we have the legs

The old style legs for the sofa were delivered today and I really like them!

Now I only need the sofa. Basically I have this idea to make a sort of sofa without the back rest but with large cushions and really really chunky cushions filled with wool. You know like they used to be in the old times? Mattress like. Those.

Inspiration for the chunky cushion sofa
My much simpler version of the sofa base, on top of which goes the chunky cushion

Not sure the idea will ever become reality. No tools, no time and small budget. The wool filling alone would cost a lot, not to consider the upholstering work. But I surely have the legs 🙂

As a past time, I put up some more of the recent vintage picture acquisitions… (bad light, I know)

Oh, yes, the antique tiles were delivered too. And works inch on.

      Danke fuer Deine nette woerter Julia!
      Not sure it’ll come all together, but it’s an adventure and today i feel like “carpe diem” anyway! We’re dust particles that are to be blown about at any moment, we can at least indulge in the present when possible 🙂

  2. Love the idea of the mattress sofa. For me it would have to be tall enough that I could easily get up from it. Work inches on is a great description. Here too but different kinds of work. 😉

      not sure i’ll manage to get that type of cushion. It’s hard and pricey to get the wool to fill it, sadly. I couldn’t find any local source either
      I hope your tidying and clearing proceeds at faster pace than inches 😉
