Is there such a thing as perfection? Because to me, this comes quite close. First let me elaborate on that couch. It looks strikingly similar to my Meyer Gunther Martini (which I have a strong feeling that this may be one as well,) it is a uniquely proportioned Chesterfield with cabriole style legs. And did you notice those teensy arms? Usually Chesterfields are very bulky and have a masculine appearance. But this one is dainty, so it makes perfect sense that Mrs Emily chose pink for reuphopholstery. She has such a fondness for asymmetrical compositions, even the coffee table is off-center. I love it. And I vow to stray away from symmetrical arrangement. Symmetry is just so comforting which sometimes translates to boring. Asymmetrical compositions, as Mrs. Henderson has proven, are much more dynamic.
I have been searching for a brass etagere like the one pictured for some time now. On my birthday weekend, last month, I found a listing of this exact same style for $65. But someone beat me to it since I had a weekend in Galveston. I was planning on positioning it just like it is here, with my MGM in front, with styled shelves acting as visual interest. I even had a small gold arc lamp in mind that would be placed where she has this lotus-shaped standing lamp, for reading.
Sigh. This Craigslist loss will surely haunt me.
How about you? Any Craigslist losses recently?
