|Image: 784 - "Coper's" sofa bed brought back to life|
|Even if your quality furniture has been mistreated in the past, it is still quality furniture and can usually be restored to "as new" condition with the right skilled treatment. This sofa bed is a prime example. Made by "Cooper's", the original was of high quality and ideal for re-upholstery. However, at some point it had been badly re-upholstered, leaving the customer in despair. "What can I do?" She asked. "I can't even sit on it."|
On inspection, we found that nothing fitted properly, the sofa bed action was dropping and the cushion fillings had gone lifeless, flat and uncomfortable. No wonder this lady thought her sofa bed was a lost cause.
We were able to reassure the customer that her sofa-bed would be completely stripped back to the frame, we would start from scratch and it would be perfect! Because "Cooper's" furniture is built on frames that are made to last, when you get back to the good wood, there is still a solid foundation upon which to build quality upholstery to match the original.
With our advice, the customer chose a best quality flame retardant "Romo" crushed fabric. The Teflon coated fabrics from this range are extremely family friendly and very popular with our customers because of the easy maintenance and luxurious, comfortable feel that crushed velvet gives.
The sofa-bed was completely stripped to the frame and all interiors (i.e. arms, backs and seats) replaced with best quality flame retardant interiors to ensure it was completely restored to "as new".We also replaced existing seat cushion interiors with best quality flame retardant "Reflex" interiors, to ensure maximum comfort, quality and durability, and which carry a ten-year guarantee. They were also wrapped in a secondary casing, comprising Dacron and stockinette, to prolong cushion life. We also replaced existing back cushion interiors with best quality flame retardant "Fibre-fill" interiors. The combination of "Reflex" and "Fibre-fill" interiors ensures maximum comfort, quality and durability. Lastly, it was finished with a hand-stitched flat skirt.
The result was perfection. The sofa-bed was restored to its original highest "Cooper's" specification, both looking superb and incredibly comfy!
Our client absolutely loved it and said "it's brand new - absolutely beautiful".
