I’m really, really wanting to change out our sofa for something more streamlined and, well, just overall prettier. The one we have, Brendan bought during grad school and it was affordable and comfy. Now, I’m still wanting comfort but also lasting style. Mid-century lines are perfect for this. So, off to Craigslist I’ve gone.

Just for fun I did a general search on Craigslist for mid-century sofas in my area.

Danish sofa that is awesome for $800 in San Antonio

Whoa. This couch is rad. $400

This “golden-brown” velour couch is so ugly but those lines are totally rad. It’s be awesome completely reupholstered in a navy. It’s selling for $175.

Right now, none of these are in my budget but if I could chose I’d pick the last one and reupholster it. That’d be fun.
