These very beautiful cloth-draped sofas Max Zambelli teach an essential lesson: ordinary raw materials, artfully arranged, can easily outdo “done”. Zambelli has tucked and smoothed in just the right places, leaving the rest to fall as it may.
It’s a chic play on drop cloth covered sofas.
Of course, it has much to do with the shape of the sofa AND how wide a piece of fabric you are using. For really wide swathes, our favorite two solutions:
-cotton canvas painter’s drop clothes that come in white or natural (we find the best selection at paint stores like Janovic Plaza OR
-linen flat sheets, which can go up to California King, a hefty 125-x-118-inches without seams. We recommend Rough Linen’s offerings (our comparison shopping show them to be a good value).
