Victorian Sofa

on

My favourite piece to date. What a fantastic shape! This Victorian sofa sings in Liberty, May Anniversary Vintage Velvet. The double piping trim ties the piece together.

I hand stitched the back lumber support. It creates a luxurious comforting shape to support the lower back. Some webbing had perished so I added some new webbing and retied the back springs. A castor had broken off and a part of the left foot was missing so I took the sofa to my antique restorer who carved a new piece of mahogany to beautifully match the other foot and fitted a replacement castor. What a transformation!
