How that became this: The tale of a vintage sofa who wanted to be loved once more.

So, for some of us it's difficult to have the vision of re-finishing. For some of us it's not. Let's sit back and let one piece of furniture inspire us all. (thanks to my sweet customer who had the notion to face lift this guy, and a few others as well).
note the lines. and the tufting. the bones are really good.
and after! changes:
-new upholstery (obviously)
-no legs
-one cushion along bottom
-beautiful new welting that reinforces the great shape. 
amazing. This piece is a great example of how you can get a fantastic custom piece from a well built piece of furniture that has years of life left. the price? well, a fraction of what you'd get for a similar quality new custom sofa.

ah if only this guy would fit in my space. alas--i must simply play a part in its finding of a great home. can you imagine the years of joy that comes with this? the pies that have cooled on those wire racks? the flour sifted? emmmm. old furniture is WAY better than new--imho. ;-)
