velvet sofas

The enveloping elegance of a velvet sofa.

My first custom upholstery experience was with a vintage wood-framed sofa I reupholstered in a champagne velvet with a custom down wrapped single cushion. Joe’s Fabrics here in New York City did an excellent job with the reupholstery and new cushion. I’m looking forward to working with the next client who enjoys the rich comfort of a velvet sofa as much as I do.

Welcome and Happy New Year!

Doors have long been symbolic throughout many cultures. They were first seen in Egyptian tomb paintings, and the Romans advanced the architecture with the use of single, double, folding, and sliding doors. The Roman god Janus was the god of door and doorways, as well as beginnings, endings, transitions, gates, gateways, and time.
