Guy Rogers Manhattan sofa bed for re-upholstery
Just in , a 1960s teak sofa bed in vintage condition . We’d normally clean and oil the teak frame which is not a major task . Then the choice is whether to use Pirelli rubber webbing as originally used , or choose a cheaper rubberised webbing that we’ve recently sourced . We’d have new foam cushions made to current UK Fire Regulations , then let the buyer choose the final fabric .
If you look at our www.pureimaginations.co.uk website you’ll see some of the fabrics we recommend from Camira ( not on High Street ) , Abraham Moon , Romo and Warwick . For something a bit special we’re now trying 2 Eleanor Pritchard fabrics which we’ve just bought . All have websites and we can arrange samples and advise on colours etc . Or you can send us your own fabric ( 4 metres ? )
Final cost will depend on webbing , type of foam and of course fabric choice . Most of the fabrics we recommend cost around £40-£60 a metre , but some will cost more . The most expensive fabric we’ve used for a customer was just over £200 a metre !
