Playing Musical Sofas

I have been looking for months for a new sofa for my familyroom but just havn't been able to find anything that I liked. The one in there now is plaid and I so don't like it. Then the unexpected happened.

This is the sofa I've had in my living room for about 7 yrs. I really like it, however change is always good, right? So this one is going to the familyroom, and - - - -- -


Well, this is going to replace it. I had a chance to buy this lovely sofa from my friend who is moving for a steal. It's a Miles Talbott cream cut chenille that she ordered from a designer 2 yrs. ago and just like new. It was always in her living room and I don't think they ever sat on it. The cream color is perfect with my alphabet chair. I like the lighter cream color, really lightens up the room. So now the old living room sofa can go to the family room. Just playing furniture musical sofas.


This is what this end of the living room has looked like with the two chairs, but now I have one too many sofas for a while, so what to do.


Well, here it is now for the next couple of months. Sofa's anyone? lol I will be giving the old plaid one in the familyroom to my son, so in the mean time I just had to make room. You know we girls just have to do what we have to do. lol


When everything is all rearranged to the right rooms, I will show pics.

Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to your visits.

  11. Marty, that sofa is wonderful! Love the style, the color, and the fabric. It's perfect for your room, and I think the other one looks good in there, too, even if it's only a temporary layover. Glad you got this great deal!

    I gotta tell you that I think the two look really great in the room.

  18. Love that new sofa. Not in the market for one now. You can sell it on Craig's list really fast probably.

  19. I play musical chairs with my things all the time. Not so much with furniture, as I don't have the room to pick from. But I think the two sofas are lovely if you decide to keep both!

  20. Marty, I love the colors in your home. It's great that you were able to get a good deal on a wonderful sofa. When you want to change either one up & go a little more casual, you can always put a slipcover on one! I am still looking for a slipcover that will fit my big comfy couch ... I might have to make one.
    Thanks for the very nice comment on my daughter's bedroom. I really had fun with that room.

  22. It's kinda like getting two new sofas! Even though you've had the one in the living room it will seem so new in the den now. Your room still looks great even with two sofas in it, and they do coordinate well together! Exciting!

  31. Marty, any way you arrange furniture you make it all work! Beautiful sofas, and PILLOWS!

    I just saw your front porch make-over at DYI- wonderful post. Your porch is lovely and summer ready. My favorite freshen up was your garden stool! You did a fabulous job making it look like the patina had developed over years.
    Wow!

  33. Always fun to get something new and move things about. At first I didn't realize what you meant when you said "alphabet chair". Then I clicked to enlarge the photo and see that wonderful textile with the alphabet. Beautiful room, Marty! ~ Sarah
