Megan fell hard for a semi-circular, midcentury tufted sofa she spotted at her local coffee shop but when she tracked down the source, the retail price was an unfathomable sum, only slightly less than the down payment on her house. Yikes!

Once again Craigslist saves the day. Megan found her semi-circular shape but needed to enlist the help of master reupholster Leonardo Ramirez (of Universal Furnishings and Offerings in Phoenix, AZ) to transform the stained, 80’s beige boucle to the tufted, leather masterpiece you see before you.

From Megan:

The end result is incredible and is just as amazing in our living room as I’d hoped. I want to share my story to encourage others to be creative, think outside the box, repurpose and reuse! What may look like dumpster fodder could be the next centerpiece in your home.

Thank you Megan!
