My friend called me last week and wondered if she could store HALF of a sofa at my store ( ReStyle ).
That's right , just half of it.
She is the Drama instructor at our Middle School and she bought this for a prop.
I had absolutley no idea what to expect.
When the custodians delivered it to me , I couldn't believe my eyes.
I text her ~
OMG , your couch has arrived. How do you find this stuff AND we may have to arm wrestle for it !
She text me back ~
You haven't even seen the coolest part !
You're dying to see it , aren't you ?
Ok , I know this picture isn't that exciting.
I took it with my phone and no matter how I try , I can't get it turned right side up !
Please stand on your head to see the awesomeness of it .
Trust me , it's worth it.
This close up is much better .
( I have no idea why it is right side up )
Look at the detail in the carving!
It is in absolutely immaculate condition !
Not worn or faded .
Not a single spring sagging.
Can you tell I am in L*O*V*E with this sofa ??? !!!!
And I haven't even seen the coolest part....
( and I probably won't )
I'm pretty sure I can take her in arm wrestling !
My guess is this sofa is from the 40's.
That's just a guess .
I based that on the style of carving around the ENTIRE base and sides !
Anyone have any better idea?
We have been trying to guess it's origins.
( My friend found it at the local thrift store )
I think it had to be in a dark ( fabric is not ONE BIT faded ),
formal parlor / living room , rarely sat upon ( not A SINGLE saggy part ).
Some of my members HATE it ,
Some of my members LOVE it ( me included ).
Either way ,
it sure has been a conversation piece around here !
