As much as I can appreciate riempie within the context of South African design, it’s not a style that I’m naturally drawn to, but the combination of the wonderful solid wood frame, the large comfy cushions, and the mass of woven riempie seem to work really well on this couch, plus I’ve always liked the idea of couches on great big balconies, which is where I see this piece going. That being said, in the right home, it would work just as well indoors.
There’s some wear to the wood (a ring mark and some scratches), and the riempie is a bit scruffy in places, but we’ve given the wood a new coat of varnish, and overall the condition isn’t bad at all. And while there is a bit of wear and tear, the structure is still nice and solid, and the new upholstery and fresh varnish mean it’s a pretty handsome piece.
The perfect spot to read your book or put your feet up (mimosa in hand) at the end of a lazy summer’s day!
