Quick Camel-Back Post

December 1, 2011 by admin

Well this is a quickie – not much time left in my day!  It’s been a whirlwind of a day with a big ‘load-in’ on Sarah 101.  Finishing up with a project I managed and happy to say it turned out!

In other news…our camel-back sofa (the amazing $75 one) arrived today!  Sara’s mom kindly drove it all the way from Belleville and now Sara and I just carried it into our living room.  Unfortunately I also have a bunch of other furniture, boxes, tools, paint and debris all over the living and dining room.  Adding another sofa to the mix…well…Sara put it best by saying, “For someone who likes to decorate, you sure like to make our living room ugly!!”  Don’t worry, she’s just kidding!  But it is a mess and it’s all because of me and my crazy projects!  I’ll get to it this weekend!

In the mean time, some inspirations for how this camel-back could turn out…

I love the long squishy feather cushion on this one…

This gorgeous green-gold example was from Angus & Company in Toronto and styled by my friend and former colleague Morgan Michener at H&H (am I right Morgan?)…so pretty!

And of course, who could forget the Domino Magazine image from designer Ruthie Sommers with a camel-back sofa covered in David Hicks fabric in raspberry?  LOVE LOVE LOVE!  Don’t think I’ll be going this bold though.  Too much commitment!

And this one’s not a camel-back proper, but it’s a memorable image of a green velvet sofa from the Martha Stewart furniture line.  I always liked this look.   Maybe I could go green?  Hmmmm….

    Ohhh I love that green sofa. What a rich colour. The camel back shape is so… grand yet can be used in a casual setting. How could it be more versitile.

    I was surprised by the multiple cushions on the green gold sofa. I haven’t seen that often on a camel back, but it works.

    I also have a camel back with Queen Anne legs and have no idea how to bring it up to date. I can’t wait to see what you do with yours.
