This channeled sofa makes a serious statement. Buttery soft saddle leather creates a cushioned, hyper-comfortable couch that demands your guests’ attention. Pair with rich bronze accessories, and don't forget to add texture using rugs, blankets, and greenery—otherwise, you risk the bold leather overwhelming the space.
If you'd like to recreate this look exactly, the paint used was Montana Colors' Greyhound Brown, but you could also use spray paint specially formulated for painting vinyl (pleather) and fabric. I know from experience that it works great. And if any of you do start spray painting your furniture, be sure to tell us all about it! Meri leaves us with these wise words of advice that apply to projects large and small: "Wear a mask when you spray paint."
If you're unable to reach up into the corners, a tool or something like a ruler wrapped with a soft towel will help to send the fill up to round out any sunken edges. I used a cordless telephone. True story. Add filling until you can't add anymore, and then add more. Continue to add fill as you back your hand out of the cushion, making sure there is a decent amount down by the zipper -you don´t want what you stuffed up in the top of your cushion to all settle to the bottom.
