  1. Looking at the “before” picture, I’d say you did an excellent job giving this couch set a new look. It looks a lot livelier now than it originally did.

    How did you find the chair for $199? It’s listed for more than that online right now. I’d love to save a bit!

  3. Fantastic and well put together.

    The best part is it means the Strandmon is starting to be available. I’ve been waiting for it in the USA since I saw it briefly feature in the online catalog in July!

    I’m sorry you haven’t gotten much love from mean-spirited, anonymous commenters here (seriously, kids, if you have nothing nice to say …), but I think this is an incredible, charming space you’ve created. This whole corner looks like something from a boutique hotel.

    Love the chevron reupholstered footstool, the nail-head trimmed chair and that pillow!

    Amazing work.
