Before and After: Old Spring Sofa to New Rocker

Before and After: Old Spring Sofa to New Rocker

This project requires slightly more DIY skills than I have (I'm a fan of the 'near enough is good enough' approach to measuring), but it shows what's achievable with some know-how and a lot of creative thinking.

The rocker is the work of Måns Salomonsen who took a one week challenge to give an old piece of furniture a new designer life. The old sofa was taken apart and the rocker was created using original and modified sofa pieces, so the back legs became the rockers, the back frame became the seat and the bars became legs.

You can see full coloured details of the rocker design here at Måns Salomonsen Design.
