We are so excited to show off this couch! Our clients recently moved from Brazil to Portland, where they rented an absolutely amazing apartment that is framed with floor to ceiling windows on two sides. They were in love with a couch from a store in Brazil and asked us if we could build something similar. Of course we said, “Yes!”
The modern frame fits in perfectly with the clean aesthetic of their apartment. This is a tuxedo style couch, which means the arms and back are the same height. We had the brushed nickel legs custom made in Los Angeles and love how they boost the boxy frame off the floor and give the couch a sense of airiness.
Our clients’ main living space is a large, open room that houses their kitchen, dining area and living room. The sofa is big (96″L by 36″D by 32″H) but its length fits the scale of the room and its height ensures that it doesn’t block their beautiful view. They chose to have the couch upholstered in Expectation Grey, a great 100% polyester fabric with a felted feel. This fabric is a particularly good fit for this room because polyester fabrics are very color fast, even in bright light, so fading shouldn’t be an issue even though this beautiful space is filled with light all day.
The Rachel is a dream to sit in. The super soft cushions are filled with FeatherCloud–a 50% super soft polyester fiber, 45% feather, 5% down blend that is just incredibly cushy and comfy. Our floor model (pictured above) shows off the super tailored slipcover, but you can really change up the look of the sofa by choosing one of the many different styling options.
The best part about this sofa is the slipcover fits perfectly. It gives it a casual, comfortable look, while looking very tailored and neat. This client was looking for a sofa to grace her traditional living room while holding up to the demands of a family with small children. She chose to slipcover the Rachel because she can machine wash or dry clean the cover as often as necessary. The addition of a mini box pleated skirt gives the sofa a finished look, don’t you think?
The upholstered version of the Rachel sofa (above) has super clean lines that show off the frame’s elegant, curved English roll arm. The great thing about having this sofa upholstered is you can also always order a slipcover if you want to change up the look of your sofa seasonally or your color scheme changes down the road.
The Rachel sofa is 84″L by 39″D and starts at $1825, plus shipping. It is also available as a love seat, chair, or chaise.
This Lawson sofa now calls a pretty NW Portland townhouse home. It is upholstered in a really pretty fabric called Expectation Gray, which has the feel and look of a felted wool but the durability of a microfiber. We think it looks especially nice on pieces with button tufting. And from the look of things, Buckley the Dog agrees (love those Bugs Bunny ears!).
If you’re looking for a bulletproof fabric that handles spills, dogs, cats, and the wear and tear of a busy life, Echo Suede is right up your alley. This microsuede has a subtle herringbone pattern and it dresses up very pretty on a wide range of frames. It looks especially nice on this Quinn sofa, which now adorns a Pearl District condo filled with art and furniture our clients’ have collected over a lifetime of travel.
This is a customized sectional version of our Quinn sofa. Our clients wanted plenty of seating in their new home but standard sectional sizes weren’t quite right for their space. So we built them a two piece sectional that is 75″ long on the left side and 115″ on the right. They also wanted a bit more of a lounge-like feel, so we increased the seat depth slightly. Our Quinn floor model has the Thayer base, which features inset sled legs (as on the white sofa above), but these clients preferred the more simple, streamlined Gracie base, so we swapped it in and think it fits their new sectional perfectly.
Gray is such a popular color right now for paint, bedding, rugs, and upholstery. My personal favorite gray is a 100% cotton velvet called Cannes Dark Grey. It has a really lush feel and a deep color that this cell phone photo just doesn’t quite capture. This Bel Air sofa is covered in Cannes Dark Grey (we also increased the seat depth to make this formal sofa a bit more cushy).
That one word completely sums up this amazing Chesterfield sofa that we delivered on Saturday. Hats off to our customers Devin and Hans who used the velvet Chesterfield on our showroom floor as starting point for creating a sofa that perfectly suits their stylish North Portland living room.
They chose all of the lovely details. Supple dark green leather (Echo Meadow Elk from Moore & Giles). A tailored tufted seat. Understated bronze nail heads. Pretty turned wooden legs. A simple buttoned front rail. Everything came together perfectly and the sofa looks like it was made just for them, which of course it was.
