Remember my sofa? The one I bought at the thrift shop way back when? Ya, that one. Slipcovered in that yummy fabric... I love it, I really do. Anyway, I love the way it looks, but I am not sure if I love the way it looks in my new home. You see, when I lived in my one story cottage on Norman Drive, the sofa was the perfect size for the living room, along with my two slip covered cottage chairs.
Now that I live in a three story town home with the very large great room, I am not sure that the sofa is the right size for the room.It's a little hard to photograph the entire room...here is what you see as you enter the room from the long entry hall..
From this stand point it's fine. But, as you enter the room, I feel like it looks a bit lost in the room. (not ridiculously lost, just a bit...undersized, maybe? Maybe not? Maybe I just want a new project?)
Here's the debate- I am feeling like the large living room here might need one of these (in khaki, butter, or natural)... All cozy and inviting, with ample seating, and large enough to make a statement in the ample sized room...hmmm? I like the idea of this style- more of an updated twist on my vintage eclectic...but, at the same time, I feel like the look is just so...contemporary. I know I could personalize it with a throw and some great toss pillows, but, in the end, will I feel like it looks too..expected?
**Oh! I should tell you at this point that if I were to buy a new sectional, I'd sell my vintage slip covered sofa when I do the window display at Camas Antiques,(what a great display that would make!!!) and this could very nearly pay for the new sectional, as long as I get it on sale, which is the budget part of my quandary.**
So...please help me out here. I'd love to hear your opinion, as I am torn right down the middle on this one. What are your thoughts?
