A little bit of before & after!

Before Christmas we started working on a vintage Parker Knoll suite for a very lovely local customer, the sofa is shown above in all its gorgeous new glory. The suite consists of a sofa & two chairs which were in a sad brown velour cover with a grim opaque stain to the legs (already removed in the image below), and a fairly saggy support structure.

 

We looked at lots of fabrics and eventually the customer chose heather & ginger coloured pure wool fabrics from an English Mill. Then our upholsterer got to work, sorting the support and making them beautiful.

Weirdly I bought some old interior magazines recently and found an ad for this very model in a 1961 edition of House & Garden. Amazing to think they have probably been around for over 50 years!
