Furniture Design: Gorgeous fuchsia sofa, the 'Velvet Kettleby Tete-a-Tete'

Velvet Kettleby Tete-a-Tete Sofa
I spotted this gorgeous fuchsia sofa, called 'Velvet Kettleby Tete-a-Tete'. This midcentury-inspired reprise of 19th-century shape looks so elegant and glamorous. With its plush, understated glamour, wide arms and button tufts, it's a styling and entertaining essential. This elegant sofa combined with the Ibex sidetable, the framed terrazzo console in steel, marble & glass as well as the table lamp are also a very elegant combination together. All available at Anthropologie.
