Leslie loves all things 1960's so when she saw this 1965 Henredon sofa at a thrift store, she had to have it.
I could not find an affordable icy blue velvet to redo the sofa in (fabric was discolored with age and faded in spots), but I did find this amazing black swirly velvet-like fabric that gives it so much interest. And such comfort! My upholsterer did a perfect job, reusing all of the original padding because it was in amazingly good condition. I could not believe that I had a one-of-a-kind, well designed, fabulous sofa for the price of the bulky, modern sofa.

Thank you Leslie!
