Here it is! Our looovely 2nd-hand sofa and chair! It’s from an old Swedish brand called Lani (AB Larsson & Nilsson), that used to manufacture style imitations. In this case: rococo. I can’t wait to set into place in the new living room!
Some time ago, I confessed my love of the Day Home-sofa. I still have a passion for it (we do have a distance-relationship still) but it turned out it’s an impossible love affair. I went to a retailer, I test-sat the couch, I touched the velvet, I thought, felt and decided: Yupp, we take it! This is the one! Though, everything aint easy when it comes to picking the right one. It was a wolf in sheep’s clothing! I had fallen for a prototype! To my surprise and, of course, great disappointment the lovely warm purple-aubergine-plum hue that I adored was only the prototype-colour. Production colour is a colder, more blueish purple hue. See? Not the same.
On the bright side? I saved four thousand bucks! Our superb vintage-findings cost only a tenth.
