“Zhooshing up” a tired sofa

Once upon a time… we had a beautiful, comfortable sofa covered in a lovely, fresh white linen fabric. Then along came the kiddies! Before long, the sofa was looking very tired and loved to death and was desperately in need of some attention.


So, with the help of Katherine in our Balmain store, we put together a contemporary and most importantly “resilient” scheme.


We played around with a couple of gorgeous Marimekko fabrics and some of our stock fabrics, eventually swapping out the Ohio Ticking in Cumquat  ($45 p/m) with Ruff in Cumquat ($51 p/m) and the Marimekko fabric (Marimekko fabrics starting at $69 p/m).



We love that the sofa looks so fresh and new and can withstand the onslaught of children…

If you’re thinking about re-upholstering something you love, don’t be afraid to be bold and mix up your fabrics and designs. At No Chintz we are well practiced at putting these schemes together and over the years we’ve put together many different schemes for ourselves and for our customers. Just bring a photograph of your furniture into the store and talk to one of our designers.
