Last week, I posted about this sofa, which was a
badly recovered retro piece with the original fabric left underneath. It has had some major cosmetic surgery this week! As they say, pictures speak louder than words, so I’ll just cut to the chase for you.
This very vintage looking blue-grey, lightly patterned fabric has replaced the old. I have reused the old foam, but added thick layers of felt and bonded polyester to freshen the sofa and give it added fullness.
This style is called square (or biscuit) tufted (not to be confused with a regular buttoned style). This means that the squares have been sewn together to form channels, and padded. Each channel had to be stitched carefully and equidistant so the end result looks correct.

This client came to pick up her new sofa today, and was thrilled with the look. I just love a happy upholstery ending!
