I have a thing for all things British. Not sure what it is, but I’ve always been fascinated with our neighbors across the pond. Perhaps it’s just that charming accent, but I’m smitten. From books to magazines to movies I try and get a daily fix of jolly London.
My latest obsession has become English arm rolled sofas.
Here are some of my favorites:
I think Sofia Coppola’s sofa from House & Garden is what started my fascination.
Then I spotted this beauty in Country Living:
Then the oh so talented Erika showcased a version of this sofa with a skirted slipcover.
Now I don’t technically need a new sofa, but wanting one should count for something. Do you think Jon would notice if I did a swap out while he was at work? I’m sure our bank account would notice, because these babies tend be pricey.
Sofia’s sofa is from George Smith and while it’s lovely I think I would be in trouble for buying a sofa with a price tag that could also be seen on a used car. They go for around $5,000-$7,000 dollars!
Restoration Hardware also has an option that is a bit cheaper at the $2,000- $3,000 range.
Pottery Barn has a slip-covered version in the $1,500- $1,800, which is reasonable for a sofa.
Sofa Craft has a variety of designer look-alike sofa’s at a fraction of the price!
Check out what I found:
Amazing! I did some research and they seem to have good reviews and a couple not so good. They have been in business since 1965 and they have a showroom in Orange County where you can go check them out. Plus they ship nationwide.
Anyone work with them before?
* All this research and I know I’m going to get a big no from Jon, but I had to share this great find with all of you!
