CLAD HOME FEATURED ON OH HAPPY DAY AND A CUP OF JO THIS WEEK!

Hi!  I'm finally going to interrupt the long silence known as "the summer I opened my new store and everything else just had to wait" with a fun little tidbit of news for you. 
 
One of our custom Clad Home sofas was just featured in a collaboration by two of my all time favorite bloggers, Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day, and Joanna Goddard of A Cup of Jo.
 
 

Jordan approached us a few months back with the idea of making a special custom sofa to fit perfectly within the bay window of her San Francisco living room.  Even though they're in the Bay Area and we're in LA, we worked out a good approach for designing their sofa remotely.  
 
They made and mailed us a butcher cut out paper template of the sofa footprint for us to copy exactly to get the size and shape just right.  Here it is spread out on my driveway when we received it ...
 
 
Jordan ordered a bunch of fabric swatches from us to help narrow down her choices (did you know that you can pick up to 10 free swatches from our website and we'll send them to you pronto?) ...


For a while she was considering a coral sofa for a big hit of color in the bay window! But in the end she settled on a dark charcoal grey poly linen instead.


Our poly linens are great for upholstery because they have the look and feel of real linen without the major upkeep that 100% linen requires.  Ours are more durable and stain and wrinkle resistant than linen, so they can stand up to families with kids, pets, etc.  (Plus they're safer than a lot of mainstream sofa brands out there because our fabrics are never treated with toxic fire retardant chemicals.)

This was the final fabric choice ...


We bought extra yardage so Jordan could have roman shades made in the exact same fabric like this inspiration image she'd found on Pinterest ...

 
Then we went through a few rounds of sketching and revisions in order to get the style and details of the sofa just right ...



These are the very glamorous photos we take during the construction phase at the factory...








We shipped the sofa up to San Fran (we ship nationwide these days!) and waited patiently until we finally got to see photos of it installed in Jordan's living room.  Totally worth the wait!  It fit into the bay window like a glove.  These cell phone pictures make the linen look a little darker than it is ...



(the sofa's great, but how cute are those boys!?)

And we're SO pleased with the final home tour photos that really show off the sofa in 
all it's glory ...



Jordan's entire house tour was featured on A Cup Of Jo this week and there are a lot of lovely spaces to see.  And many thanks to Jordan for giving us the chance to make such a unique and beautiful piece of furniture for your home!

xoxo

Congratulations! I saw the Cup of Joe post and actually thought 'they must have special ordered that to-die-for couch' and was so pleased when I saw it was from Clad :) -I am inspired by people who 'follow their bliss' and enjoy it when they get much deserved recognition (even though I am a complete stranger!). You are part of my morning coffee & design blog routine/education and it's fun when you folks collaborate so successfully. Thanks and have a lovely day...
