Cool couch!

We received an email recently from Sara, who is one of six editors from around South Africa reporting on trends, fashion, culture, design, photography, interiors and local creatives on the site Itswhatiminto. Their site is a must-read, and in particular this story that features the home of Kelli Crawford and her AMAZING couch. It's gorgeous. I think I'm in love.

Reader request - sectional sofas

Today's reader request comes from Agata: I am 30 year's old polish girl leaving in Norway. Together with my husband, we're thinking of building a house. We don't have a land and a house yet, but for the moment I am concentrating on floors and sofas. Don't ask me why - just because :> And here is the best lime green color I have found so far for my best ever sofa :> The above sofa is not the size and shape I desire. I would like to have a huuuuuge lime green (not leather) sofa. And that lead me to idea of asking You girls of writing  a nice post about huge / corner not-too-much-sophisticated but practical sofas. I am REALLY hoping to be able to fit a sectional sofa in my new living room (when it's built) so I was stoked to search these out in my huge stash of photos. Since Agatha mentioned lime, huge and corner I tried to find photos with sofas in that combination (but only found a few in lime). The first photo caught my eye but it turned out to not be a sectional....but I adore the space and colours in particular so I had to include it.

Reader request - patterned sofas

We received this reader request some time ago from Charly: I am considering a new sofa that is covered with a crazy printed fabric.  It is totally amazing but also quite intimidating for me in my small rental apartment that I am just beginning to decorate. Before I take the plunge, I am trying to find images of printed couches to help me decide if I can make it work.  Do you have any images of sofas and couches with colorful and/or busy prints on them for inspiration? Since it's been so long Charly has likely already chosen her sofa but I was curious to see what photos I could find in my stash of patterned sofas, as they certainly are not everyone's first choice for such a substantial piece of furniture. But why not - you only live once!

Reader request - slipcovered sofas

Today's reader request is from Bonnie: i saw the 'casually draped sofas' but i was wondering about slipcovered sofas. can they be chic? i have very young kids and i love white and cream sofas. dilemma. so i'm thinking my only options are leather or slipcovered sofas? am i right? can you do an entry on this? thanks. I have cats not kids so I'm no expert on sofas that are kid-friendly but I think your best options would be as you mentioned, slipcovered or leather. I think you should go for a white slipcovered one - that way you can throw the cover in the wash with some bleach if the kids decide to dump a glass of fruit juice draw you some pictures on it. Below are some photos mostly of white slipcovered (at least they look like it) sofas with a few cream ones and a couple dark colours thown in for the hell of it. Hope this helps!
