New Finds at RCKNDY

Last weekend, I stopped byD.C. furniture boutique, RCKNDY the source for my "perfect sofa" and spotted several additional items that I love.  RCKNDY has a great selection of furnishings from modern stores that are a little difficult to find in stores such as Blu Dot and Gus Modern.   I recommend seeing pieces before purchasing, especially seating. I walked in the store and the Gus Modern Rochelle sofa had me questioning my sofa decision.  The following images illustrate why I was tempted.  The Rochelle, pictured above in ash gray is sleek and the right scale for a D.C. apartment.  The image below shows the back which features  seductive exposed legs.  And the sofa is quite comfortable, although slightly lacking in back support which could be remedied with the right pillows.  A flaw that  my Paramount Sofa does not possess with it's fabulous back cushions.

The following were other knock outs that had me wondering if I could find a location at my place or in a project.  Additionally I thought that I would share my thoughts about comfort and the designs.

Gus Modern GT Rocker Perfect in scale for a small space but a little uncomfortable and the rocking functionality is not as smooth as I would like.  However, the price , the lovely bouclé fabric and the overall design aesthetic may make this worth it!

Blu Dot Buttercup Rocker Despite the bendable plywood frame, this rocker felt more comfortable.

Blu Dot Shilf  Ivory LOVE THIS!!! I noticed this one the last time I was in the store and I am still trying to find a use for this modular powder coated steel beauty.
