It looks like the HOVÅS Sofa in Gobo white from Ikea. Not as nice and poofy looking as this one is but it is also only $499...

Linda I wish I knew! This is an old food safe I had in my shop. Try searching for food or pie safes, good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Reed's decorating philosophy is simply based on the things she loves and has collected over the years. Everything she owns is either vintage or has a special story behind it. "I strongly believe in William Morris' saying 'Have nothing in your home that you do not believe to be useful or beautiful.'"One of her favorite pieces is her craft cabinet, which was originally a food safe, found in Corralitos, California.Pillows: some custom made with Jasper fabric, two from Flock Home; couch: Best Slip Cover Company
Foundation Piece Number Two: The SofaWhen it comes to sofas, you really do get what you pay for. There is a time and a place for Ikea sofas, but when you want something to last, it usually means investing a little more money. Since this tends to be one of the largest purchases for the home, it is wise to play it a little safe. Go for a classic shape, high-quality construction and a neutral color for the most versatility.Tight back or loose cushions? Try out different styles to see which you prefer sitting in. Tight back, single-seat cushion sofas tend to look more formal, while those with lots of loose cushions telegraph a more relaxed vibe.
Becky Harris added this to 21st-Century Looks for Shabby Chic Fans
Highlight found objects from nature. Ashwell used objects like seashells and bird's nests as accessories; create your own mini museum of natural history. The muted color palette here creates a pleasing backdrop for antlers, hives and nests.
2. Natural HistoryThe natural world as a decorating theme is quite flexible and inspiring, encompassing everything from insect motifs and bird's nests to botanical prints, natural fibers and found and foraged items from nature. Support your natural finds with a color palette inspired by the environment that most resonates with you — dunes on a windswept beach, a lush wetland or a dense forest.
