Project Information

Made from quarter sawn white oak, dye stain and shellac finish. Leather upholstery. Completed in June of 2015. This is an interpretation of the classic L. & J. G. Stickley No. 220 Settle. That piece uses frame and panels for the sides and backs, where I opted for rows of spindles, and then created a love seat to match. I'd always loved this design, and on a leap of faith, near the end of the build, we got rid of our existing old sofa and love seat on the hopes these would be comfortable. They were! This was the first time I worked with an upholsterer, and worked with a a great local shop that did and excellent job.

I blogged about the build here and on my site at:

Great looking projects, and beautiful finish as well.
The upholstery is a perfect finishing touch.

Thanks for the nice comments. And the pictures are amazing, but I didn't take them (probably because I didn't take them). I have a pro photographer friend who wanted to try doing some furniture shots (not his regular thing) for fun, and I said hell yeah. So one afternoon, with a helper, he brought in a slew of lights a diffusers and other equipment, and went at it for an afternoon. Then he spent some time on the computer color correcting and all that jazz, and said "here you go! Let me know when you'd like to do some shots of your other pieces." Oh, you know I will. :)

Sorry I'm so late with my comment, but I love the sofa and loveseat. They are beautiful and look great in the space. I'll be sure to check out your blog on the build.
Cheers
