This weekend Mr. CP and I were so very busy. On Saturday, we put down our first coat of finish on the floors. Then, to escape the fumes, we checked out some sofas at the furniture stores in our old neighborhood, Hayes Valley. The folks at Propeller and Inside are very helpful and full of knowledge. They carry high quality modern styles that differ from the standard chain store ones that you see everywhere, though for the most part at significantly higher prices.
Mr. CP has a crush on the firm foam cushions and the angled arms of the Modernica Case Study Couch that we saw at Inside.
I LOVE the Vioski Chicago Sofa. I thought it was beautiful and comfortable, especially in the lovely blended gray material on the one in the Inside showroom, but it was definitely not within our budget and a little too girlie for Mr. CP. He wasn't a fan of the round arm pillows.
Modernica Split Rail Couch with Arms. It sort of looks like the love child of the Case Study and the Chicago. I think the buttons add that extra something that I find the Case Study to be missing and I also prefer the wood frame to the metal legs. Mr. CP likes it too, so now we need to find a showroom in San Francisco that carries it so we can test it out.
