Our New Sofa

It's about time that I share which sofa we ended up getting for our living room.  It's only been a few months now.  Time really seems to be escaping from me and I'm sad to say that I haven't taken out my camera to take any interior photos in a long while.  The sofa we ended up with is the Muuto Rest and we love it!  It has a wonderful firm, but comfortable feel.   I love how it fits across our bow window perfectly.  I'm also including a few additional photos of our living room as it is right now.  It's still very much a work in progress, but I think I finally got the sofa right. 
 Some of the pieces in here may be temporary as we start to decorate our basement.  I found the Eames rocker and coffee table as well as the Bertoia Diamond Chair on Craigslist in the spring and purchased them knowing that I would need some furniture for the basement.  I am hoping for a larger lounge chair by the fireplace and have been eyeing a couple already!

Other changes to the space include a new fireplace surround that we had cut from the kitchen counter slabs and some artwork.  I'm working on adding more layers to this place and already have some DIY ideas for art and accessories.  As much as I love bare floors, I think we need a rug to break up all this red oak flooring.  Finding the perfect rug, on the other hand, is proving to be quite the challenge at the moment.

So that's what our living room looks like for a split second before the boys come through here and toss the pillows on the floor and pullout all their toys from the cupboards. ;)

Here are some of the sources in case you're interested:
