Look what I found at Mitchell Gold/Bob Williams. The Clifton sofa. Only 36 inches deep, and while very different from that Henredon leather I loved, there's a lot to like here. I'm digging the wood base and slender arms. Also, I've always wanted a couch with a single seat cushion. This picture is the 97" length, but we'd do the 85. What's better, the 85 has two back cushions rather than three, which I think is cleaner. I'm hoping MG/BW has some decent fabric choices because its upholstered all the way around. COM is 17 yards, and you know there's no ceiling on what you can spend on fabric.
There's a Clifton chair as well, and its just as good looking, but I worry about everything being square. Remember this stuff will be sitting in front of a long, rectangular Chinese cabinet and a big black rectangular TV. If we wanted to throw in some curves, the Winslow chair could work. They're 32 inches wide, and we'd likely want a pair (perpendicular to the sofa). They're 36" deep which seems like a lot, but they'll sit on the long axis of the room so it might be okay. I'll have to make templates to be sure we have room. COM on this is 7 yards, not so bad.
And finally the one thing we've both agreed on and decided would be perfect across from the chairs and in front of the fireplace, American Leather's Rex bench. We'll buy it just like its shown here, in white leather. Modern, but with a little mid-century feel too. I love the buttonless tufting, and most importantly it provides some extra seating and doesn't block the view of the fireplace.
The only bad news so far is that the asian-legged cocktail table I bought to refinish isn't going to work in here. I think it would look fantastic, but the 42" square size is just too big. It's not really bad news though. On the other side of the media wall is a whole other room (living room) waiting to be furnished as well. That table would also be fantastic between a pair of loveseats or apartment sized sofas, floating in front of the big front window.
