Ain't This Just About The Sexiest Black Leather Sofa You Ever Wanted To Sprawl Out On? Status: Yeah, Still Needs A Little Cleanup...I Couldn't Wait!
::Shakes Head:: This was found at the Goodwill just down the road a bit from here! It's REAL Leather. It's Thayer Coggin! It's from 1969! It's older than Mr. Modtomic!
I know! Someone just couldn't stand to have this anymore and deposited it at the
Goodwill's back door! There are a few bumps, bruises and some paint splatter on
it but it is cleaning up nice and is in amazingly good condition for being 41 plus
I'm having trouble finding a "comparable" on the web but I get the feeling it might
be a Milo Baughman design. Anybody got an opinion one way or the other
concerning this theory? I wonder if I contacted Thayer Coggin (which still makes
cool furniture BTW) if they might be able to shed some light on this idea.
I'm thinking REAL hard about putting this in the family room and taking out the
green sofa. I might put the green one in the living room / cocktail lounge where the
blue vinyl sofa used to be. No clear plans yet. I am making the Thayer Coggin
available, but it ain't gonna be cheap by any means. The more I look at it the more
I am falling for it.
