STOP your teenagers eating on the sofa...

A couple bought their sofa from Heals shortly after they got married and were thrilled with it back in the day. It’s had copious amounts of red wine spilt on it, kittens delivered on it and plenty of passion – more so in the early days! But after a few decades, the seat was rough, the arms went saggy and the original foam base was certainly past its best...

They asked Liberty Rose Interiors to work some magic and so the sofa was stripped back to the frame for a total refurb. Choosing the right material for a sofa can be hard but in the end the couple opted for poppy red heavy linen which some complimentary cushions filled with duck feathers to set it off.  The sofa has been totally transformed. And that’s not the only thing that has changed. Interestingly, the new lease of life permeates through other elements of family life. Before the transformation, the two teenagers would eat, snort and sniff in the lounge so there were plenty of unidentified spills, dribbles and stains... There is now a new rule in the house. NOBODY IS ALLOWED TO TAKE ANY FOOD INTO THE SITTING ROOM. As a consequence, everyone now eats together around the dining table.  Wahay – a revival of the great family tea!

Check out these before and after shots for some recent sofa transformations from Liberty Rose Interiors.
