the best vintage sofa ever...

this is a piece i will regret selling...but we all need to make a living right???
c1900 french... i have hung onto the piece for 6 years (always thought i would keep it)
i recently had it completely rebuilt and upholstered in my favorite vintage linen sheets.
any takers? it needs a great home!

i even had my upholster add the monogram to the sofa... xx

you can find this and many others items on 1stdibs.com

This must hurt having to part with this divine sofa. I love how you asked your upholsterer to sign the piece. I have a special printer in Paris and I ask him to sign special prints. Carla

Dearest Pam,

What a joy it is to see you! I recall "bumping into you" once or twice, but you really have such a style and flair that I LOVE!!! I thank you so much for coming over to visit. I love your couch! I am getting a new but very lovely and WHITE LINEN French settee made my Ethan Allen. The style is called YVETTE. I am super excited because it will finish off my all white and light gray studio. VERY LOVELY BLOG HERE! Do come again....Anita

that is so beautiful! can't imagine to have to part with it! when you find it a good home, hopefully we will get a peek of the new room it will adorn!

EMILY said...

I have initials monogrammed on a corner of my sofa too!! It's actually my two friend's (who moved the sofa for me, got it caught in the door hook, and tore it) initials with the date. It's a patch to cover the hole, but now it's a sweet sentiment of my moving day from east coast to west. x

Lauren said...

So pretty! If you love something set it free...!

Millie said...

Hang onto it Pam, I'll get MOTH to stow this beauty into his luggage on our way home from our trip to the U.S.!
