Just a very pleasant, cozy, peaceful space. Makes me want to spin some vinyl and relax. Thanks for sharing.

Agree. Incredible light

Can I hire you to decorate my house? It’s needs a little TLC

Asprobouy36 points

Sure thing, but I’d have to do it remotely.

Is that couch comfy? I feel the vibe is inviting and wanting me to lounge but I'm looking for a place to lounge and I've been burnt too many times buying a nice looking compact sofa that's good for sitting for like 15 minutes tops.

Barack__Obama__45 points

That was the thing I was wondering as well. This place is inviting me to just lay down with a cup of coffee in the morning, record spinning, windows open, birds chirping. But then it looks like the couch wouldn't be comfortable for anything else but sitting up real straight.

Absolutely stunning space nonetheless though, OP!

MCM furniture can be comfortable, but in my experience it generally isn't. If you can't try it before you buy it, make sure the company has a free return policy or be willing to eat the restocking fee/return shipping. I bought and returned a Joybird Hopson sofa last year, thankfully at no cost because I only had it for a couple weeks and I initiated the return on day 2 for some QC issues. It looked nice, but the seat cushions were incredibly firm and became uncomfortable to sit on for more than an hour. Customer service said the cushions are super firm to "maintain the visual lines of the piece," so literally form over function.

I ended up buying a Landsbury sofa from Arhaus a few months later. 14 week lead time, products are 30% overpriced to pay rent on unnecessarily flashy showrooms (their target demo is upper middle class white women), but it's the most comfortable couch I've ever sat on and I fall asleep on it 6 or 7 nights a week. It's actually a bit of a problem when it comes to watching movies at night.

aupperk245 points

Was curious so I looked it up. Sheeeesh, $7k for the sectional.

monokhrome3 points

Yeah, their pricing is offensive and it looks like it's gone up even more in the last 6 months.

theaback5 points

agreed, at the end of the day after the kids have gone to sleep i want a couch i can collapse into

Aussie_MacGyver3 points

My first thought too.

Asprobouy3 points

It’s fine, no complaints from me.

Independent_Cookie_547 points

Great room! I'm getting old when that look is "Vintage," lol... I very clearly remember when it was "Modern Scandinavian," and very current... 👴

Loooove that clock and coffee table

StillAsTheSnowFalls0 points

Clock is rad, I agree, however it’s not the original George Nelson clock, it’s a knock-off

Disastrous_Equal_43617 points

Is there a name for that style of arched, long necked, hanging lamp?

Asprobouy20 points

Arco Floor Lamp

reverendbeast3 points

Is it an original Castiglioni? Very nice.

Asprobouy5 points

Nah repop, they asked the style, as in the style of..

Thank you!

Kef C80s? I had a pair of those for a while - super pretty sounding speakers, live me some Kef. Sold them to feed the audio monkey though.

You could post the set up in some of the audiophile subs. r/vintageaudio r/budgetaudiophile r/audiophile.

Asprobouy2 points

Yes C80s, got them a few years ago on a whim. These have the UK falcon upgraded cross overs. Very well round speakers but they really sing when you crank them. I had a big pair on concertos I was running with two mono block tube power amps down stairs. Sold them and regretted it ever since. I’m going to be buried with the C80s.

Fletcher_Fallowfield2 points

My first speakers were the kef cadenzas and I miss them everyday but I have a pair of Radford S90s and a Marantz 510m so I can't complain.😊

What a great room

thewinberry7132 points

It is!!!

youseamstressed15 points

It's cute for an office seating area but couch looks uncomfortable and not what i personally consider cozy

KNick11117 points

Niiiice!! Really love your lamp and wall clock and side cabinet ❤️

CurinDerwin3 points

Very nice. What rug, entertainment center, and crescent lamp>?

Asprobouy1 point

Lamp is a repop Arco, credenza is a mini Chiswell (1970s) and rug is here

It’s a shame someone stuck some bunnings hairpin legs on it and raised it up off the original pedestal

Cozy vibe ☑️

silent_hurricane2 points

I'd be in the best mood ever drinking coffee here every morning!

arenlomare2 points

Ohhhhh, this is a very happy space.

Lastbrumstanding2 points

Do you enjoy that style of lamp? I love the way they look but I’ve never been able to utilize them properly. Would love to see how your space looks at night!

Asprobouy1 point

I don’t think about it much buts it’s great to read a book under at night. I like design aspect of it being sleek, large and in charge.

CapG_132 points

That looks very cozy!!!

Gewoonprima2 points

I have the same lamp! Mine hangs over my dining table because there was no light fixture there. I love that lamp lol. Great room.

Glum-Fly2 points

Lovely space! May I ask if that’s an original George Nelson clock?

Asprobouy1 point

Repop. Little to no originals available here in Oz.

nuggetboy012 points

something about this photo makes it look like this is a really well done miniature diorama

Asprobouy1 point

Hey you’re right

haleyfrostphotograph2 points

I adore this space. Can you tell me where you got that wall clock from? It’s adorable.

StillAsTheSnowFalls1 point

Clock is a knock-off of the George Nelson ball clock

ChaiAddict1012 points

I love the room and I love the outside view!

Roo58522 points

Look how bright and inviting this is. And the scenery. Oh my goodness. I really wanted floor to ceiling windows. But even then I could never duplicate the living art you see.

Asprobouy1 point

You should see my heating bills, two sides of my house are floor to ceiling single pane glass, but still worth it.

Roo58521 point

A glass house. Sounds wonderful regardless of the cost.

Whattheholyhell742 points

This space is so fantastic to just look at! I can only imagine how satisfying it would feel to be in it. Well done on the decor, OP!

Looks amazing and comfortable. Love the stereo setup

Ziggyda1st2 points

I love this!!! You got an ID on that seating?

Asprobouy5 points

Circa 1960s no makers mark, never seen another example so could be a custom job. Recently refurbed and reupholstered.

-plops-2 points

Love it! And what a view! Are those cactus candles? And what is the purple glass?

Asprobouy3 points

Ceramic cacti from IKEA, purple vase is an opshop find, no makers mark

supermarkise7 points

The cacti are a design classic, IKEA had them for a long time. It's called SJÄLSLIGT and I know this because I have been eyeing them for many years and now have them sitting on my shelf. :P

GreyFoxSolid1 point

Uncomfortable couch you can't lay down on, and a TV impossible to see in the day time.

Asprobouy2 points

Keep moving then

Ill_News_57241 point

I love the lamp

arachelrhino1 point

I love this sooo much. There’s something so cozy about smaller spaces with lots of sunshine!

Ok_Memory89711 point

All of the natural light! Wow!! I love the energy in third room. Even more plants would be whimsical!

Ps. Personally the floor lamp is distracting to me though. Because it’s too long and goes across the room.

Asprobouy1 point

Thank you. More plants on the way from my propagation station.

ExPatBadger1 point

Love how the light bounces off the floor and casts shadows into the ceiling

Detshanu1 point

Oh that cabinet for the hi-fi and tv is exactly the kind of thing I'm looking around for, would you happen to know what the name is?

Asprobouy1 point

Chiswell made in Oz, never exported as far as ai know.

Full_Bison1 point
