What Houzz contributors are saying:
Burlap sacks. Bags made of burlap, also known as hessian, were also used for product transport, especially coffee. However, burlap is loosely woven and made of jute or sisal. While far too scratchy to be comfortably used against the skin, it makes for a fetching ottoman cover. You’ll sometimes find chair backs upholstered in burlap too.
The architectural file coffee table, shown here, set the stage for the furnishings, most of which Hyrb designed and built himself. Hyrb took inspiration for the sofa from big sectionals found in downtown lofts, and the fact that Berman has a Great Dane and needed something large and durable. The fabric is from an old cotton army tent. He added traditional tufting to play on the 1930s-meets-modern-loft theme.
