I with I could help direct you! This piece is long gone, along with all the fabric. I use all vintage and recycled materials to create my usable art for the home at If I still had the selvage of the material, I could check the maker, but I apologize that I don't. Thank you so much for our inquiry!

Vintage Renewal
Hi there! Believe it or not, I bought it on a close out special for only $100 at Big Lots. I was using it in my art studio and then brought it up into the loft for this photograph. Unfortunately, I no longer have the rug in order to check the brand for you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

When shopping for vintage furniture, pay more attention to a great shape than condition of upholstery. Having an armchair or sofa reupholstered is pricey but can still be less than buying new. Plus, you can pick any fabric you like. If reupholstering is not in the budget, you can simply layer textiles over worn areas for a quick update.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Patterned Sofas Furnish Impact
Vintage sofas can have such fun shapes. Upholstery in a surprising fabric works really well on them. Tell us: Have you had fun with patterned upholstery on your sofa? Please share a photo below.More:Six Tips for Choosing the Perfect SofaLoving Color: A Rainbow of Sofas
