I recently moved into a spacious, light-filled loft where I envisioned hosting lots of friends. I’m a serial traveler, and when I have a home base, my favorite thing to do is hang with my people. For my living room, I wanted a big mid-century couch (this style has a wide, low profile), but I wasn’t sure I could find one in my budget. I wondered if I could build something similar, and when I saw wooden pallets being used as a display in a funky vintage store, I had a flash of inspiration. They would create the perfect base for my dream couch.
