Airstream Life & Travels (@mavistheairstream)

Swipe for a little tour of the new and improved living area! We've struggled with the living space in here since the start. We first had it in the front of the trailer in the original floorplan configuration. When we did away with the two twin beds and built a full-sized bed in the front, the sofa went to the back. I bought a pretty little olive green velvet daybed cushion from Urban Outfitters and thought that would be an easy solution rather than having to make something from scratch. It was a no-go. The cushion deflated to a pancake after 3 months and getting comfortable on a sofa with a curved wall behind it just wasn't possible. My talented mom came up with this solution for the sofa. We bought a twin sized memory foam mattress and wrapped it in sofa batting to give the edges a curved, plush appearance. The back of the sofa is a piece of rigid foam also wrapped in the same batting with a 1/2" thick piece of birch plywood on the back for structure. The folks at @southernsmokecigars had a nifty solution they shared with us for angling the sofa back. They cut triangular pieces of wood, fastenened to the skin and then affixed the sofa back to the wood with heavy duty Velcro. We did a similar version of this but instead with angled metal since my dad is a metal fabrication wizard. I'll be sharing more details of it on our blog soon. The sofa fabric is from Fabric & Fringe Warehouse in Marietta, Georgia. They do offer shipping but I don't have any info on the designer of the fabric. It was the only one like it though. And I still have one more finishing touch -- @dropitmod desert llama wallpaper for the rear wall. πŸ‘Œ

Oh and those snuggly (vegan!) slippers are by @freewaters_footwear - an awesome company that supports clean drinking water projects around the world. I always love finding companies that are doing things to better our planet. βœŒπŸŒπŸ’§
