Oh, that's really pretty GG. Your living room looks so warm and homey.

I love my dark brown microfiber recliner - it does look like leather but is more breathable than leather, and doesn't make my legs sweaty in the summer. LOL

That's very nice. I'm happy for you. I had no idea microfiber could look like soft leather.

What a lovely room GG, and I adore your lamps! We have the same taste. I must remember to take pictures of mine for you.

I also had no idea microfiber could look like leather! Great find!

Edit: Here's a picture of my lamps and our tree from a couple of years ago. We no longer put up that big tree, only a little one in the computer room.

Is microfiber as strong/durable as leather? I have microfiber cleaning cloths but they are not thick. I guess it comes in various thicknesses? Is it absorbent?

It also comes in different textures and different fibres.

Thanks MM...it's my pride and joy when it comes to possessions. It's all wired for electric now. There's a long story behind it.

Thank you, Kayelle. Your room is beautiful, too. Yes, I love the curved legs on furniture and colorful lamps.

Just thought I'd show off my Victorian oil lamp My aunt left it to me; it had belonged to my great-grandmother, who lived on a farm in Michigan. This is in the foyer.
