Vastu upholstery in 7 steps: Steps 5, 6, and 7
We’re in the home stretch! We talked about the first two steps in the Vastu personalized upholstery process here, and then went on to share steps 3 and 4 in the process here. So you know that first you choose a style, then you determine dimensions, then you select a fabric (or leather), and then you choose a leg style and finish. Now, we’re going to share the final three steps you take to create your unique upholstered piece made by Steven Anthony.
Step 5: Seat and Back Cushions
You may choose how many cushions you would like for both the seat and back of your sofa or sectional assuming the style you choose has loose cushions. All of our loose seat cushion sofas are made standard with down-wrapped foam cushions. Watch this video for a closer look at how Steven Anthony constructs his sofa, sectional, and chair cushions:
Step 6: Cushion Firmness
You can change the firmness of the foam core of your upholstered piece to suit your level of comfort and/or the function of the item. For example, you may prefer a relatively soft foam for your sofa because you intend to lounge on it quite a bit, and the most firm foam available for your ottoman since you want to be able to place trays or drinks on top of it.
Step 7: Seams
Finally, you get to choose your fabric edge finish. The picture above illustrates (from left to right) a self-welt seam, knife-edge seam, double-stitching and square-tufting. For more on what each of these types of seams, click here.
