DURESTA RUSKIN 2 SEATER SOFA COVERED IN WEMYSS RIPPLE RRP £77 per metre
This sofa has been stripped back to the bare frame, knocked apart, re-glued 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 completely disassembled the frame and then re glued, re doweled and re assembled every joint so that the hardwood frame was as good as the day it left the Duresta factory. We clamped it up and left it to dry overnight. Once it had dried, we sanded the frame clean and made it ready for the next stage of the build.
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 Wemyss Ripple
This gorgeous Velvet style fabric retails around the £77 per metre mark, it’s super soft and tactile and it’s even washable
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 and covered in the same beautiful cambric as the seats.
The 4 x smaller scatter cushions are Duck feather and Polyester filled
We are willing to make extra cushions to compliment your sofa in other colours, take a look at the images to see some examples of different scatter cushion combinations or browse our FABRICS to make a choice of your own. If you have existing furniture that you would like to tie in, let us know what it is and we will try and source the fabrics for you.
We stripped the front and back legs back to the raw wood and sprayed them in a light 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
