Fridays with Foz: The Couch

Today we completed the final steps of our newest creation. This gorgeous couch started out as another run down vintage piece. (If only we had taken a before shot!)

Although the arms originally had a yellowish varnish, Leland refinished the walnut wood arms with a  
hand rubbed wax finish, exposing the original grain.

We decided to use a combination of Pendleton and Danish wools when upholstering the cushion and frame. The subtle differences between the two shades give the couch a dynamic and modern look.

The original legs were a stained oak that didn't really fit the couch, so Robert from Beam & Anchor was kind enough to make us a set of matching walnut legs.

The backrest cushions are a natural latex, while the bottom cushions are a high resilience foam.

This couch is quite a beauty and is currently for sale at our Rejuvenation Pop Up Shop. 

Hope you stop by for a sit.
