[…] Green Seat by Sabiscuit – These few photos in Sabiscuit’s post paint a larger picture in my mind. I get a vibe of a smallish coffee shop / cafe that is not a chain store (sorry Starbucks) but rather perhaps a one hundred-year-old house converted to a coffee shop. A place where two people could go and sit on a hand-made couch and talk for an hour and a half at complete leisure. The old wood floors scratched with character lending enough echo and warmth to fill in any lulls in the conversation. I know these places exist, but perhaps the reason it’s so appealing to me is that these are not part of my life, and I imagine what it would be like to be able to go spend an hour in relaxed, comfortable conversation on wood floors. Someday. But a very inspiring post. […]

I’m glad you like it. I know you have a fondness for antiques. The first sofa, with the padded arms, is for sale in the downstairs shop. I am sure the shipping fees would be astronomical. I sat on the one upstairs so I know, first hand, why you need it. x

Excellent, relaxing is so underestimated, yet so satisfying. I am currently listening to

Which I find to be quite awesome, and sinking a few beers, which is acceptable for a Saturday night IMO

This looks like a wonderful place! There’s something about wood floors that just invites a relaxed conversation. And when paired with a comfortable hand-made couch, dim lighting and peaceful atmosphere, it would make for a great evening. I can feel the vibe of this place from your pictures and description!

Thank you so much for that. I think the atmosphere attracts a friendly, open personality; a person who would enjoy the antique feel and not dismiss it as dated. Breathing in that vintage aesthetic has immense value. TGIF x


Thank you very much, NK. I feel fortunate to live in a city where beautiful coffee shops like this one are within easy reach. Have a great Friday and chill if you can. x

I’m still looking on the floor,.. And you say there’s no way you can rip it off and smuggle it to me? There’s lots of caramel corn and wine (or wined corn and caramel if you prefer) in it for you if you do!

Thank you so much. I don’t know what to do about my fascination for wood floors. They’re just so natural and awesome. The shop is located in a house that is over a hundred years old. It was refurbished on the outside but the interior structure is pretty much in the original state. The low lighting is perfect for a long friendly chat over whatever is on the menu. (I’ll do anything for caramel corn.) Thank you.

I stayed at an old raj’s palace turned hotel once and the wooden floors were original oak. It was all I could do to resist getting some tools ripping them, and the hotel owner, off. Wood floors we get today are nothing in comparison.

That hotel sounds fantastic. I enjoy that lived in feel. I do believe that to get the original aged look, it would cost a fortune. There’s this one building, the old city hall, which regularly hosts chamber concerts. You’ll want to lie down and grab a handful of it.
