The fabrics chosen by this client simply ooze luxury and style.
The suite comprises one sofa, a sofa bed, two lift-top footstools and a matching child's chair.
With the sofas having a three-piece base, each piece being upholstered separately, we had to work painstakingly to make sure of perfect pattern matching. This shows up very well in the main close-up photograph of the arm.
For the main body of the suite, our client chose a sumptuous 80% wool striped fabric with the cushions being upholstered in a complementary patterned linen union fabric, both being from Scutt & Coles. These beautiful, natural materials will give many years of service and retain their stunning looks throughout. They may be expensive, but they are made to last.
Bbefore upholstering the sofa, sofa-bed and footstools were stripped back to the frames, which were checked thoroughly, and all interiors replaced, as and where necessary with best quality flame retardant interiors. Making sure that the frame and interiors are all in perfect condition is the only way to ensure they are all restored to "as new" condition.
The existing seat cushion interiors on the sofa-bed did not need to be replaced. They were, however, wrapped in a secondary casing, comprising Dacron and stockinette, to prolong cushion life. However, we did replace the existing seat cushion interiors on the three seater sofa and footstools with best quality flame retardant "Reflex" interiors, which carry a ten-year guarantee. To prolong cushion life, these were also wrapped in a secondary casing, comprising Dacron and stockinette, to prolong cushion life.
Back cushion interiors on both the sofa and sofa-bed were replaced with best quality flame retardant "Fibre-fill" interiors. The combination of "Reflex" and "Fibre-fill" ensures maximum comfort, quality and durability.
Lastly, all four pieces were finished with a rolled edge and arm caps made for the sofa and sofa-bed. Five scatter cushions finished the look to perfection!
Our clients were impressed with the result and the first class pattern matching and said they would certainly recommend us. They are members of Which? which is why they initially contacted us and we look forward to reading their review of our craftsmanship and service on our Which? Trusted Traders feedback page in due course.
