We’ve been living in out house for 12 years this August, and despite being decorated throughout in those years, we have made a checklist of things that need buying, replacing and renovating in 2015. Our dining room needs painting and decorating, we want to revamp our bedroom (the most neglected room in our home) and we really could do with a new sofa or three piece suite.
We had our current sofa just before Joe was born, so it is now 6 years old. It has been a great sofa, serviceable black leather, with a boxy, slouchy style made for covering in scatter cushions and relaxing on. But a visit from my sister’s cat left scratches on the armrests, whilst six years of Joe has seen pretty much every sort of food and drink spilled on the chairs, as well as numerous other things too yucky to mention. So I’ve started to compile a wishlist of potential sofas, with many gorgeous designs from the Newman and Bright website on my radar.
I love Art Deco style, and many of the Urban styles from Newman and Bright totally fit the bill for the 1920s/1930s look. The Gatsby design is just stunning, coming in both fabric and leather options. The rounded armrests and the use of contrast piping makes this a stylish option that I am, quite frankly besotted with. I love the Lichen fabric option, whilst the Oxblood leather design makes this a sofa that could’ve come straight from Eltham Palace.
The Kingsbury is another design that makes the list, again inspired by the Art Deco designs that I always veer towards, with clean lines and lack of fuss. The Knovo also has the Eltham Palace influence, check out the design below, along with an image from the fabulous Art Deco venue.
These are dream sofas, I’m not sure I would ever leave my living room if I was to get one of these this year. If you are going to get a new sofa, I don’t see why it can’t be a design classic!
