My Beautiful Loveseats and Lamps

I am still tweeking the living room accessories, working around my two new loveseats and lamps from an estate sale this weekend. The custom pieces are in perfect condition and the fabric is wool mohair. The chunky tapered front legs are reeded.

I bought the loveseats within the first 15 minutes of the sale and left a bid on the lamps. I won the pair of Ralph Lauren lamps on the second day and bought the two throw pillows when I picked them up. I loved the tall lamps but wasn't sure about the pleated blue silk shades but they are growing on me. Both rugs in this room have lots of blue so it really looks nice.

I have really never had any fine upholstered furniture and I'm over the moon with my good luck. I have been searching for replacements for the longest time and poof, here they are. I had to get two local guys to pick up and deliver. They did a great job and were very careful. I hope I end up being worthy of these fine furnishings with my dog and a cat. Webster is in shock and the cat hasn't seen them yet. 

I bought the wonder dog a Ralph Lauren dog bed at the sale and he loves it. He is like a displaced dog with no personal sofa at the moment, or ever again for that matter. I still haven't decided where to put the bed. He likes to have his back against a piece of furniture instead of being a floating island like this. We will work it out. I made him sleep in my room last night and that worked well. Wish me luck. 
Enjoy watching Endeavour on PBS tonight. I watched the pilot episode of George Gently this afternoon and now I understand the background of Episodes 2 and 3 that I've already seen. I absolutely love the series. I watched GG online with the link in my previous post and it was free and great. Be sure to watch it there. Enjoy your Sunday evening. xo

I'm so HAPPY for you. They are beautiful and look so smashing in your living room… they were meant to be there. There is no question about it, you are worthy to have them. I don't think there was another buyer at that sale who would have appreciated them as much as you are going to. You have such a good eye, everything about this room is inviting and beautiful. Hopefully the pets will learn to respect these fine pieces too by staying off them.

I'll be watching the last episode of Endeavour tonight.

Your new loveseats look like they fit perfectly in your living room, and with all the pops of blue (the carpets, the side chair), the blue lampshades are a nice touch.

Webster seems to like his new bed; I'm sure you'll find just the right spot for it.

Congratulations on your estate sale finds!

Can't believe you didn't ask permission first from T and W. And they're not even invited to sit on them? You had some other purpose in mind for them? They are are lovely, anyway. Perfect fit.
Actually Victoria Elizabeth Barnes has an amusing post about buying a sofa for her cat Elvis.

Beautiful. These sofas (love seats) look like they were made for your cottage. I am seriously jealous about the lamps though, just what I am looking for too. Never seen anything like them in Sydney unfortunately. We'll done Rosemary. I am certain Webster the wonder dog will get to love his new Ralph Lauren. Lucky dog

The room looks wonderful and I love the pieces you scored. I love it when I can find something that is such a bargain and like new. Webster's bed is cool too!

It is like you ordered the loveseats for this room. I like the lamps also. The room is so inviting and charming! I think Webster seems happy with his new bed. You must be so excited with your purchases. I so enjoy reading your blog.
