Knoxville, Tennessee – There’s a sofa that hasn’t been used in more than 10 years, but a local furniture store has figured out a way to transform it into a new home.
The sofa is called the “Knoxville Rooftop Couch”, and its owner is an artist named Daniel Miller.
His inspiration for the design came from his grandfather who was a furniture designer.
Miller was inspired by a sofa he saw in a local garage that had a hole in the back, and he decided to create something similar.
The couch is a small but sturdy structure made of wood that sits on the ground and folds up when the sun comes up.
The design is not for everyone.
Miller told Al Jazeera: “I don’t think the design is very elegant, but I do think the materials are pretty sturdy.
It’s very durable.”
I’ve never seen a sofa with a hole that big before.
Miller is not alone in his love of old furniture.
“People are going crazy for these old things, so we wanted to find a way that we could turn them into something that would make them feel like they were living in the 60s,” Miller said.
The original sofa sits on a bench next to a wood table that’s also been reclaimed from the garage.
There are four windows on the back of the sofa.
When the sun rises, the windows open to reveal a view of the Tennessee River.
The two windows on each side of the lounge are awnings and were designed by Miller himself.
A wooden board sits on top of the window frames, so the sun will get through when it hits the front.
“It’s got this beautiful vintage look,” Miller told CNN.
“I’ve never had a sofa like this, and it’s a good reason to have one.”
The sofa has two small windows on either side of it that are covered with fabric.
The fabric is a blend of old wood, recycled polyester, and recycled acrylic.
“We’re looking at it as a way of creating a modern-day outdoor living room,” Miller added.
“A lot of people look at that old sofa and think, ‘What is that?’
I wanted to make something that feels like it was designed by a contemporary architect.” “
But it’s not.
I wanted to make something that feels like it was designed by a contemporary architect.”
The chair has a backrest and a side table.
It is made of three pieces of reclaimed wood, which is a mixture of oak, pine, and cypress.
The backrest is made from a large piece of reclaimed oak, which was also reused in the home of architect Richard Meier.
Miller said the design also features a “lazy” fireplace that has a metal door that opens to a full-length dining table.
The furniture is made using reclaimed acrylic from a local craft store, which also provides the fabric.
A small window sits above the dining table and provides a view into the patio area.
The front door has a hole drilled into it that allows a breeze to pass through the fabric and into the back room.
“Our goal is to keep the design simple and to make it something that you can enjoy every day,” Miller explained.
“If you love it, then it’s good.
If you don’t, then you have to find something else.”
The entire design process took four months to complete, with the furniture coming from a scrapyard in rural Alabama.
“The house itself is built like this to accommodate all the furniture, and the kitchen is built to accommodate the chairs,” Miller explains.
“So, it was very important to have the front and back doors that are connected in such a way where the wood can be bent in two directions to get the same amount of air.”
The front and rear doors are connected by a fabric loop that extends from the back door to the dining room.
The lounge is a two-story structure with a large open-plan living area and dining room area.
“There’s nothing wrong with a room that is very small, and there’s nothing right with a space that is big,” Miller noted.
“You have to balance it out with the other pieces.”
He also added that the sofa was built to be functional.
“One of the things that really excited me was the design of the seat,” Miller remarked.
“When you sit down, you’re not thinking about what’s in front of you.
When you sit, you think about what is behind you.”
Miller and his wife Sarah were inspired to make the sofa for a living room project after they visited a scrap yard in Alabama.
The couple’s first reaction was disbelief that they were actually building a sofa.
We had some of the best furniture people in the country on the project, and we had a great conversation about the best things that we can do to keep this space comfortable and
