I have a new sofa!

Photobucket

I have a new sofa. It's pretty awesome. Normally this would be the kind of purchase that I would belabor for months, but an unexpected opportunity arose to buy this sofa for a very, very good price (working for Urban Outfitters does offer a few perks) so I kind of jumped on it. It's Anthropologie's Milo sofa in Marimekko's Bottna upholstery. I love the rolled arms and tufting - very classic Chesterfield, but the print makes it totally fun and fresh. I realize there's a lot going on now in my living room - perhaps too much? - but for now I'm feeling things out. I may do some redecorating later this summer - new paint, curtains, etc - if necessary. Anyway, here are a few more views, plus some random shots from around the room...

My little Maude likes it very much...

I guess I never realized you worked for Urban Outfitters. Wow, how awesome! What do you do for them?

Love the bold graphic print of the new sofa too.

I work for Terrain, Urban's newest brand, which is a nursery, home store and restaurant. I'm their event planner. And I got married here too.

Thanks to everyone for the feedback. Would love some more suggestions for window treatments espcially!

I would never have chosen something like this, but I LOVE IT. Totally works.

Such a delicious sofa! Wow...also lovin' the whole space. Baout the window treatments...I would keep them clean, no pattern there-- (stylish linen drapes maybe?) Since you already have so much action going on elsewhere....Love the pops of yellow!

Love it! It's a gorgeous, classic shape and a wonderfully fun print. And I love how you paired it with the DwellStudio for Target mustard rose pillow.

Very fun- love the mix of modern and classic! I didn't realize you worked for Anthro. Did you score it at the silent auction? My sister designs for Leifsdottir and I'm always lusting after the amazing deals you guys can get!

Yep, I actually work for Terrain, and yes, it's a lucky score from the silent auction!

And to Miss Pop Culture Casualty, yes, I'll reveal to you later how much it cost!

I have a cat and he ruins all my sofas, even though I have soft paws on him. Do you cats like scratching the sofa?
