We've been stalking craigslist for mid-century modern furniture for a while now. Two weeks ago we found what we were looking for....well mostly. A Vintage Flexsteel sofa & matching chair plus a vintage recliner for $150. Since they were an hour + away I sent Justin, in a rented cargo van, to go pick it all up.
(The giant black overstuffed monstrosity in the background is our old couch. Nothing wrong with it, SUPER comfy, but it totally didn't fit the look we wanted.)

Whichever chair stays (this one or the one that matches the
couch) will be reupholstered in the lagoon blue tweed you see
on the top back of this picture.
So this is what our living room looks like with all the new furniture. I think we need one less chair. Currently Justin and I don't agree on which chair needs to leave with the black overstuffed sofa, but we'll keep you updated on
who wins which way we go.
