I want a grown-up fancy sofa. I want a tufted sofa with nice legs. What kind of sofa do I have now? A tufted sofa with nice legs, of course (you can see it here). I need a new sofa as much as I need to buy another chair that can’t be sat in because it needs new cushions or needs to be totally re-glued. I want. I don’t need.
But I can look, right?
1) CB2‘s Avec Tweed Sofa caught my eye in the most recent catalog. I love the tweedy grey upholstery but the more I look at this sofa, it feels unbalanced and top heavy. It looks like it’s going to wake up and talk to me like Pee-Wee’s talking chair.
3) West Elm‘s take on the classic Chesterfield, the Chester, looks completely amazing in deep turquoise Lagoon. It’s my favorite and it’s totally gorgeous. But would it be comfortable? I need to meet this sofa in person. Dear West Elm, please come to Pittsburgh. Pottery Barn is already here. And tell Crate and Barrel to invite CB2.
4) And then there’s the Atwood Sofa from Gus Modern. So dreamy, so handsome. Look. At. That. Base. Walnut perfection. This is my second favorite, all dressed up in Urban Tweed with all those stately tufts. I wanna be friends with it.
What’s your dream sofa?
