We met Mom at Dania this morning because we wanted her help/blessing on our final fabric selections. We know we are going to have to live with these choices for quite a long time, so we really wanted to choose carefully. I think it's safe to say that we made this experience much more complicated than it needed to be, but hey, we feel confident and love our choice, so that's all that matters, I think.
|From a prior visit to Dania to look at fabrics we were pretty sure that we wanted a cream color for the sofa fabric, |
and we really fell in love with this black and cream accent fabric for our chair.
|But of course I just couldn't let go of these other fabrics, which I also really loved.|
Following the advice of a friend, we actually ordered everything from Sansaco Furniture, a warehouse/distributor that is right behind Dania, and saved ourselves about $500. We got the Martin sofa and love seat with the Times Square chair and ottoman. The sofas also come with pillows in the accent fabric. I like our choices because I can basically choose anything as I want to use as an accent color in the room by adding more pillows, curtains, area rugs, or other pieces. Right now I am loving apple green but also teal. We'll have to see what catches my eye!
Of course we still need lots of other stuff for the room like coffee and side tables, bookshelves, etc. but I think this was a really good start! It's going to take 8-10 weeks for everything to come in so we'll have to live with an empty room for a while, but I'm okay with that because I love what we chose... it will be worth the wait and so, so exciting when it finally arrives!
