I've never really been much of a fan of the Chesterfield sofa. I suppose I've always associated it with stuffy dark gentlemens' smoking rooms, very heavy, very old-fashioned. Yes, the leather is wipe-clean, but think of all those buttons that can collect dirt and fluff!


But you know what? Slowly, but surely I think I'm warming to them, whether it's a velvet fabric version:

...or whether it's a quirky modern twist on the traditional leather...:

...or whether it's just a slightly more battered version of an original...


Done properly, I'm starting to think they're actually quite perfect for my perfect mixture of old and new. Are you a Chesterfield fan?

Cyprus verdict....

(...somewhat belated, for which I must apologise)

Well, the good news is that the apartment is still there and in one piece...and even better it's actually very lovely. Look at these views!:

The bad news is that there is still a lot to be done before it's fully operational, as it were. Still, we at least managed to find some beds:

...and while we don't have a hob to cook on, at least there is somewhere to put our pans when we do...

...and finally at least we have a colour scheme to work from!
