Just a few more photos of my sitting room-this time of the other half, warts and all, with all my piles of clutter!
This is the little sofa I sit on to watch tv, as you can see from the crumpled cushion and fur throw!
The sofa looks uncomfortable but isn't, and is just right for one! The cushions are all Kate Forman- I love the way they all mix and match together. The largest ones were £45 each when I bought them, not cheap, but I got them for Xmas and birthdays over the years, or saved up for them. The quality, however is amazing- the ruffles are all doubled, and the buttons made in contrasting prints. Each one has a sewn in Kate Forman label too. The linen is lovely and thick and they're stuffed with feathers.
My favourite pattern is the grey and pink Sophia, as seen on both chairs, and the lampshade.
The chandelier was another eBay find. It's an old French one and it got shipped over from France for £25. I remember praying it arrived in one piece! It was £195, not much more than repro ones, although it did need rewired. In fact, most things in my house are either eBay finds or from antique markets. Antique furniture is nearly always cheaper than reproduction although you often have to collect it yourself. Luckily we have a little van!
