Unfortunately, the only time I get to go home to my apartment is when I am sleeping or using my sewing machine. It feels as though I have been living at the sculpture building (studio) all semester! Anyway, I was happy to work in my bright apartment as I made the cushions for the furniture.
I lucked out and found some nice 2″ memory foam on sale so I could make a comfortable “mattress” for sleeping and sitting.
After cutting the foam down into their specific shapes, I began meticulously marking off the specific curves of each piece on the fabric so I knew exactly where to sew. There was little room for error…if I messed up the shape then it might not fit on the furniture correctly.
I installed the cushions today and got to test them out. I think they are more comfortable than my own bed at my apartment!
I think this furniture will be quite useful and versatile. I am happy with the way it aesthetically and functionally interacts with the unique shape of the island.
