Merrimack AP Sofa.jpg


While looking for inspiration for furniture for my Merrimack’s living room, I found and fell head over heels in love with an Adrian Pearsall boomerang sofa.  It’s obviously not something I could ever afford in real life, but I had to try to make it in miniature.  I used half-rounds from Earth and Tree, bass wood, lovely walnut veneer from Cascade Miniatures, craft foam and mat board, as well as casters from Minimum World.  I’ve now seen variants on this sofa that don’t have casters, but this is a big piece of furniture (it would be 9 feet long in real life)--casters will make it so much easier for my homeowners to move.  My original inspiration sofa had obviously been reupholstered.  The tight, neutral upholstery seemed more modern than mid-century, so I did a bit more looking and found this and this.  I decided I liked the button tufting, so I used One-Inch Minis’ fabulous button tutorial to create the buttons.  I intentionally went with fairly large buttons.  I actually started smaller, but didn’t like them as much.  And, yes, Adrian Pearsall seems to put a button right on the seam of all his tufted, angled sofas.
