New is always better! We all have pieces of furniture we love but, over time, have become worn and need some TLC. As long as your pieces of upholstery have good structure/frames, adding new fabric and detail can be just the ticket to bring your old furnishings back to life! Our client loved the overall style and comfort of her sofa and bench, although both needed to be updated.
One of The Goode Touch Interior’s designers, pictured on our client’s old sofa below, is noting that comfort is a key factor for our client, so down-wrapped cushions will be replaced for both seat and back cushions.
The bench is used as both a foot rest and coffee table so durability was very important when selecting new fabric.
Our client recently inherited a beautiful antique pillow cover and wanted to incorporate it as an accent pillow on the sofa. A turquoise blue pillow insert was designed so the color peaks through the spaces between the button closures, while decorative silk tassels were added for the finishing touch.
Pictured below, the new fabrics & trim completely transformed the sofa and bench! The client was in love at first sight! The sofa was reupholstered with a textured linen fabric from Kravet and the skirt was accented with decorative tape. Two additional throw pillows were created with a cream background to accent the antique pillow and contrast with the main sofa fabric.
A commercial-grade Pollack fabric was selected for the bench because of its durability. Its soft, brushed nap gives a luxurious feel and the metallic welt cord frames the cushion beautifully.
We designed the sofa with the original welt detail and a flat flange on the pillows for diversity.
To bring attention to the sofa’s skirt, a Highland Court tape was applied at the bottom, giving a tailored appearance.
The antique pillow turned out to be the perfect centerpiece for the sofa.
And the silk tassels give the pillow the extra detail it was calling for!
