I am very excited to share my latest completed furniture restoration project, in particular because I worked with an amazing upholsterer who documents all stages of restoration offering a rarely seen view into this little-acknowledged art.

This wonderful sofa had great bones and great sentimental value for my clients who live just outside Kansas City.  They very much wanted to keep the piece, but were unsure of how to use it in their home in its current state.

It needed repairs to the frame, new stuffing to the cushion and desperately needed a new upholstery job.

After a broad review of fabrics, we kept coming back to one of the first we selected from Magnolia Fabrics.  It was bold and unexpected for this piece, but just felt right for the client and would completely reinvent this heirloom.  We decided to go for it.

So we consulted with the wonderfully knowledgeable Kansas City Upholstery who did a full and comprehensive restoration, completely taking the frame apart and re-gluing it, and documenting the process.

After all this tender loving care, I was desperate to see the final result!  And it was no let-down, that is for sure.  This piece now lives happily in an eclectic, modern home and will be in top-notch condition for many years to come.  Thanks to my wonderful client and the expert services at Kansas City Upholstery!
