Before & After: George Nelson Sling Sofa

We received this amazing George Nelson Sling sofa recently, that was in need of some TLC. Manufactured in the 1960's by Herman Miller, the frame is constructed of tubular steel with leather seat & back cushions over a leather & rubber sling seat. Like most of Nelson's pieces, it was designed to be as practical & comfortable as possible.

When it arrived at our workshop, the cushions were worn, the leather was cracked & faded, and many of the leather straps were cracked or broken. The steel frame was polished & shined, and we replaced and repaired many of the straps, as well as the cushions & leather.
