Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

New Sofa

It served us well -- this sofa
Bought in 2005

It lasted for 11 years . . . 
far longer than any other sofa we've had
And it's "coat" (the upholstery) held up really well
since it was leather

But it was saggy
And the right side was held up by three books

But the upholstery was so good
We were hesitant to get rid of it

We liked the color and the style

The color went perfectly with our other furniture

But alas, saggy bones was getting to me
And on a stop to Moore's Furniture in Frontenac,
we found

The "New Guy"
A bit darker than the old one -- more brown than rust
It's narrower, too

But I think it looks good in the living room

LOTS of changes over the last year in the living room
One . . . at . . . a . . . time!

First the rug
Then the coffee table
Then the "comfortable" chair
And now the sofa
I really can't think of another thing that we need to change!

I like it -- 
The new sofa as well as the new look of the living room
Different but not all that different
Which suits me fine!

The room looks great. But the true test of whether or not you got the right sofa is how the dog looks, sleeping on it! This is always our final test for the item. xoxox

It's perfect - looks like it's always been there and that is the true test for me.

I've always wanted a Chesterfield, but I loved your old sofa, too! The new one is fabulous.

And while not changed this year, it's still been less than a year since you got your new rug. Your whole living room looks excellent!

Ok, I see you had already mentioned the rug!

I like it. Looks good. We have a sofa that has faded, but is still comfy. There are plans to move it into the family room when our remodel is done with a slip cover!
