When we found this1950's vintage sofa, it was in need of much love; but we could see the potential. After purchasing it and taking it home, the brainstorming sessions began. Ideas came and went, and we finally decided we wanted the edging of the seat cushion to have a different fabric than the rest; with this idea in mind, it was time to find the fabric.

It was easy to settle on a stylish grey linen imported from Italy, but the accent fabric was giving us a harder time, until Philippe suggested using a sarape. From there, we just had to find the perfect one and settled on this one, imported from Saltillo in the State of Coahuila, Mexico.

The sofa was given new foam, the legs were re-stained and reinforced and the re-upholstery work began.

With the extra sarape, we made two pillows and in the end, we were extremely pleased with the results.
