One day while browsing through benches on 1stdibs, I came across this vintage bench from the 70’s. Of course it was already sold, but I really really wanted it. I loved the 70’s vibe and the idea that since this was going to be the first thing you saw when you walked in, it would take up less visual space because of the lucite.
So I emailed the picture to Shirley at Plexi-craft and asked her if she could whip this up for me. Then I headed to Abea Leather where I picked out this amazing gray leather that is shiny, but scratches and will soon have a little bit of a distressed feel to it.
Now look back to my favorite room ever from a few posts ago. Isnt it weird how similar the rooms look? None of the pieces are the same, but the elements are all similar and I guess thats why I was so drawn to it! (I’m not kidding myself here, I know the other room is 10x more amazing. It probably cost 10x more too!)
The funny thing is that that picture is only a few months old, so its not like I copied it. (Which I would have had I seen it! That modern chesterfield s gorgeous! )
I just need another end table and I am probably done with the living room. I am still working on a new dining room table though!
