In the woods...with furniture shopping

You may recall that I while ago I made my first purchase for the house, a Jimmy Possum Chair. Since then I have been extremely restrained and have waited until now to purchase anything else.........Ooops, I tell a lie, I have purchased two large ottomons that we will use as toy boxes for this kids.

Here is a shopping list of the other things we need to buy
3 LCD TV's
1 dishwasher
1 oven
1 vacuum cleaner
1 fridge

2 lounges
4 occasional chairs
Outdoor dining setting
Outdoor lounge
2 ottomons
3 wall cabinets
coffee tables x 3
6 bedside tables
1 bed head
New bed linen for our rooms
Desk chair
Basically, we are buying everything new...The only things we are keeping are our beds and our green lounge which will go  upstairs once it has had a good clean!

For the last few weeks,  I have been shopping for furniture.  We were going to buy a leather lounge from Nick Scali until we met a custom made lounge manufacturer right here in Sydney. They actually manfucture furniture for hotels, clubs and retailers. However they have a small retail outlet at Wetherill Park.

I actually found Sydney Lounge Specialist  on ebay where they sell direct. However if you are not comfortable buying such big ticket items on ebay,  you can go and meet them face to face at their Showroom. The owners sat down with us and designed two sofas that meet our space and lifestyle requirements. Best of all they had hundreds of fabric choices (including Warwick fabrics). We found them very knowledgeable, adaptable, friendly and well priced. The products are all Australian made and take approximately 4 weeks to manufacture right here in Sydney.

Guess you want to see what we are getting from Sydney Lounge Specialist?


This lounge

In charcoal commercial grade fabric (good for the 2 and 3 year olds!)

With the black, charcoal, beige stripped ottoman

With a few cushions in this. I am also getting cushions in plain charcoal and the stripped fabric

For the "quiet" sitting room this is what I am getting

This lounge, but with the lounge below's arms to match the wing chair   

These arms

In these Warwick Fabrics (the wingback chair will be in the floral, the two seater in the stripped, and the cushions will be a combination of stripped, floral and plain fabrics)

Got to run.......
