This week I became the proud owner of this lovely sofa that I
bought from dansk vintage at the Wooloongabba Antique Centre.
I wanted to have an area without a television upstairs, where the focus
would be on reading or quiet activity.
I originally saw this sofa when I had just popped into the WAC for a coffee. It
was displayed in the entrance foyer and almost stopped me in my tracks. My mum
was still over at that time from Germany, and rather than having a coffee
I turned straight around, hopped in the car and drove to get her so that
she could have a look too before I bought it - all the while
fervently hoping that no one would buy it while I was collecting her.
Luckily it was still there when we returned, and I have been diligently making
payments since then until this week when I finally was able to bring it back
to the old girl.
pride of place
it's hard to photograph but there is some beautiful detailing
in the upholstery
this is the view looking into the room from behind the sofa -
I have had these two little antique tub chairs for about 15 years.
I'll get them reupholstered at some point. The table is
an earlier purchase from dansk vintage too.
the little box with compartments is another
It's always worth a visit to the WAC to have a look around - and the
cafe is excellent too.
