Our New Teal Blue Sectional

August 25, 2014

Long time readers know my passion for the color blue, the hue finds its way into so many spaces and projects I touch. I’ve been dreaming of a teal blue sofa for a long time and teal/peacock blue continue to be my all time faves.

When designer Kyle Schuneman (who I interviewed years ago) made the announcement over the summer he had partnered with Apt2B to create a sofa collection, my little heart leapt for joy when I spied one in his collection that had everything I loved in a sectional sofa: clean lines, a bit of tufting, midcentury styling, and that color I adore.

I crushed hard on the Logan Sectional in Chicago Blue and requested a fabric sample be sent to my door pronto. Upon its arrival, our fate was sealed, the sectional needed to be mine! So I made a bold choice and ordered it from Apt2B for the Nevada house and I’m so so in love with it!

The fabric is a tweed like poly blend fabric with interwoven threads of deep turquoise, teal blue, and black and the sofa is made in the USA.

The mustard yellow ikat and zebra pillows are from a local RC Willey; the teal geometric pillows and blue inlay tray are from HomeGoods; the throw blanket and wood lantern are from World Market; the Palm Springs Kayla rug is from Joss & Main; and the coffee table I found for $20 at a thrift store. Chrome base + solid surface top = total score!

We have no television or media stand or curtains or art, but we’re hoping to fill that in time as the renovation continues. For now I’m just enjoying the beauty of our new teal tufted sectional – I want to make out with it but that would be gross and weird so I’ll settle for fondling and caressing its tailored curves…
