The public event is on Saturday, March 24, 2018. Mark your calendars! Please share this post on your Facebook and Instagram pages. We want to get the word out to emerging fashion designers in New England, especially those that care about sustainability. There is an FAQ section on the 3S Artspace website but if that doesn’t answer your question, shoot me an email at email@example.com or leave a question in the comments below.
I’m daydreaming about redecorating my dining room. It is so much less expensive than actually decorating.
I’ve long been a fan of built-in banquettes. They look inviting and allow for an extra guest to squeeze in.
This one below is probably my favorite of the bunch. Perfection.
The problem is tho that banquettes are such a commitment. You can’t just move the furniture around if you change your mind. That and the cost of hiring a builder have always kept me from actually ever implementing this decorating concept in my own living space.
Which is why I’m delighted to stumble upon the trend called sofa dining. Why have I only just heard of this? This one below is nice. Maybe just a little too austere.
This one looks comfier. Maybe a little too “country” looking for me.
If you Google “sofa dining” or search on Pinterest you’ll see examples like the ones above. Much of what I found was too fancy and overstuffed for me. Perhaps the solution is a DIY dining sofa. This Maple Sofa by Farrah Sit & Rebecca Atwood is great inspiration. You’d just need to raise the seat to be table height.
