Furniture retailer Jimmy Possum is recognised for their striking patchwork floorstock pieces, and recognised Australian furniture manufacturers such as Arthur G are also offering patchwork upholstery on their pieces. Done correctly, patchwork upholstery can look great, it can showcase stunning fabrics, appeal to a more bohemian salvaged interior scheme or be tonally complementing and a focal point of the interior.
It’s either a look you aim to achieve or a case of not having the budget for that new upholstery job and you’ve sewn together every piece of fabric you can find. What are your thoughts?

|A very tonal approach to patchwork upholstery,almost palatable?|
|Think this suits the interior to a tee! Don't miss that wire cloud up there either, stunning!|
|There is something about this one that I love, it may be the colour combination, the buttoning and the more applique look than patchwork, very cool!|
|Very pretty, too much for me, but I do love this upholstering of the timberwork, nice detail.|
|Looks like the most uncomfortable sofa in the world but a very classy approach to patchowrk upholstery dont you think?|
