Union Jack Upholstered Sofa

It's a big year for the Brits, from hosting the Summer Olympics to celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. I just found this image in the June issue of Traditional Home which showcases new trends in British furniture and home accessories.

Traditional Home Magazine from
 Antiques 2 Chic

With the hot trend of the Union Jack showing up on dressers to pillows and everything in between, I thought this was a bold statement in design. An antique upholstered Chesterfield Sofa showing off it's colors; pretty amazing! more to come with this idea...

 If you haven't joined in for 
Vintage Inspiration Friday
it's still going strong. 
Just scroll down to the next post.

Hope you're off to a great weekend!


  1. I Love It Debra!... I am half French and half English (English on my mama's side)... and my oldest niece lives in London now and came home for a visit over Mothers Day and my birthday... she brought me biscuits in a beautiful Queens Diamond Jubilee tin and a celebration ribbon... the photos she emails me of England and the countryside surrounding her flat are just stunning!... I also buy the British Edition of Country Living magazine each month... I think it is so much more beautiful than the American one is these days... thanks for sharing that!... will you be doing some British decorating now?... you always come up with the best things... please share if you do!... xoxo Julie Marie

  2. Love it! Have a great weekend Debra.

  3. Love it! I'm working on plans for a tea tribute to Queen Elizabeth. Invitations to come.......Sarah

  4. Gorgeous sofa! Maybe I could camouflage my faded navy sofa (with its leg re-attached after the elf fiasco) with a Union Jack throw. Quite brilliant, I do say (with an English accent).

  5. That sofa is making my heart skip a beat!

    Quick reminder about my upcoming annual WEDDING BLOG PARTY on June 8th ~ AND I'm having a great giveaway right now, so come on over and enter!


  6. My daughter was just in London and brought me a few home magazines ... full of Union Jack and Diamond Jubilee goodies.

  7. I want that sofa , how much $$$$$

    thanks for entering my 1st giveaway

    That is when I first went to Savannah Georgia, right after the movie Midnight In the Garden of Good & Evil came out, since Clint Eastwood was the director and they talked all About Jim Williams Christtmas parties, I just had to go see that city and have been back 3 times now
    you can now tour Jim Williams house where the movie & the murder took place(murder sounds awful)

  8. The corner angles of leather sofas make it ideal to put them up against a wall if you wish to get more space from the corners of your room or add them as a centerpiece.
