Considering the size of the space, I needed a 48 – 55″ wide loveseat, anything bigger would be too close to the front door. There were a number of 60″ ones that were great, this one in particular, but I just couldn’t squeeze it in without it looking and functioning poorly. I wanted something a little low with no arms to help keep an open feel. Finally settled on this one once it went on sale 20% off. There was a large selection of fabrics it could be made in so it took me a couple weeks to choose. I took home several rounds of samples; greys, dark green, and taupe linens. I settled on a woven dark grey and ivory fabric. Eight weeks later…
The rope chair is actually an outdoor chair from Ikea. I’m looking for a chaise, or two small arm chairs to replace this so it’s more comfortable to have friends over. When I do, I’ll move the rope chair into the office/dressing area to watch tv.
I found the overhead light and considering the price, couldn’t pass it up. The cord runs along the edge of where the wall juts out so it’s not so noticeable and plugs in under the bookcase.
The final shot was taken before the pillows and the overhead light, but I wanted to give you the scale, see how small this place really is.
