Changing the shape of furniture.

All done and ready for the client.
Sometimes clients bring us furniture that is just screaming to be remodeled. Not just recovered. But remodeled.

Let's face it, styles change. Some pieces are classics and look good all the time. But that's not always the case. Sometimes we buy pieces that are trendy. Maybe they'll be a classic one day. But maybe they won't.

You might be able to change the material or pattern to make it more current. But often it needs more than that.

Furniture that is made well with good quality wood is worth saving and reworking. And that's exactly what we did with these pieces.

The entire shape of the sofa and chairs were streamlined.

The big rolled arms screamed 1990 so the client and their Dallas designer emailed us drawings outlining their ideas and details on how to make it more contemporary. We loved the plan. And we really love the results.





Here's the whole transformation.....

It was a big sofa.
The fabric was stripped and the curve cut off.

It's looking good.

The sofa fabric has arrived from the designer.
Now on to the chairs.....

Bye-bye curved arms.

I was so excited watching the transformation of these pieces.

And you should have seen the clients happy face when he came to pick everything up. He was grinning ear to ear.
