New Stuff

Angela & Guillaume's apartment is finally getting some new (and very needed!) furniture. Everything that they like has been on back-order, but some things arrived just this week.

The lamp that Angela's mother gave to them finally has a permanent home on the new Mandarin Sideboard. It's a beautiful piece of furniture, and it holds a lot of stuff in it, too.

Guillaume has his new desk! He had some work to do, first.

But after a little struggle, and lots of moving pieces... It is all together, and looks so nice with the new rug.

And the wait for the couch continues. Hopefully it will be here by Thanksgiving, so the Rousseaus can see it live!

Gros bisous

New furniture

Guillaume and Angela are awaiting some new furniture, and some refurbished lamps.

So first, Angela's mother gave them 3 lamps (and almost a 4th, but we're still waiting for that one...). They took them to a beautiful lighting shop, and got some new lamp shades. Two of the lamps need to be fixed a little bit, but they did get to take this beautiful crystal lamp home with a new shade. This lamp used to be Angela's grandmother's lamp a long long time ago. The lamp is very traditional, and the shade is a little contemporary.

The sofa is taking a long time to arrive. Guillaume ordered it a week before Cyril arrived here. It should be here within the next week or so. This is the sofa - but the color will be this little swatch, not the grey in the picture.

This is Angela on the sofa in the furniture shop. They did not buy the ottoman in front.

This is Guillaume's new desk. This will arrive at the end of October! This will go where his current desk sits now, at the front of the apartment, next to the wall of windows.

And finally, this will be placed along the wall that the livingroom shares with the bedroom, right at the hallway entrance to the bed and bathrooms. The crystal lamp will eventually be on this table as well. Of course, this will not arrive until the end of October either.
And finally, this is the parking space. Hooray! It's inside, and warm, and it won't get snowed on, or rained on, and it will be very nice when it's a terrible day outside to just take the elevator to the basement and get into the car. And the parking space is just 2 spaces away from the door! How lucky!

See below for some bathroom pictures, too.
We miss you all, and can't wait to see you soon.
Gros, gros bisous.
