Ditto the above - you'd pay a fortune for that in DFS!!!

Another vote for corduroy.


Susie, the throw was once a felted blanket sent to me by an isher. it was there because I had been finally using some of the stunning stuff to make slippers from lol.

That is amazing. It looks like a totally new piece of, very expensive, furniture.

really impressed. We used to have a corner suite but it got torn and with 4 little people in the house when I was offered a 3 and 2 seater I donated the corner to a friend and too the seperates. The hubby really misses the corner so may show him your handy work.
Thank you

This is such a clever plan - ours is just starting to rip, but in the middle of the 3-seater, so I don't think it will work for me (just hope it lasts till winter then can put a big throw on it!)

Being new I hate to be the voice of any sort of gloom - but will it now fit through the door if you have to move????? We have a similar 3 + 2 and they only just managed to get the bigger one in............

:smurf: (can't help it - still playing with these! Will calm down soon)

lol, yes. it still disassembles into 6 easy to move sections. the two arms, the two seats and the two backs.
