I designed the sofa and had it custom made by my upholsterer to fit the space between the bookcases. The tufted back is similar to chesterfield sofas by restoration hardware and Mitchell and Gold.

The loveseat and particularly the fabric color are Exactly what I'm looking for, is there anyway this could be recreated? Seems like whenever I find the right piece it's always one-of-a-kind (?!)

I custom designed the sofa to fit the space and had my upholsterer make it. I designed the taller tufted back to be comfortable for viewing movies at the opposite end of the room over the fireplace in the main seating area. Since this piece sits by itself I wanted it to feel enviting and comfortable. The bench seat (single cushion) allows for more people to cuddle up without 3 seperate seat chsions. This tufted back "chesterfield" style sofa has become popular and there are several retai stores offering simiaar styes such as Mitchell Gold.
