living room // smitten studiosmitten studio living roomWe have lived in our Los Angeles home for about 5 years now and other then a few tweaks, and a few additions of collected things here and there, everything has remained basically the same since we first decorated it. Most of the items in our house we bought or made because we loved them and/or the story behind them. Our sofa however, we grew to hate and seeing our home through the lens while shooting it for the Design Sponge feature kinda made me want to update a few things.

The sofa didn’t look terrible (if you don’t mind an obnoxiously large sofa with boxy cushions that never really laid straight) but the worst part was that is was insanely uncomfortable. I mean really, how am I supposed to watch a Bachelor marathon if I can’t get cozy? The dogs seemed to have shared in our disdain and wanted to make that clear by chewing holes in the cushions in attempt to pull out all of the stuffing. You can see the old sofa above (pre canine treatment) and also in our design sponge home tour.

Well, we finally gave that couch the boot and welcomed in this new blue beauty from to H.D. Buttercup.

living room sofa  // smitten studioI am looking forward to updating a few things in our home and now that we have a new sofa, that we love, we are on the hunt for a new chair to compliment its fabulousness.

I now only have room for one chair and I feel bad splitting the two yellow ones up (shown at the top) so I am selling them both. If you are interested and live in the LA area (local pick-up only) shoot me an email. They are from Urban Outfitters (& currently still available there) and in like-new condition. I’m asking $250 a piece or $450 for the pair. Let’s find these guys a good home. 🙂
