It was a real treat to be asked to re upholster this beautiful love seat.
This piece of furniture is really something special, beautiful on the outside but more importantly beautiful on the inside. The client has a contemporary styled home – so arguably this style of furniture is not necessarily in keeping. The choice of fabric – I believe – really works in a contemporary setting and perfectly showcases the stunning show wood. This is the Doppia fabric by Chivasso/ Jab – it is so so soft with a feel like velvet yet the hardiness of a good heavy weight upholstery fabric. You only get one go with a tack thought as every single hole shows….. so this fabric choice is not for the faint hearted upholsterer! However if you are willing to take extra care and time you will be rewarded in spades at the end.
