Jason and I got a tip from my co-worker about an estate sale in a 1960s ranch. We went on Saturday when everything was half off and I was surprised to see that the couch I had spotted in the online preview was still sitting in the living room.
The sofa was covered with junk but we loved the shape and decided to go for it. It was marked $200 so we got it for $100. It was set up in the living room as a straight couch without the rounded corner piece, and we might end up using it that way in our new house. It’s in desperate need of new upholstery and new foam for the seat cushions which were…crunchy, dry-rotted. Gross. One end of the sofa doesn’t have an arm rest, like a chaise, which is pretty sweet. We set it up in the loading bay of our storage facility for a quick photo shoot before we packed it away.
Wow! That is awesome!
Great find! Looking forward to seeing what you all do with it. And to sitting on it in your new home. 🙂
That is super sweet! Man,I miss out on all the cool MCM stuff in Nashville lately. lol!

Found a super cool upholstered and chromed mid-century office desk chair and some groovy salt & pepper shakes there.
Can’t wait to see this sofa reupholstered and in your future living area!
Yes, we have been to Pre to Post Modern. It’s a great place to find mid-century furniture for reasonable antique store prices. We got a dresser for our nursery there last summer.
that will be an amazing couch when you get it recovered!
[…] And we kept going and going. Most recently we traded in our new-ish sofa and bed frame for 1950s sofa and bed frame replacements. It’s not just because we love the style of the vintage […]
