Crazy times here kids. Too much to do, not enough time. As I have mentioned before, I work for a well known decorator who keeps me mucho busy -- lately I have been involved in helping with the designs for her upcoming furniture line, new wallpapers and fab new fabrics -- all very exciting.
Working on all this new furniture has got me thinking a lot about my own unfinished spaces -- my living room in particular which I have put off redoing because I keep thinking we are going to move. I am going to have to bite the bullet and tackle my own space.
First up on the list of wants is a small sofa or a settee. The problem is, it is so difficult to find small scale sofas -- everything is always way too big -- either too high, too deep or too wide for my tastes. I say settee, because that is the scale I am after, yet when I think of a settee, I always think of uncomfortable wood framed number, which is what I have and want to get rid of...I want a small sofa, low back, say 30"-32", low simple arms and something that is no deeper than 33" or wider than 60".
Some catalogue companies have dubbed this kind of settee a "sofette" which I think is an apt description, even if the name is a little cheesy.
Here is what I am liking these days, none of which entirely fit the bill:
|Another Hickory Chair option is the Marler Apartment Sofa, at 34.5"high x 68"wide x 37.5"deep it gets closer size-wise.|
|Hickory has more great Made to Measure options including this Leigh Made to Measure. I could go armless, but it hast to be fab. It is 35" high, 36.5" deep and can be made any length.|
|Although I am not a huge fan of tufting, this little number from Wesley Hall looks inviting. The measurements are not bad at 68.5 wide, and 34" high, but 38" deep is a bit deep.|
|Here is that Odette sofette that is made by a few folks, including Williams Sonoma and Bob Gold & Mitchell Williams. Not so crazy about the legs. While the width and depth are good, the back is too high. 54"wide 36"deep 36"high.|
|This sofa is from Vanguard. Nicely proportioned
|Ooh, now this is as close to a winner as I have seen the A. Rudin 2600, 60" wide, 30" deep and (drumroll please) 32" high! Very nice looking option.|
What do you think, any ideas?
