I got them from Pottery Barn! I hope you can still find them. They're really nice and one would never know in the mix with everything else.

I'd like to know what fabric you used for the cushions - Hi Deborah, I love the couch! I'd like to know where I can learn how to make those cushions and would love to have the same material. Can you shed some light on this for me please? Thanks, Katie

Hi Katie, The cushions were custom made by an long established mattress company, Charles Beckley, in New York. The fabric, unfortunately, has been discontinued. Good luck in making your own! Best, Deborah

Good afternoon Deborah, I am considering building something similar. - Could you share the dimensions of the wooden base of this couch and the mattress as well? I simply want to compare with what I think may work in my space which I believe may be smaller than this room. Thank you!

I was wondering, where do you purchase those cushions. I want something like that only thicker.
Sincerely,
Sandy

Height - What is the height of the wooden base? Thank you.

Deborah French Designs
I'm out of town so can't measure it right now. I think that the total height, with the cushion is about 16"-18" and the cushion is about 5" thick. So the platform must be about 11" - 13" high. You need to determine final height is comfortable for you, what thickness you will make the mattress, and then make the platform accordingly. Sit on your chairs and sofas to find a height you like and then measure the one you choose.

Hi, Deborah...My husband and I would like to try our hand at making these couches, however, I could not find the "discussion" that describes how they were made...any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I see there are a lot of discussions and this one was fairly far back. Basically, I explained that I made the sofa from 3 custom made French mattresses on a built-in u shaped base. I designed the size and style of the base to accommodate the cushions, got the fabricI liked, and ordered the mattresses to my specifications (thickness, firmness, #of buttons, etc) from the mattress company, Charles Beckley, in New York City. It's a bit of a project but I feel it was worth the effort I put into it. I hope that information helps. Good luck if you decide to do it.

Deborah, truly beautiful!! Question - did you do something in the construction of the platform or the cushions to help prevent the cushions from sliding/moving around on the platform?

No, nothing. But you could put a bit of that thin non slip rubber used under rug if you need it.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Elements of Style added this to Pillow Talk: Learn the Lingo of Cushions
The word "cushion" was used in writings as far back as the Middle Ages. Made of sackcloth or leather, filled with hair or wool and often embroidered, these large items were more like the floor pillows of today. In the U.S., the terms "pillow" and "cushion" can be interchangeable. In many other Western countries, a pillow is usually larger and for sleeping, while a cushion is used for lounging.Most standard cushions on the market are 17 by 17 inches square. This is because a standard roll of fabric is 54 inches wide. Allowing for seams, three 18-inch pieces of fabric can be cut, avoiding wastage. Custom-designed cushions may cost a little more, but they open up a world of possibilities.
