Champagne Tastes, Blah Blah Blah

You know the sinking feeling you get when you find something you absolutely LOVE to bits and want SOOOOO badly only to find that it is out of your realistic reach? That's how I feel now as I'm trying to compile a purchase list for my dream living room.

Remember this?

It's the super FABULOUS room that I gaze at endlessly, *sigh* it's so freakin' gorgeous.

Long story short about the featured sofas, is that I can't afford them. One sofa is $6000 and that's WITHOUT the silver grey finish nor the fabric. BOOOOO!

The Clermont Loveseat by Lewis Mittman

So, in my effort to still have my dream living room at a price I can live with, enter the Isabelle Burlap Sofa

I like this sofa because it has similar lines and detail. The other great thing is that it may be customizable as is Zuniga Interiors other furniture. So with the right fabric and finish, I'm well on my way to a gorgeous living room, ala Tradition Homes.

Oh, I didn't mention the price... I can get both sofas for the less than the price of the "base" model of the Lewis Mittman version. 

So what do you think?  Is it a good substitute? Yea or Nay?

But this is why there's Craigslist. While your saving all your pretty pennies, you scour CL at the same time you might be surprised at what you find.

P.S. I love this... said...

Hey Tonia!

I never find any jewels like everyone else on CL. I guess because I'm actively looking for something I want. It's a pain in the butt.

Funny I was trying to locate a picture of my old Lewis Mittman sofa to send to the upholsterer and there it was. Thanks.
