Upholstery

DSC_5613

Another beautiful job by one of our upholsterers – this beautiful sofa was completed last week by one of our talented upholsterers, completed in some of our beautiful fabric.

DSC_5616 As can be seen in this closer image the work has been done to a lovely high standard, with beautifully tailored seams edged with piping.

The fabric really adds to the look of this finished piece – helping to add to the modern crisp look that it has now. If the customer had decided to go for a velvet or a more traditional fabric the final outcome would not be a modern look but a traditional one, which I believe would suit the sofa equally well but would look best in a traditional room setting. As it is though, the geometric design of the fabric helps to give the sofa a modern look, complementing the very angular cushions and arms.

The fabric is 140cm wide. DSC_5619 This is a woven fabric which makes it reversible, meaning that both sides can be used, as can be seen in the image to the right. A great idea for this fabric would be to have cushions made on one side with the piping on the other, or curtains on one side with matching cushions with the alternative colour side showing. This could add a real twist to the room. Along side upholstery, cushions and curtains this fabric could also be used for blinds and lampshades. The colour is very natural means it would fit with most colours within a room, where the design could either be used to blend in or dressed up to stand out. This a beautiful versatile designed fabric, that would really add to most rooms.

If you would like a sample of this or any other fabric you have seen on our website please contact us and we will be happy to help.
