I'm going to have a custom sofa made by Monarch sofas in Menlo Park but-

I told them that I wanted the b&b Italia Michel sofa showed them a picture and some specs too. They have a stock sofa that they call their Megan that they would use as their preliminary base for the Michel sofa. But when it came to the arm width and poof size that I don't have specs for they told me that I needed to provide them with the exact dimension's before they can make it. I can't locate them anywhere. Do you think that you can help with this? Any suggestions would help even guesses...

Their Megan base

another Michel sofa arm-

I'd need for them to make the shelter arm wider at the top and have them add a poof

Hi @greenjunkfood1, this is an interesting project! The poof you're talking about is the cushy part of the arm and back? I think if you call it a "Tight Back" and "have them do the "Tight back" on the arm as well, that takes care of the poof. Do you know the dimension of their Megan arm at top and bottom? It LOOKS like the arm width of the Michel is about 10". You could tell them to make the bottom width of YOUR sofa 10" and the top width 8". This is just a guestimate and you might want to get the dimensions of their arm as well to ensure that it's adding enough for you. Let us know how it goes and post a picture when it's done!
