HELP, I need your opinions on some furniture
nutcracker · 21/06/2004 12:41
Right i am buying a leather suite 2&3 seater.
Can't afford a lot so have opted for one of the ones where you get the 2 seater free.
I'm stuck between two though.
First ones are in the additions book if anyone has it, on the back of the catolouge.
The others are in the argos book Roma ones page 177.
I'm having choclate.
Would appreciate some opinions.
Oh and whilst you're looking, what do you think of the table and chairs on page 255. Again it's cheap but looks o.k to me.
Did want one that seats 6 but decided to just buy a couple of fold up chairs for when we actually all sit at it.

don't know what sort of table you're after (don't have the additions cat.) but i think MFI sell dining tables and they might have a summer sale on too, it shouldn't be all that expensive but i don't know if there's anything in there that you'd like. imo an extendable round table is ideal for a small room.
CD- i liked the ikea sofa. the furniture i really like for a normal house is the stuff they sell in heals, but that is really expensive. Oh, modernist furniture is just Perrrfect! You're not saying you own an original courbusier chaise-long (no idea how to spell this at the mo)??!!

well, if money were no object , even with a cho. themed room, you'd make a real statement by choosing a really ott sofa in a bright red or cobalt blue or bright yellw. it would have to be a really innovative design to amke it work. but all this would happen in another life ....

No nor am I really nutty. It does have that liney thing that the others you liked had though, but without being puffy IYKWIM
I have huge 4 seater sort of reddish moleskinny sofa and a choccy brown very square chair. They look lovely together. Do you not think all leather (ie 2 sofa) may be a bit stark? Are you having carpets or hard flooring?

Right i think we've decided (actually i have) that we are having the ones from additons book for 699.
We are having laminate CD and i thought it may be a bit stark too, but i'm getting some fake suede cushions and some fake fur ones too, to soften it up a bit.
God i bet your all thinking "god thats sounds gross"
