Duresta Ruskin 2 seater sofa covered in Today Interiors Kariba Ginger Velvet
This sofa has been stripped back to the bare frame and completely remade with brand new components.
Here’s what we did to this sofa.
Stripping and repairing
The frame was stripped right back! All fabric, foam, barrier cloths, webbing and everything else was removed and thrown away.
Once we had removed all of the old stuff, we sanded the frame flat and made all of the necessary repairs to the frame that we thought were warranted before we started rebuilding this lovely piece of high-quality furniture.
We took the lovely, clean frame and we started to rebuild the sofa with components that were either as good as or better than the Duresta originals, we started with webbing the arms and adding new layers of Hessian to support the foam.
Brand new foam and Polyester fibre were put on the arms before we upholstered them with the fabulous Today Interiors Kariba Ginger Velvet (RRP £90 per metre)
Once the arms were upholstered we set about the rest of the sofa, we reupholstered the inside back and covered it in the same lovely fabric before moving onto the coil sprung seat. The seat gusset was hand sewn to prevent sagging and finished to the same exacting standards as the Duresta original.
We closed up the sofa by adding copious layers of webbing, hessian and polyester fibre to support the covering fabric before finishing of the body of the sofa, making sure that the finish of the upholstery was super clean and sharp.
Our cushion interiors are made for us by a specialist company who supply some of the best-known firms in the top end of the upholstery trade.
The seats are Duck feather and Polyester fibre mix, these are covered with a beautiful quality, down proof cambric cover to prevent the feathers coming through.
The formal back cushion interiors are 100% Polyester fibre filled
The 2 x smaller scatter cushions are Duck feather and Polyester filled
We are willing to make extra cushions to compliment your sofa in other fabrics, if this is something you are interested in.
We stripped the front and back legs back to the raw wood and sprayed them in a very dark brown Walnut stain before spraying them with multiple layers of Clear Lacquer.
We have added a much more sturdy Brass cup and Castor that makes the Duresta originals look a little bit sorry.
Included in the sale are a pair of full-length arm caps in the same fabric as the sofa. These are much bigger than the Duresta originals and reach right to the back of the arm and right down the side of the seat cushion
