I bought an orange sofa? Seventies sofa, welcome to my 70’s home.
When paired with exposed studs and insulation, it makes for a really beautiful, somewhat industrial look. Ha, couldn’t keep a straight face for that ridiculous claim. However, the sofa does have good bone structure. That’s where the good qualities end. Also similar to our house when we bought it.
Both back legs have huge scuffs and scratches.
While ugly, the orange upholstery is seriously dirty – beyond a deep cleaning.
I’m not exactly sure what fabric and color I want. Just have to see what the fabric gods send me. I do know I’ll sand the frame to make repairs (tighten up the joints) and stain the wood.
Oh that open back. Hopefully it doesn’t turn into a giant headache to recover. For only $20, I couldn’t leave without this piece.
In other sofa news, the mid-century bench is living in our bedroom. In other, other sofa news, we returned the Rachael. Despite her good looks, she wasn’t comfortable, especially for six-foot tall Ben. Turns out what’s comfortable for a few minutes at the store isn’t the same as a few hours at home.
What good is an uncomfortable couch? We moved the Dana in and so far, she’s better. Perhaps a new leather sofa is in the cards.
