I do not love his couches.
Well, rather, I did not. See those black-purple things to the left? Those couches? Yeah. I recycled those. But guess what I got in their place?
oh yeah, but one tiny minor detail: it's cat-scratched.
The buttoning is actually in perfect condition, the seat is in perfect condition, it's still solid and firm AND it was made by Emerson Leather in Hickory, NC way back in the late 60s/early 70s. I am thrilled.
I'll be posting updates as I go through all of this as I get time, mostly for my own posterity and my mom (HI MOM I LOVE YOU), but also for the leather-curious.*
More gratuitous pictures later and also probably a recipe for that strawberry fool thing I attempted to make, and yet it was still delicious when it failed.
*NOT THAT KIND STOP GOOGLING RIGHT NOW.
