Yes, I just bought a brand new, purple velvet couch. And, yes, I have it mixed in with all of my vintage finds in my living room. I have to say, I really do love it. Of course, purple IS my favorite color.
I love all colors, but dark purple and black have always been near and dear to my heart. I remember telling my mother when I was in kindergarten those were my favorite colors. She was horrified.
I was pleasantly shocked when Howard said he liked the couch when I showed it to him online. I ordered it before he could change his mind. Of course, it could have been worse, did you see this one that I shared on Facebook recently?
Do people really put this in their house?? As one of my friends pointed out, it looks like a robot sitting between these 2. And the blue lights?? It looks like it might take off and circle around the room. I can’t even wrap my head around spending $1600 on this.
But, back to MY couch. Did you see my posts on Facebook and such when I first received it? I only got the the arms and 2 cushions.
After calling and being assured I would get the second half ASAP, I got another shipment of the EXACT. SAME. THING. Yes, 2 more arms, and 2 more cushions. That’s it.
Happily, I did get a third delivery finally! of all of the pieces. Kyle was delighted to put it together for me.
Ta-Da!! Here it is!!
What do you think? The only thing I don’t like are the matching pillows. Well, I do like the matching pillows, just not on the couch. Design Tip: Put the matching pillows on another piece or 2 of furniture in the same room to pull all of your pieces together.
My throw doesn’t look any better. Guess what that means? Yes, a new throw for the new couch.
I love this throw I found at Chic Antiques. Of course, the new throw doesn’t go with the old pillows. So back to Chic Antiques I went.
I like it so much better now. I like the pop of color and the contemporary lines, too. Mixing styles and textures makes your space much more interesting and adds some personality.
If you’re wondering, Yes! I have more pillows if you have to have them, too.
