A Brief Encounter with Perfection

Stuff rolls through our dock doors every day, really cool stuff. We all stand and ogle it and wish it was ours, and I guess, for a short time at least, it is – until one of you comes in and gives it a home. But this sofa, it was a custom order – which means it comes and goes without giving us time to enjoy it. It caused quite a stir when it rolled into the warehouse.

This is not one you see very often – a leather upholstered chesterfield, in the most amazing leather you’ve ever seen. It’s a Cisco Brothers sofa – they call it Edith (if you want to see the tye-dye version of Edith, take a gander at this previous post – we loved this one too.) It’s a remarkable piece of furniture on its own, but man, when you slap some leather on it, it becomes a work of art. It’s a classic. It’s perfect. It’s Brideshead Revisited meets Downton Abbey meets… well, something else really cool.

We hardly had time to unwrap it before they were coming to pick it up. In fact, these pictures were taken right on our front porch while a team of delivery guys stood behind me, fingers tapping, waiting to put it in their truck. We watched it go with heavy hearts.

Now, don’t worry, this little story has a happy ending. We loved this sofa so much that we may have ordered one just like it for our showroom – one we will get to have for a spell. We have to wait for it though. It will be a while before it appears at our back door – this level of perfection takes time.
