Vintage French Sofa

I love treasuries on Etsy, and I love it whenever I'm featured in one. I discover new shops and items that I wouldn't have found on my own. I do think the treasury system is a little flawed in that I would love to see different shops and items picked for more variety on the front page, but I digress. Etsy didn't ask me.

I was featured in a French themed treasury by BirdsChasingBugs. I was checking it out and clicking the pictures, when I noticed this couch, or rather it "jumped out" at me. My family had one similar when I was growing up. I remember when I went with my mom and sister to someones house to get it re-upholstered. I'm not sure what happened to the couch, but the fabric on the one below looks great. It's for sale by bohemiennes on Etsy. Not only do I love the item, but the staging is perfect, in turn making it the perfect picture. I bet your neighbors don't have this couch. My parents did, once upon a time.

We gave it to a fund raiser and where it went from there, I have no idea. As you know I have since decorated in French Antiques and love both the French furniture as well as food. The furniture lasts for centuries and is always well constructed.

It had to be reupholstered because your smashingly attractive, though clumsy sister dropped a big plate of spaghetti with red meat sauce all over it. And I agree, this is a gorgeous piece.

Love that couch!! It wouldn't go well with my home decoration but I still love it, so romantic! I could picture it in my parents' living room.
