What we had to do was a complete tear-down of the sofa bottom and arms. We used two new leather hides to re-cover the long bottom cushion, all the work is done by hand--Sofa Lady's hands.
Debbie had to fold the leather and work it into place to get the "tufted" look this sofa is known for. Getting all the tucks and buttons just right is more of an art than a science. All of the buttons were made here in the shop by cutting small circles out of the leather and using a button machine we press them over metal buttons to achieve a finished look. Debbie also put each one of the decorative nails in by hand. Once the upholstery side of the sofa was finished it was up to our leather guy to refinish and recondition the back of the leather sofa, with the bottom looking so good the back need a little TLC too! The finished sofa was delivered to a very happy Mrs Hess.
