Recently comissioned, custom designed, crafted and finished – a new miniature sofa with hidden features.

The back of the settee is cut-out so that the arm of a puppeteer can easily fit through it.

The wooden structure is lined with upholstery foam and wadding and then covered in Dupioni silk.

The cut-out is covered by a strip of silk with an elasticated edge, and by two optional sections attached via magnets (not shown).

The seating  area is about 40cm wide, to match a decent sized glove puppet – or two.

This sofa was shipped to Germany a few days ago.
