Custom Sofa with turned legs

We just finished a custom sofa for a client with a tight back and loose seat cushions. The arms are rolled, giving the piece a quiet sophistication.

The fabric is Linara Glacier by Romo, a beautiful light dusky blue, which contrasts perfectly with the dark wood base and turned legs. Speaking of turned legs...

Before & After: Florence Knoll Sofa & Lounge Chair

Florence Knoll designed her eponymous sofa & lounge chair collection in 1954, and it quickly became a classic. These pieces are highly collectible and we love the opportunity to bring them back to their spectacular original condition. This particular set was well taken care of and in pretty good condition, albeit rather worn and slightly threadbare. 

We reupholstered the sofa and lounge chair in Knoll fabric in a beautiful shade of gray.

The Florence Knoll collection is still in production through Knoll and available in fabric or leather. The sofa is available as a 2-seat or 3-seat option, and there is a bench as well, to round out the collection nicely.
