It's a comfortable sofa in great condition. I've had it professionally cleaned a few times, luckily the cushions are removable for easy clean up. But as the years go by it needed a little updating. I considered having it reupholstered in a new timeless fabric, but the more I thought about it I knew I could breathe new life into it with simple updates.
Adding new accent pillows really brightened the sofa for a fresh new look. I made the gray pillows, but purchased the others.
I added a cozy throw blanket. I swapped out the accessories on the coffee table for a less cluttered look. I also purchased a new rug. The larger rug compliments the space. I don't know what I was thinking using such a smaller rug before. ;)
More pillows on the bench. I love the Greek key pattern. I considered making my own, then I found these babies for a steal at Lowe's.
It's amazing how different the sofa looks in the room just by updating the pillows and few other accessories. I'm so glad I decided not to have it reupholstered.
