It's a hard to describe type of material, but it looks very similar to this
. I guess it's micro-suede, and it's more of a love-seat but with sharp armrests...other than that this pic is pretty accurate. (This pic also somewhat descriptive
Very classy, I know (1997 called and they want their furniture back). Anyway, a dog chewed a hole in it about 3 years ago (about the size of a bread plate in the upper corner of the seat part, stuffing visible through the gap) and I used to cover the entire bottom half with a piece of cloth but it would be cool if I could either:
1. patch the hole with the same material
2. patch the hole with a totally different but cool material or
3. attach some kind of nifty patterned cloth to the entire seat bit to make it look slightly purposeful (I don't mind it looking Frankensteinian).
Given the material and shape a slipcover is not
really a favorite option.
Some instructions or links to how exactly one patches this kind of material would be very super helpful as I can't find much on google about the process and I can't afford no upholsterer.
TIA for helping me move slowly into not living in a crackhouse.
