant that I could try out the sofas for comfort factor.
There was also a choice of fabric samples to pick from.
I met with one of their in house designers Henriette who helped me select my sofa based on my room’s dimensions and aesthetic. My yellow sofa is the Harper 3 seat sofa in Canary pure matt velvet with a blue piping called Amazon.
I love its elegant scallop back.
I have also decided on 2 small single seaters that would fit in my bay window space.
The aim is to ultimately replace my coral sofa set in my living room downstairs with these new pieces.
I thought it would be fun to get bright colours into the mix, so have picked a blue and pink armchair.
In case you are wondering, the rainbow cushion is from Sophie Home. The blue one seater is called the Betty armchair, and it is the same colour as the Amazon piping of my yellow sofa. I’ve also contrasted it with an Electric Blue piping and buttons. The pink one seater ( you didn’t think I was going to give up on pink did you? ) is also the Betty armchair in Peony pure cotton matt velvet with Claret piping and buttons.
It feels so light and bright. Here’s to an optimistic and happy 2019.
A big thank you to sofa.com for a wonderful personal experience. It was such a seamless process from selection to delivery.
Finally, If you are unsure about what sofas, materials or colours, then head to one of their showrooms.
You will get great advice from their wonderful in house team. I highly recommend it.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this post. My next post will be the Christmas tree 2018 reveal.
