Speaking of a load off… It has long been a dream of mine to redecorate our home in a modern theme, but it looks like that will have to wait for another 5-10 years. In the interim, we have decided upon a retro look and have been scouring thrift stores, garage sales and eBay for furniture and accessories from the same era as the ribbon-cutting on our home, i.e. 1961.
Today my wife, Denise, and I were leaving a disappointing garage sale, when we happened upon a young gentleman (who happpened to be from New Zealand), standing in the driveway of his new home, next to this sectional. Nothing ventured, nothing gained… we rolled down the window and asked if he would like to sell it. He said, “sure” and we agreed upon the reasonable price of $50.
As you can see, it is a beautiful piece of furniture and it complements the entertainment center Denise found months ago, which shook us from our complacency and began the cascade of interior design activity. It also gave me the incentive to learn how to import images into the blog and futz around with them a little. Aren’t you glad?
Wow..good for you two! Looks great.
Glad I can comment on interior design section. I am anxious to read on as time allows. The room looks great! Although it seems you have Sam’s photo that I WANT on your wall! otherwise very nice.
(I thought you were joking when you got into my Metropolitan Home magazines!)
It looks like someone died on that couch…
Love the couch brother! So mod and hotel-lounge! Looking forward to keeping my eye on this blog…maybe I’ll have to get one too….(a blog, not a mod-sectional)
That is such a cute couch ! Is it comfy though?
Hi Roz… yes, it’s quite comfy, but it can be a challenge getting off of it. Boy, couches were sure low to the floor in those days.
I’m having flash backs from our childhood!
Looks like it’s comin’ along!
