I don’t know about you but when I think of an interior with tufted elements, the first thing that comes to mind is a chesterfield sofa. You know the big, brown heavy ones. Which I actually really love! Especially in a library or a cigar lounge or something. Not that I smoke cigars but you know the type of vibe I am thinking about. Then again, ‘going tufted’ can take you so much further than the Chesterfield. And who says we have to stick to the classic model anyways? Why not go turquoise? I love that hint of contradiction and this chesterfield definitely takes my fancy and I love how it is paired with the pistachio green cabinet.
Of course, as we know, tufted design is not only limited to sofas but can be seen in headboards, chairs, stools and even walls which can on one hand add an element of timeless class and on the other add something very loungy to a room. Then again, when done wrong it can look soooo cheesy. I am talking tufted pleather. Is that even a word actually? A friend of mine often uses this term and it always makes me laugh as I just imagine this scene of a woman asking the sales man ‘is this sofa leather’ and him answering ‘Euh…no mam, actually it’s pleather’. Yeah ok, you get the scenario. Pleather…just sounds so wrong that it sounds funny, doesn’t it?
Anyhow back to getting tufted because before closing off for the day, I want to mention this chair with its matching leg rest in ivory! It looks amazing and I can just picture myself lounging in it on a lazy Sunday whilst reading my favorite book! I just started reading ‘The Lost Art of Listening’ and so far it looks really good. Anyone read it?
