I found this antique Victorian children's sofa last year. It was shortly after I had purchased the wicker furniture set for the babies, which was a huge hit. I thought an indoor piece of furniture just their size would also be a lot of fun for them.
Although in great shape, the sofa needs new batting and fabric. The fabric choice however - a pattern? a solid?, what color?, etc., sort of brought the process to a standstill. Recently however, my friend Kate shared with me the fabric she used to reupholster an antique wing chair for her office. It is a wonderful material, and I am going to replicate her idea for the children's sofa. I'll share it with you when it's completed.
The Duncan Phyfe sofa project is also moving along. We just dropped it off at the upholsterers yesterday - with three boxes of organic batting, and ten yards of organic fabric.
It will be done before Thanksgiving, which is very exciting.
