home: favourite thing [ midcentury style sofa ]
We often are hunting for that perfect vintage find in homeware and furniture. Midcentury sofas are popular and seen in many current interior trend boards and inspiration, but finding an original in great condition isn’t easier and not everyone wants to doer-upper!
We found this great little two seater sofa in the style of our midcentury favourite. The tone of the wood, the silhouette and the upholstery are all perfect to recreate the retro look.
And this great find from SofaFans is just £184.10!

For many it’s the go-to site for buying things you need last minute (thank you amazon prime), others loath it for being the big quasher of other stores through its competitive pricing and ease of shopping – but it does offer small stores an outlet to reach a bigger market (albeit if they take a big cut) and also it’s surprisingly home to many many good interiors pieces.
