New Pottery Barn White Slipcovered Sofas

I finally got the Pottery Barn White Slipcovered sofa and love seat that I have been wanting for several years now and...

no sooner did we come back from California then we headed out to spend some time on the...



opposite coast, here at the beach house. Not that we didn't have a lot to catch up on at home, but my husband had some business to attend to up here and the {affiliate} Pottery Barn slipcovered sofa and love seat that I ordered were ready to be delivered. I'm super excited and also excited that although real pumpkins are still no where to be found in Miami I found some up here a few hours away! Always in love with the soft dusty blue/seafoam color of these giants that have the softer side of autumn feeling...


I paired them up with a large pot of white mums and some smaller real pumpkins that have pale orange stripes. A reader left a comment on my Facebook page that she loved my style that she called elegant with a little bit of relaxed rustic mixed in. I appreciate that and go for a style that isn't too formal or contrived...


This table is pretty rustic and perfect for the beach and informal dinners with family and friends. The chairs are from Restoration Hardware and the table is inspired by RH but was out of our budget, so we built that and have a DIY on THIS revised post that is visually laid out for you pretty nicely...

But this weekend was all about the sofas for me. See them in the background...all crisp and white and bouncing the light around the room?
The before:

We had this big leather sectional in the living room here at the beach and basically we haven't done any remodeling since we purchased this place 11 years ago. It was never a sofa that I loved to look at, but it was very practical at the time facing the large television cabinet housing a deep television that became outdated. The coffee table was free from a client and will probably be replaced too. It's time to shake things up and modernize this place...


The slipcovered sofa and love seat were special order from Pottery Barn and I chose a white washable twill. We tried out the Ikea sets but they just didn't seem to be as comfortable nor as well made, so I waited for a sale at Pottery Barn and when it came up I jumped on them. I opted for the feather and down cushions that are a little more money and offer more comfort...


I am a firm believer in buying quality for certain key pieces for the home, especially sofas and beds. A great well made sofa (these are made in the U.S, which I like:-) will last forever and can be recovered as styles and tastes change. In this case they are slipcovered and washable and I ordered a second set during the sale to have as a back up...


I'll let you know down the line how the sofas are holding up with the dogs, sand, wine and everything else that goes on around here up at the beach!
