coral-chairNeed a new/old couch and chair? Oh my heart be still — look at this set — in a super-delicious color that I would call “lipstick coral” — all original upholstery — a rare and wonderful weave called “frieze”. It’s for sale currently on the Forum (now closed.)

The seller Douglass says: 

“I actually bought this set from a lady in CA who bought it from deadstock. The CA lady used it in her “home theater” – seriously? – but, I swear, no popcorn grease! At the time I bought the set, I was self-employed and setting up a home office, but, alas, regular employment reared its ugly head and I’m taking a new direction with that room. I hope I did the listing right – I’m a newbie. Love your site!”


Thank you, Douglass, including for permission to show the photos. The set is in Chadds Ford, Pa. One thing to watch out for with these old sofas, I think, is whether they upholstery is all dried out.  And lifting them: They tend to be built like tanks.

    If you ever want to sell your sofa and chair set, I’m your girl. I’ve been looking for a long time and have a turquoise chair with frieze fabric that would look awesome with them.
