It's nice to know other people make lists of random things they'd like to have! Just this morning I sent my hubby a list of random things I saw on Craigslist that we probably don't have a place for

Congrats!! And that sofa is super duper awesome sauce...

Can't wait to see the pics of the new space and what you're going to do with it.

Cool! I live downtown LA too, and have a huge concrete wall that's in desperate need of some art. Can't wait to see what you do with your new space!

That is so so exciting!! Lofts are amazing to begin with, so I'm sure whatever you find to decorate will only make it better :) Congrats!

We have 2 of the 5 items you listed! And we're downtown! I'm talking about The Library Store, in the lobby of the central library @ Flower & 5th. (Cards by Rifle Paper Co. & the fabric masking tapes). Since you're an official downtown resident now, you'll have to stop by!

hi bri! i understand the quest for a sofa all too well, you may want to take a look at gus modern (they have affordable button tufted loft sofas). annnnnd, anthropologie has beacon pendants for about half the price. ;) happy hunting!

Hey Bri,
That soffa looks like the one Emily used on Secrets of a Stylist a few weeks ago... she got it from room service on Beverly Blvd. They can do almost anything custom and their prices are totally fair. I think its the Koening Sofa (it comes in a ton of finishes)
Good Luck!

Hi There
The couch, wood exterior and tufted interior, is quite fabulous, never really seen one quite like that. I'm taking that for my design files.
Best.........Kathi

Agh, so many lovely things on this list! A word to the wise though, I picked up some water based nail polishes a few years ago - NOT the Scotch brand shown here - and the instructions said not to leave it on for more than a week....which of course my roomie and I promptly ignored! A month later we were both cursing on the bathroom floor as NOTHING would take it off, including the remover that came with it. Apparently it hardens with time! Those colors are delightful though :)

Congrats on the move. My fiance and I are trying to decide if we should leave our townhouse for a home built in 1945.

Can't wait to see pictures from your new space!

turn up the rad

Congrats on getting the space! Can't wait to see it. My BFF are getting a place together (well, she's buying a condo and I'll be renting one of the rooms) and that's really the only piece of furniture we'll need. Fingers crossed we find a great vintage/thrift piece that is easier on our wallets...Would love to see what you find!

I have been looking for a sofa for two years! I want modern byt comfortable and heres the kicker - in black. Nobody does black sofas these days! grrr but I have had some luck at Z gallery so I reccommend you check there.
