This reclaimed chaise frame provided a starting point for custom design

Custom upholstery work often begins with restyling an existing frame to the client’s specifications. The first step for this sofa was to customize a reclaimed chaise frame – shown here. The seat springs come next, then re-upholstery with organic and sustainable materials.

About the Author

CarlaHey there! I'm Carla Pyle. I love the stories that our furniture tells. For me a picture of my Granddaddy Milton's green upholstered arm chair brings to mind the vivid rhymes & colors of 'The Cat in the Hat' and his soft low voice in the telling. I love too that there is always an element of nature in furniture - the warm-toned curving grain of a walnut leg or the reflection of life in a mid-century chrome piece. The best part of teaching & sharing natural upholstery is that it ties all of these things together. Stories - of individual experience and of the planet - help us build happy & healthy homes.View all posts by Carla →
