Retro Living Room – temporary

Well – my beloved Orange couch is in need of some repair.  I am not sure what the damage is quite yet, but there seems to be a popped spring or a broken brace.  *sniff*  Luckily there is a very good furniture repair business in town that I like and trust, so Orange couch will be going to the clinic to get well again.

DSCN1717Unfortunately because the repair needs to be made under the seat it is almost a foregone conclusion that it will be reupholstered when it returns home.  What that upholstery will be I have no idea.  Dave threw out the black vinyl that we used on our other 2 chairs…but I think that may be too much.  White, Cream, Light Grey, Pale Orange….those have all been entertained….but none chosen yet.  What do you think???

In the meantime – I have moved a couch from storage (slated for the future game room downstairs) into the living room.

One item on my list is to fashion some kind of attachment to keep the cushions in place.  They slide like crazy.  Velcro??
