Adrian Pearsall wave lounge

 

This is the 2147-CL Chaise Lounge by Adrian Pearsall for Craft Associates.  You can see it in their original catalog here.  Those misshapen areas are due to the latex foam being dried out and compressed.

 

Here it is with new foam and fabric.

 

Need a closer look at those lumps?

Ahh.

 

The original fabric was a vibrant orange boucle that had faded a lot over time.  I liked the look of it a lot but in reality it was one of those early synthetics that didn’t have a very nice feel.

The new fabric is Knoll “Rivington”, a slubby weave in a gorgeous tomato red that tends to look more neon in photos than it actually is!   It’s a cotton/wool/synthetic blend that comes in some very beautiful colors.

But anyway, back to that old latex foam…

 

I did this outside because it was such a mess.  The dried-up foam crumbles to a fine dust that just gets everywhere.  The core of it was still soft but 70% of it was like very stale cornbread.

 

The finished chaise had a very inviting look to it and it sold within two days!
