I was interviewed by the Boston Globe recently for a piece they are doing about sofas. What kind of sofa do I have? They wanted to know.
I have the Treadwell sofa by Lilian August. I bought it retail about 8 years ago. (before I was in the business.) It was the first large ticket item I ever bought for my home and I had major sticker anxiety a out it. I got over that though after I fell in love with my sofa.
What I like about it is just about everything. It has a tight back, so now fluffing pillows. It has a high back so it’s comfortable for sitting up. I like a firm back. Also it has pleated rolled arms. That makes it ideal for lying down. It kind of has a grandma look to it with a wood base. But it suits me just fine. I think my next sofa will have a cleaner look to it thought, but I chose well as I am not in the least bit bored of my sofa. In fact I am sitting on it now.
