Two Velvet Sofas
Finally, after what seemed like a very long wait period, my green velvet sofas arrived a few weeks ago. I love them as much as I thought I would. Perhaps what I love most is how the green changes throughout the day, or even depending on the angle one looks at it from. It seems to glow!
Most everyone recommended I rethink the velvet, or at least not get 100% cotton velvet, mainly because it shows everything and supposedly won't wear like synthetic. I can attest that it does show everything in that whatever touches it can leave a mark on the velvet, but I love that (and it goes away with the swipe of a hand)! I want it to get spots of patina and use! Everyone is welcome to lounge on them (except Rosie!) and, in fact, two days after we got them, Harris managed to get some of his Easter chocolate on them. At least we got that over with and they are no longer precious!
I'll post more pictures as the room keeps coming together... I'm not going for a big reveal here. It's taking a while to get everything in place and figure out how I want everything. However, I will say that this room is quickly becoming my favorite place to be.
