Back when we learned that Herman Miller was not only going to be tweaking the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman to more closely reflect the original design, but to also offer it in a White Ash finish…we knew we had to get one for the showroom floor! After what seems like forever, it was delivered this morning.

What’s that you hear? No, it’s not your local drumming circle…it’s our new Drum Ottomans from Steven Anthony! This pair of ottomans come straight from California and are constructed with the same quality and attention to detail that Steven bestows upon the great sofas, sectionals and chairs we carry.
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
Well, we covered steps 1 and 2 yesterday, so now we can move on to steps 3 and 4 of the Vastu personalized upholstery process.
Step 3: Fabric or Leather
You can choose from hundreds of different fabric and leather swatches located throughout our store for your Steven Anthony upholstered piece. We’ve got some amazing choices – everything from incredibly durable microsuedes, top grain leathers, velvets, gorgeous woven upholstery, and more. We carry well recognized names in the world of upholstery like Maharam and Designer’s Guild. And while we’re confident most customers will find a fabric or leather they like from our numerous options, you do also have the option of providing your own upholstery. We want to ensure you’re getting exactly what you want!
Step 4: Legs and Frame
Wood legs and wood trim details are available in 16 different stains and finishes. Legs are also available in varying heights and a few different shapes. If you prefer your sofa, sectional, bench, ottoman, chair or bed had metal legs, no problem! You can choose from metal post legs, L-bracket legs and metal trim details – all available in a brushed or polished finishes in varying heights.
Here at Vastu we’ve tried to streamline the upholstery ordering process. Since our Steven Anthony upholstered pieces can be made any way you like, we’ve developed 7 easy steps to help you create the beautiful, personalized furniture you’ve always wanted and we’d like to take a closer look at those steps here on the blog.
Step 1: Style
You can choose from a number of standard Steven Anthony styles either shown in our showroom or on our online catalog, or personalize a style all your own with our design staff. And keep in mind, our standard styles are just guides. You can change any of the styles in a number of ways.
Step 2: Dimensions
Here at Vastu we pride ourselves on being able to offer our clients personalized upholstery solutions. Whether you’re in need of a 66″ long sofa in a blue velvet with metal legs, a 10′ x 10′ sectional in white leather with wood legs, or a custom credenza, we have the answer. However you want it, we can help you make it…

Some clients have tiny tots, or little ones on the way and they’re concerned about heads bumping into sharp corners. Customers with older children are often more concerned with durability. Here are a couple coffee table suggestions with kids in mind:
