In the store: Poul Cadovius sofa

The latest knockout piece to make its way to the store is this sofa by Poul Cadovius for France & Son. It's a newly refinished woven teak case sofa with brand new nubby orange upholstery, and it is going to knock your socks off.

My SIL has just set up a space for taking photos in what was formerly a storage room at the back of the store. I'm loving the new look of his images. Good job, Joe!

    1. The school district I work for part-time captured 1.5 million pieces of spam last week. What's the deal?

      I really love the way the sofa turned out. I had bought that bolt of fabric for myself, but I bought a new sofa, so I let my SIL use it. He said there's enough left for a chair, so I think I'm going to use it to cover the striped recliner and ottoman I posted about when I redecorated my house.

  2. Same, I have tightened comments too! ...back to this sofa! The fabric is very special and an excellent choice for the arm chair, I look forward to that!

    1. The more I think about the chair done in this fabric, the more excited I become about it. I think it will cure what ails that chair entirely. :)

    1. Anything orange is cool, as far as I'm concerned. I can't get enough of it.

      Sorry to hear about your spam problems too. It wonder what's causing the huge surge.

  5. That sofa is stunning Dana. I had the cushions on our couch re-upholstered in a very similar fabric - a copy of an original Australian upholstery fabric from the 50's/60's. Nubby too. Gotta love orange. I love the legs on this one.
    No spam for me, my little blog's too small to warrant it I guess.
    Take care Dana, I'll pop by again when I finish my 'homework' x

    1. Nubby AND orange? That's a combination that's tough to beat.

      Hurry back. Your presence is required for a quorum. :)

  6. Am I the only one interested in where you purchased the Nubby AND Orange fabric? There are a couple of upholstery jobs waiting for Wonder Woman's touch. Lack of proper fabric is the sticking point. Is it a secret or can you divulge?

    1. I bought 22 yards of it on eBay for a song. I also find a lot of good buys online from Winterbeachmodern and Modern Fabrics. Miles at Winterbeach is a super nice guy!

    1. I wonder how long it's been since it made its original trip across the Atlantic to the United States.

  8. There's a seller on Ebay under Alpine out of NC? I think that has some nice deals and they will send you swatches for $1 each so you can see and feel before committing. I used them for the 50's kidney sectional I have in house and saved a ton of money!

    1. I went back and checked my eBay feedback, and Alpine is the seller I got it from.
