Paul, this little vintage loveseat.

Apparently it's just deep buttoning on the IB and buttoned around the armrest.
Though, things could be changed if it makes sense.

Yeah I was thinking Paul being in Florida. West coast, better than the east coast.
I'm way out in California so I'm fine.

General Discussion / Seat cushion -sizing-
« on: September 05, 2017, 02:46:31 PM »
I keep seeing chairs/sofas & other seating with the seat cushion overhanging the front by 2 or more inches. This is really confusing me. Why are people/companies doing this?
Not just re-upholstery but from the factory too.

Houston is going to be a very long time in the re-making. I can't even begin to imagine the amount of materials needed for all this. Of course, people also lost people, which cannot be remade.

Irma looks to be coming for Florida. Folks out there- what is your plan?

Stay safe.

Just as a general rule stitchers dislike fabrics that stretch

You mean for diamonds? Not trying to do that here - just pleats.

Any advice on selecting fabric for true tufting, not just deep buttoning. What to look for, what to avoid, etc.

Thanks

I feel I'm pretty savvy with computers, etc. Grew up with them.

And as such, pertaining to upholstery, I would say
FB & Instagram

No for
LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, they'll be a new one tomorrow.

It all takes time and honestly some of it is a waste.

Instagram is easy, takes 5 seconds, and connects people well.

Thanks, that's my pal Wilbur. He's a hound, mostly mini-dachschund, but part rat? terrier.
I've been looking for a camp for him to go to, but he doesn't like that kind of thing. So it will be difficult for both of us.

So K-grip is a manufacturer/brand from what I can see?

Also, Paul, when you say the seam gets hard what are you referring to? Like glueing two pieces of foam together?

I know my supplier sells gallons & gallons of the Landau stuff.

I personally like the cans because they're convenient and don't take up a lot of space.

I have tried 3M 77 & 84 and both work well for laminating foam & dacron. There's another (94) they market as being stronger but I have yet to use it or need it.

As others suggested, the nozzle clogs easily. If you're laminating foam, just wipe it off on the foam when you're done spraying. This works well for me and anything left behind with be dissolved from the solvents next time you spray.

my FB page is: https://www.facebook.com/2ndstitch/

But honestly I don't do much there. My wife does marketing and her boss even said instagram is better. And, after trying it for a while, it is. It is much simpler and connects businesses much faster.

That is a good-looking piece.

Yes, this mid-century thing is really booming. Probably more so now that the economy is moving and more people have some extra money to spend.

I'm a Gen X and also millenials are going nuts over it.

Out of those I like the bradington&young. Still a substantial piece of furniture.
I was surprised my when my wife said she would be ok to switch out our armchairs as long as I got matching recliners.

The Danish even made sleek recliners. I like that because they are regular-sized pieces. Yet, our style is really contemporary. So I don't think that would fit in terribly well. Probably the B&Y would be better. I'll have to dig a little deeper and see what I can find.

I just have this little dachshund. Guy pulled me out a real hole, and he means the world to me. We don't allow him on our sofa otherwise he'd be up there daily, getting it dirty. But I was allowed to have him up on my recliner before i got rid of it. Want to do that again. Just nothing like a man's best friend.
