furniture friend

Do you ever have those moments when you're finally catching up on all your blogs and you suddenly feel like lately you've been a terrible blogger, hopeless friend, completely un-creative and that your life for the past few months has just been playing catchup and sorting out admin shit?

That's how I feel today.

I will however post about something exciting I did a couple of weeks ago. I finally bought a new sideboard thingy for our living room:

I love the screen printed drawers. One day I'll replace them with prints of my own...

I've wanted something to go in this spot for ages, and when I walked into Wilkins & Kent's new shop on Little Bourke, there it was, waiting for me as discounted display stock. Yay!

living room clutter
And the coffee table from way back when that it matches. Don't you just love our hideous carpet?

Great find! We have been looking for a new coffee table and tv cabinet, but haven't seen anything like this!
:)

PS. Shh... We have carpet like that too. I'd love to rip it out and put floor boards in...

Mmmm... I found Wilkins & Kent on a holiday to Melbourne, and god I'd love one of their beds.

More than the cool sideboard though, I totally covet your couches - I remember them from another post showing the living room. Where are they from?

Wow, small world. My wife and I loved this design as well. W&K said they no longer do that design, but we ended up getting the same light blue/grey colour as we loved it so much. We have the same red as your coffee table.. it was our inspiration !

I didn't even notice the carpet! I think that the pretty furniture is the perfect distraction, and the sideboard is perfect!

Thanks everyone!! Lupinbunny - oh you like my couch!? The brown leathery one? It's just from Plush of all places. Although we found it out the back in the discount section... ;)

I love Wilkins and Kent but its quite expensive so I just secretly dream of all their lovely things in my house. A new sofa has drained my home decorating budget at the moment. I must go check out their new store...

The sideboard thingy is great. The print drawers make it something special. Nice to see there is some of your prints in the room! :)

Oh, no- I can show you the true meaning of hideous carpet. We have green shag carpet that I do not even have vocabulary to describe well. It is of a color otherwise unknown to humanity, seen only in the living room of my house.
