THE MOST VERSATILE TYPE OF SOFA, EVER

Now that I've been blogging for coming up to 2 years, a lot of people ask me for my advice when making big purchases for their homes. Sofas come up almost every other time, because for most of us they're one of the most expensive things we will need to invest in. They need to stand the test of time, be comfortable, within budget, practical and of course look great too.

Looking for a 'green armchair' to perfectly encapsulate a rich jewel green of a mallard's head (yep you heard right) when creating a colour scheme inspired by the bird, I came across the image of her Minx Chair.
