Sofa



sofa, originally uploaded by joomoolynn.

We bought this sofa off of craigslist a few weeks ago. Our old sofa was literally in shreds. I love tufted sofas and had been looking for a long time for a leather one that was decent quality.

This one needs a few repairs, mostly the button that has popped out on the seat.

It is a lovely navy color and has brass nails all the way around.

I finally finished the pillows for it last night. The orange fabric is one from Ikea that I bought years ago. The chevron pillows are pieced from a striped vintage sheet. The patchwork pillow is mostly fabrics by Anna Maria Horner. I made the covers all envelope style and quilted and bound them all. The inserts are goose down. Did you know that Tuesday Morning sells down pillow inserts for dirt cheap? I was so excited! We don’t have an Ikea near us and the cheap ones from Joann Fabrics just weren’t doing it for me.

I love my cozy sofa 🙂 Happy Thursday!

    I caught a glimpse of the sofa in an earlier picture and I kept wondering about it. Love it. The pillows look awesome too!

    What a great find that couch is! The pillows really finish it off.
