What do you do when you purchase a new home, but you cannot find the perfect couch? Online searches, numerous trips to stores and inquiries all around have left you with inferior choices. Your living room is a special size, and you need a special sofa.
Our clients had been on that fruitless search and decided to create their own unique sofa. They wanted an extra-wide super-comfortable chaise lounge to bookend one side of the sofa. They were able to design the couch with our guidance and experience to address their needs every step of the way.
With their input, we made a sketch, seen below. We used the very durable, very cleanable Crypton fabric in their color of choice. They were able to choose their foam and test out the cushions before we completed the others. They chose spring-down cushions which last longer and are very comfortable. As with all of our pieces, we used 8-way hand-tied coil-springs to provide even support and comfort. The process resulted in a great-looking piece that will last a lifetime.
You have the option to design your own fantastic piece with us. You can be proud that it is the ultimate bespoke furniture, made in the USA and in your community. Contact us to discuss your one-of-a-kind idea for your one-of-a-kind piece!
Ready, Set, Put a Stripe on It!
Racing stripes are a growing trend in fashion and home decorating, and upholstery is a great way to add this classic and fun look to your home or office. Find inspiration on the track from speedsters like Herbie, the Love Bug, and classic Porsche 911’s. Style writer Patricia Sheridan touted the vertical stripe treatment in her recent article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Here are some examples from the track and fashion to spark your creativity.
Blawnox Upholstery has been adding racing stripes to some fantastic pieces for years. A singular vertical line can add a sleek subtle or bold touch to a traditional sofa or chair, or it can compliment and highlight the lines of a more contemporary piece. It’s a perfect way to add a personal touch, as you can see below in a few of the pieces we have made. We can help you create your own signature fabric using solid colors, solids with patterns, or even mixed patterned fabrics. Play with color, play with texture, and race your way to your favorite piece of furniture.
