A new addition

Mr Husband has been away the last couple of weeks travelling in South America. All was well at home until I came across a 20th Century furniture auction here in Sydney. Oh dear...

I am now the proud new owner of a beautiful 1950s three seater leather sofa, a Borge Morgensen sofa. On the slightly more problematic front it means that I need to rearrage our whole living space. Because we rent there isn't really many options available. We have a dining area off the kitchen, and then an odd shaped living area that is dicatated by a sliding door on one wall and the tv plug on another. After pulling things apart for the whole day I am in a vague position to get the new sofa delivered this week. In the mean time I have a lot to clean up, and several images to drool over (and lots of inspiration when I get to the fine tuning part of the reorganising!)

Lots of the images that I have included are more to do with the colour of the new couch - which is not well shown in the top photo. It is actually more of a milky coffee colour, not a tan, not a brown and unfortunately not a black. The black couch in the third image is the exact same model as the new purchase. I'm wishing that I had the room for a big shag pile rug, or maybe something more subtle like the antelope rugs I've been noticing lately. I think I had better let the bank account settle down first!

I'll share the rearranging photos soon!
