2-piece sofa - no arms

Community members, aspiring upholsterers, community service volunteers and spectators alike are invited to participate. Details will be announced with an invitation to the community as soon as the project receives full funding and approval.

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 →

    I am very interested in this sofa. Could you give me a general price for the sofa without restoration and one with coverings (mid-grade) that you provide? Also an idea on how many yards of material you need if I supplied it. You do great work and I appreciate your aesthetic. Thank you. Darcy

    This used to be mine! And I just LOVED it!! I got some new furniture and was VERY tempted to keep this sectional also – except I was trying not to be a hoarder. I hope someone has fun making it their own!
