I stopped by at a client’s home to look at the stain on her sofa that somehow grew larger and darker after being professionally stain treated. We were not sure what the stain was to begin with, but something happened. The owner of the stain treating company thinks some kind of dye transfer happened.
I have no idea, but one thing I do know is that this ‘aint good.
So we will be re-upholstering the sofa. Luckily the existing dye lot from the current fabric bolt seem to work with the fabric that’s on the sofa so we’ll be able to re-upholster just part of the sofa. (Designers can get cuttings of fabric samples and I always get one with each order but I wanted to check the fabrics in real life as fabrics can fade and this sofa sits in a window.)
