Up-cycling by Carbon Footprint

Circa 1950’s gem up-cycling from the inside-out.

We removed old, tattered and worn upholstery piece by piece and laid them out to use as true patterns of the original. Horse-hair padding was removed, sanitized and reused to maintain authenticity along with new and renovated springs. Canvas netting was hand-tied and wrapped, per the original, to each of the 200 individual springs, 4 times throughout this sofa lounger. Two-tone, updated charcoal grays contrast one another strongly or diminished, depending on amount of light and location. The fabric – Perennials®. Each rectangle piece was hand-cut, sewn and tufted. New buttons were punched and wrapped in opposite fabric. This lounger found it’s way to Phoenix via Grand Rapids, Michigan we found written on the inside framing. It was custom built for a San Francisco penthouse. This is truly a classic beauty.
