The sofa's arrived and all I'm missing is a Magic Carpet

Day 22

It's panto time and I'm well up for it because like the good Fairy Godmother he is, House Candy Andy has finished the kitchen in time for Christmas. Not only that but I waved my own magic wand and got my new sofa delivered in time for the grand finale too. Check out my Instagram stories for a view of the furnished room, all ready except for the floor.


This is The Northbank sofa in herringbone grey from a local store called Distinctive Chesterfields  and of course I fell for the whole fairy story that came with it. Distinctive Chesterfields is a family firm who hand make beautiful sofas, armchairs and footstools just up the road from me in Honley, near Huddersfield.

You choose the sofa style and fabric, pay your deposit and hey presto, a team of tiny elves work day and night to hand stitch your individual piece of upholstery using finest cloth spun by Rumplestiltskin himself in a faraway chamber of the giant's castle... 

Well Okay so I'm a bit sketchy on the details, but suffice to say, it's handmade near home and it will live happily ever after in my new kitchen extension.

Part two coming up after the interval!
