Blue Is the Color of My True Love's Sofa

STUDY is in the final stages of compiling colors, photos and swatches for a client mood board. We'd like to say that we're being completely selfless in this endeavor... then along came the Hutton.

We wrote about our sofa quest months ago, but the search has been pretty much in vain. Scratch that. The search has been glorious and yielded lots of great finds which are mostly out of our price range. Sure that vintage Paul McCobb sofa looks great at $2,500, but when it gets bid up past $5000, well then we're crying ourselves to sleep.

So back to the Hutton:

At $2,199 she's 98" of tufted velvety goodness. We think she looks best in indigo, and if you added a some strong yellows to the room you'd be working a VERY on trend palette. Although maybe such a clean and luxe sofa calls for something a little more sober:

Okay, the grey's nice, but who needs sobriety when you've got the option of "blossom" velvet!

The swankiness is killing us. And speaking of Paul McCobb, just watch how the sexy quotient raises when you pair the blossom Hutton with a vintage brass based McCobb coffee table:

No. words.

Whatever you do, just don't buy the 78" single cushion version:

Sexiness denied.
