Coveted: New Sofa

Our new upstairs neighbor, a gay interior decorator, visited our apartment earlier this week to discuss the loud techno music that keeps us up at night (ah, San Francisco!). He was full of praise but dealt a backhanded burn when he complemented us on our "shabby chic" style. Ouch.

Time to paint and buy new furniture. I'm thinking we need to replace our Room and Board sofa in "putty" with something a little bolder and bigger. Does anyone have a new sofa that they're in love with to recommend?

Shabby chic, that's the look I was going for!

I bought in a hurry and now have to sit on my regret daily! Take your time when deciding.

i love mitchell gold sofas. they're so well made and come in so many styles, shapes, colors and fabrics. you're bound to find your forever sofa there. check out Ruby, 180 Townsend Street, they apparently carry some of his pieces.

the latest issue of Domino has an entire section devoted to the perfect couch. maybe there is inspiration there...

Shabby Chic! That is the funniest thing I have ever heard, and truly the most offensive. :)

ps: I'm no gay interior decorator but I don't think your place is shabby chic.
