I like Ikat. I want Ikat. Can you imagine my reaction when I spotted a chair upholstered in this fabric among a sea of earth tone plaids and uninspiring microfibers at my favorite surplus and salvage store. Looks to me to be Kravet.
So I pounced on it. A club chair manufactured by Century with it's $2,753.00 price tag still attached. Then the markdowns begin. First price at the salvage store, $799.00, then reduced to $279.00. Sounds good to me, I'll take it. But no, since I was taking it immediately, you bet I was, it was reduced again to $199.00. Now that's a deal.
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw this.
A cushionless sofa for $150.00. My head is spinning, I get so excited when I stumble upon not one but two great finds at once. I put a hold on it, time for some online investigating.
And look what I found at Ballard Design, I do believe it is my Kravet Vari Ikat masquerading as their Mirabella Seafoam Ikat. I see cushions in the future.
From what I can tell, Kravet made this pattern in four colors, and only one greeny blue. So I am hoping that the difference in shade is the internet's fault. Notice the sofa and chair don't match either online and do in real life. The fabric should be here in a day or two, I'll let you know. Oh, the fabric was $32.00 a yard, more than I like to spend, but well worth it to fix the $75.00 sofa. I wouldn't pay $150.00 for a sofa without cushions, not even this one, made in America by Century.
