    I am very interested in this sofa. Could you give me a general price for the sofa without restoration and one with coverings (mid-grade) that you provide? Also an idea on how many yards of material you need if I supplied it. You do great work and I appreciate your aesthetic. Thank you. Darcy

    This used to be mine! And I just LOVED it!! I got some new furniture and was VERY tempted to keep this sectional also – except I was trying not to be a hoarder. I hope someone has fun making it their own!
