Custom sofa & love seat

We are just finishing up a large project, and thought we'd share the sofa & love seat. The design of both pieces is classic, so they would work well in almost any setting.

The sofa is quite large at nine feet - with loose seat & back cushions.

The love seat is a little smaller, at seven feet.

One of the very cool details on these pieces are the feet, which are sort of an inverted fluted design, we love how they turned out!

Both pieces are upholstered in Palermo by Larsen, and the feet are lightly stained natural walnut.

Custom Armless Sofas

Here are some images of two custom armless sofas we just recently completed.  

Both pieces are classically upholstered.  Each seat cushion is tufted with a special hand-stitched "x" detail.  All back cushions are 100% white goose down and feathers.

The solid metal legs are done with a polished nickel finish.

Custom Art Deco Desk Chairs

We just completed two new custom Art Deco inspired desk chairs.  Each chair has a fully upholstered tight seat and back with special inner suspension.

The exposed wood legs and arms are made of solid white oak, with visible screw detailing.

Custom Daybed

We recently finished this Daybed for a client in New York. It's for a baby's nursery and is a standard twin size.

The mattress cover is removable, so the bed can be made up if the need arises, and the entire piece is upholstered in a beautiful Wedgewood blue brushed cotton from Romo.

Custom Ottoman with Metal Base

I'm dying of embarrassment over the length of time that has gone by without an update! To say the workroom has been quite occupied would be a great understatement - it's a good problem to have, but some things fall by the wayside, like updating the blog. So, naturally, there is are quite a few new pieces that we can share!

Moving forward! We recently finished these two ottomans for a project on the east coast. The top cushions are semi-attached, and the bottom portion fits into beautiful bronze metal bases.

Each of the metal pieces had to be fabricated individually and assembled, necessitating precision everywhere. It was literally a puzzle that fit together perfectly.

Before & After: Jean Prouve Grand Repos

Another Before & After! We just finished restoring & reupholstering a Jean Prouve Grand Repos chair. The leather was in quite bad condition and all the metal was rusted & pitted.

Jean Prouve was a French architect & designer (1901 - 1984), who, using the same techniques as in automobile construction, made architectural elements out of molded & welded metal and applied them to his work. Grand Repos is one of his earliest designs. It is an adjustable lounge chair, and the design allows the single seat/back to be pushed continuously on ball bearings along the steel supporting slat.

We cleaned up the steel frame & reupholstered it in beautiful blue leather, take a look!
