Ok, so this may or may not be the correct place to post this…..but heregoes:
We have a smaller 1930’s house in central Indiana. I am simply just not satisfied with the furniture i see in stores. the size is too big, the price is wrong for the materials it’s made of, the colors are weird or they are just poor poor quality.
My wife and I want to try building our own pair of love seats or a really wide chair that has become more popular in the past few years. I will probably end up making an ottoman or two to go with them as well.
Anyway, what i need help with is design inspiration. Every book i pick up is about upholstery, not construction. Personally i like the idea of converting a morris chair plan into a sort of ‘double-wide’ and make a couch of it. I also like the idea big comfortable seating that you just sink into.
Has anyone else made indoor love seats?
I look forward to your assistance!
