Can you re-create a sofa that has been in my family for years?
Our starting point was a battered frame and tangled springs. Kari’s mother had brought the sofa to an upholstery shop years ago, but when she couldn’t decide on a fabric – fabric paralysis happens – the shop returned the frame and it sat in the attic. Kari had a photo of her brother sitting on the sofa to use as a guide.
Kari’s grandmother purchased the sofa, passed it on to her daughter, and Kari took it to college. Now the restored sofa is in Kari’s home, built by her great grandfather for her grandmother.
