This is a great example. Double drop arm sofas like this really are worth preserving as the mechanisms and frames are very well built.
These pieces are particularly versatile as they create a fabulous day bed or even emergency sleepover for unexpected guests.
The pictures say it all. The original furniture has been stripped down right to the frame and all internal elements checked and replaced where necessary. The end result with the new fabric applied is just stunning. This could so easily have gone into landfill but now it's good for another generation to enjoy.
