Preview of New Sofa

This is a preview of the next furniture piece that will be sold.  It's not finished.  As I was working on the back and side fabric panels, I realized it needed another coat of stain in some areas.  Stain takes a whole day to dry and I didn't want to wait that long to show it.

The side and back fabric panels aren't attached yet.  I might redo them and make them a little more cushiony.  There will be at least a couple throw pillows, more than likely 3 - 4.  Hard to see in the pictures, but the seat cushion is tufted.




I think this would be nice in a hotel lobby.  Can you think of other settings where this style could work?

  1. Beautiful workmanship! I upholster human scale furniture and enjoy seeing it done on a 1/6 scale. I bought wood from the craft store about a year ago to see if I could build some 1/6 scale pieces for my lil dollies but got side tracked and never really got started on it. The side chair I planned to build is similar to your couch. I got my idea from a chair that sits in the lobby of the building where I work. I would love to see the end product.

    1. Ollie's Dollies - Thanks! I've been wanting to do some wood pieces the past year and am happy to finally get something done. This was inspired by a picture I saw of a human sized sofa. I will post the finished pictures soon. Good luck with your 1/6 scale chair.

  3. Love the look of it!

    It looks like something that would be right at home in a fancy waiting room - or the home of someone with a modern/angular style.

  4. It looks kind of 60's to me. I think it's the combination of the style and the fabric. (And it reminds me of a couch/day bed that my father in law built in human size!)I think with a different fabric, like a cream silk sort of thing, it would look more like a current at home couch to me.(And not 'waiting room' at all!)Amazing how the fabric can change the whole look.

    1. Ah! I didn't mean it looks like a waiting room couch! I was referring to the ideas about it being a hotel lobby couch! Lobby, waiting room. I meant lobby. Oh, this isn't coming out right at all! I love your stuff.I think I need to go lay down...

    2. Tam - Thanks. I completely understood what you were trying to say. I agree, fabric will change the whole look. This piece could take on many different looks with different fabrics. When I post the final product, I will also post the inspiration picture. I think that will explain a little more. But I can also see this as a nice Asian piece with Asian themed fabrics. That will probably be the next one I create when I do this style again.

    3. I can see the Asian look too. Are you going to stain the wood that dark cherry (What is that colour?),or paint it black?

    4. Tam - The stain in the picture is two different ones. It's mahogany and something similar to cherry. I'm drawing a blank on the name. The Asian one will more than likely be stained or painted black. It will depend on the colors in the fabric.

  5. I think it would look great in the Duke of Swann's office.

  6. Interesting design- kind of modern and retro at the same time. Building lobby and/or fancy waiting room come to mind.

  12. Hi Vanessa, as usual you're crafting a masterpiece! About the style I think of a stylish living room, I would set this couch (with matching chairs and a simple coffee table) along with some miniature ancient or oriental art (a small golden buddha, or a chinese lion in a corner) maybe a light rose persian carpet.....I love mixing modern angular furniture with ancient or baroque elemets...

    1. billa's dolls - Thanks! I love the setting you have suggested. I think the finished product will lend itself to just the type setting you described. Funny you should mention a small buddha. I've been planning to get one for some time now. I probably won't have one in time for this sofa, but great idea.
