The owner told me that it is dated from 1880!
I love its special curves and lovely legs.
Its frame is in a very good shape to be 134 years old but the coil springs are not firm enough anymore. So the sofa is in need of a total new upholstery. Meaning hours spending on stripping the old coverings, new webbings, springs, stuffings and fillings. I am already bored by the thought of the stripping task. It' s hard and dirty besides that I feel excited untill I realize that no treasure has been hidden between the different layers. But then, I like every other task although they can be challenging and time consuming.
I am planning to sell the sofa when I have finished it. I am sure that it will be difficult to let it go but I don't have enough space to keep it.
It will be amazing in a bright modern fabric, maybe one of my founds in Thailand?
