Is it worth it?

This week, Decorno did what she does best — generate discussion. In this case, what is or isn't worth spending on your home — with a special eye towards sofas. Interesting reading.

Pictured is an obscenely expensive George Smith sofa. Can anyone remember how a few years ago these were all the rage in decorating magazines? They seem to have faded.

Oh yeah, I remember that sofa in Domino, in linen, I think. About ten grand, right? Ouch!

With a sofa THAT expensive, I would wonder, do I own the sofa OR does the sofa own me????

i remember seeing this sofa in an issue of domino a few years ago too - the one i remember was mohair i think, navy blue. it looks like a great place to sit! but i cannot forsee myself having 10k to burn on a sofa. even a charmer like this one.

I spent 10k redoing my entire kitchen, and bought my 5k couch second hand via Ebay for about $750.

Priorities!
