Interior & exterior refit aboard a Friendship 40.
What is unique or complex about the project?
The owner of this beautiful Friendship 40 wanted all “soft goods” aboard the boat replaced. A classic New England navy & wheat color scheme was selected for both the interior and exterior and we went to work designing & fabricating! The cockpit cushions, upholstered in Outdoor Ultraleather, were thoughtfully designed; the seat cushions are box style with welt, practical as they will be stepped on as one moves about the boat, and we had fun detailing the back rest cushions in a channel quilted design with welt (a first for a Friendship!) We won’t overlook the challenges to fabricate the curved aft settee, or securing the back cushions with a system of tie down straps with snaps. Throw pillows in a navy/wheat stripe pattern by LULU DK & trimmed out in a twisted lip cord bring a fun pop of color to this comfy seating area. Down below we had fun with fabric, mixing patterns and textures. The two settees feature seat cushions in Ultraleather and throw pillows in different prints from the Duralee Pavillion collection. Atop a new daybed mattress sits custom linens including sheets, a quilted bedspread (in a fun nautical print) and a lot of pillows! These items were fabricated in outdoor fabrics from Kravet Soleil, Duralee Pavillion & Greenhouse Fabrics. No detail was overlooked; we also made a mast cover in Ultraleather to coordinate with the upholstery, and outfit the day head as well!
