Now that it is open to the kitchen and with the implementation of a few strategic openings it has become the central hub. Knowing this would be the case I wanted all the furniture in this space to be extra comfortable and since I usually gravitate towards more tailored or sculptural furniture I had a hard time finding pieces that were just as beautiful as comfortable. SO, I set out to design my own. The sofa that is (well the rug and the coffee table are also my own designs but I will touch on those later).
When I looked for a partner to build my dream sink-right-into TV watching, sunday napping sofa I immediately thought of
First thing first, I sent them a sketch and explained what I wanted. I gave them overall dimensions, arm width back height, seat height, cushion construction and count etc. and they came back with a more detailed drawing for approval. My idea was to make a deep sofa, that had modern lines but one that still looked like you could melt into the cushions. I also knew I wanted to use a performance velvet and juxtapose the more lux feeling of velvet with the relaxed look of a slipcovered sofa. Spoiler it isn’t actually a slipcover it just looks like one. OH and one key component I knew not to pass up was their Trillium Fill option. The cushions weigh a ton but that is what makes them something you want to dive into.
Once the sofa plan was approved they were in communication and sent me some photos of the frame along with some clarifying questions.
I was able to then specify exactly where I wanted the piping and what size as we got right down to the nitty gritty details.
When it came to choosing the fabric I turned to my go-to Fabricut for their performance velvet
A month or so later, they delivered the sofa and I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. Clad Home’s price points are also very competitive so I was able to get my dream sofa for less or the same as some of my favorite off the shelf sofas. Also I love that they are made right there in LA and by working with them I’m supporting a small US business.
Since I worked with them they have started a new Custom Concierge Program for those wanting to order “off the menu”, like myself, where they pair you up with a dedicated Clad Home designer to walk you through every step of the custom furniture design and ordering process. Now if ordering a fully custom sofa still sounds intimidating to you never fear! Clad home has tons of options where you can
You simply select the model then with easy drop down menus, you choose layout, fabric, size, cushion style, fill, leg style and finish and boom you have your perfectly customized sofa in the cart.
