I found this sofa, a Flextsteel, on sale. Regular price was $2899, on sale for $499.00. The color was just awful which is why, I’m sure, it was on sale. I slipcovered it in this lucious bronze tweedy fabric that was a bit pricey but was just exactly what I was looking for. I unstuffed the semi-attached back cushions, tacked the old cushion cover part down and made separate cushions instead. If it is ever decided to go back to the original cover the cushion part is there. I can’t think why anyone would ever do that but it is also good for my clients to know that the sofa has not been damaged in any way with the slipcovering.
And here is the same sofa in the third incarnation. Loved that sofa.
