shelter chic

Surely most of you have visted the wonderful blog Shelter.
Yesterday Julie Richard posted a piece on tuffed furniture, including the image above.
I am simply in love with the sofa. 
Utterly chic.

Sofas
In the seventeenth century, when an infatuation with all things Oriental began to sweep the elites of Europe, the word sofa, derived from the Arabic word “suffah”, meaning a long reclining bench began to be used. Wealthy people sat on their sofas and drank coffee, a newly fashionable beverage, also borrowed around that time from the Arabs and the Turks.
(I'd like to drink my fashionable coffee on the sofa above....wouldn't you?)
For more information on the sofa visit James Duncan.

Have a wonderful day.
Smile loads.

It's so pretty; but I'd much rather have a cushy, cosy couch to flop into. That one doesn't look too floppable.
