We welcome custom projects here at Lefebvre's Upholstery. We can build for you a large selection of upholstered items, including benches, ottomans, headboards, etc. This is a very large (3 feet by 4 feet) storage ottoman that we designed and built for a client. The main box is made from maple veneered plywood, and the exterior is upholstered with black vinyl with a woven texture.
Main pieces before finishing.
Interior portions stained and lacquered. We did this before assembling the box, because it gives a nicer, smoother finish.
Vinyl pieces being cut to size.
And here's the final product. This bench has a centre divider (to help carry the weight), and 2 hinged and upholstered top lids. The bottom feet are solid maple, stained in a dark walnut colour.
The tops are gently dimpled (no buttons) for a tufted look that is easy to keep clean.
