But they don't exist. At least not in real life. Sure, you can find them once in a while in design magazine or on a blog somewhere, but not even Ballard Designs carries a pink fabric for COM so forget about somewhere as transitional as Mitchell Gold (their selection is overwhelmingly beige). Heaven forbid Pottery Barn carry pink! Now, Room & Board does carry a pink couch, but I'm not sure about the style.
It's not bad AT ALL, but is it me? That's what I'm questioning. I do like the idea of a tuxedo or otherwise squared off couch, but it's a little lighter (at least on my screen) than I have in my head. Plus it's only offered in 96" or 75" and I was hoping for something 80-85"-ish. Perhaps I need to make another trip down to 14th St.
So I'd have to go custom, but I can't afford custom. As the fabulous Annie from Bossy Color points out, reupholstery is expensive. If I found a dream couch for $50 at Salvation Army, maybe. But whenever I'm there, their selection is overstuffed and lumpy. Much easier to find a sleek little chair than a pretty couch (that is also not too low or too deep).
I do see a pink rainbow on the horizon, though. Since honeysuckle is this year's color and everyone's gaga over it, maybe mass retailers will wake up and start offering pink couches? Ooooh - or maybe some cool pink print curtains? Supposedly those are back in style, too and I loooove them. In the meantime, I'll just gaze at these lovely couches and keep dreaming.
Those last two shots are SO not my style, but I love the statement of the pink against the modern white and the green painting that you can see better in the second picture whose placement makes it seem almost like a window. Isn't it all just fab? It's pink without even a drop of sweet.
