before my time, tho I do remember as a very little kid flipping through one at my Grandmother’s house, there was the Sears catalogue aka the Wish Book. Just for fun, if you would like to browse through a 1901 Sears catalogue you can find it HERE.
Nowadays, the equivalent for me is a Crate and Barrel catalogue. Summer, Winter, Spring – any category at all. Even stuff I don’t want; have no use for, I like. I want to live a Crate&Barrel lifestyle. (I’d also like to live a Roche-Bobois lifestyle too – neither one is going to happen.)
You do realize that I can appreciate/like/admire something without actually wanting it, right?
At any rate, I just received the Summer Crate&Barrel catalogue and I am in love (l-u-v) with this sofa, particularly in this color –
It’s called the Infiniti Curve Back Sofa. The problem is I want it in leather. I don’t do fabric. Also I would need a bigger apartment, or at least a differently configured apartment. But still…
I love the shape of this, and I particularly love this color – they call it lagoon, it looks like a dark teal green (or teal blue?) – more green than blue. I betcha this thing is comfortable too. I lovey this!
Ah, Crate & Barrel catalogues, they just make me happy (even tho I wouldn’t buy 99% of what is in them).
