These two pieces were owned by the same couple with the two previous chairs. See: http://lefebvreupholstery.blogspot.ca/2013/09/two-oak-chairs-blue-beige-geometric.html. The fabrics for the two oak chairs was chosen to coordinate with these two sofas.
The current fabric was actually very good quality, and still in good shape, but it was outdated, and it was time for something new.
Note that the cushion was too long on the front, as well as a bit too wide side-to-side on the front “horns”.
The sofa is also a hide-a-bed.
Previous upholstery that was not removed by the last upholsterer.
The cotton batting on the arms was a later addition…
This is the side of the large sofa. When we were taking them apart, we found that all the old foam on the interior was finished, so it was all taken down to bare wood, and new foam was cut and fitted to both frames.
Previous upholstery roughly cut (instead of removing it) found on the front rail of the sofa.
Sofa frame totally stripped.
New foam padding (the grey portions are reinforced corner joints). Additional teryline was added over this (see next photo showing sofa arm). New deck fabric installed.
The bottom feet are finished on both sides.
