Over the years the chocolate brown cover had faded to a dull and patchy brown. I decided to give the sofa a make over and hence bring a change to her living room.
This is how the sofa looked like before the makeover. It is a 3 + 2 seater and had arm rests on ends. I decided to get the arm rests from the 2 single seaters removed, this would make them look less bulky. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a picture with the arm rests. But at least you can see the before picture.
I love the intricately carved cupboard next to the sofa - have been eyeing it for quite some time now ;) This is also a family antique.
The 3 seater before the change -
In the picture below - The cream fabric with a self design that I used to replace the plain brown. I checked a couple of high-end stores including Seasons for fabric but everything was so pricey (Rs 650 to 700 per metre). And I needed about 11 metres. Finally a shop in the local furniture market had this beautiful fabric at just Rs 220 per metre. Great deal I tell you and this is exactly what I was looking for.
The 3 seater is all done! Doesn't this look so royal and elegant? I love it!
The single seaters minus the arm rests.
And the best part is that the new look compliments the rest of the furniture in mom's living room perfectly. We even got 2 slip covers of the same fabric for the cushions on the Kashmiri settee (can be seen in the picture below on the left)
