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).
