I received an email from Eric Dalpiaz this week to tell me about his Modern DIY Sofa. I am glad he reached out, his modern sofa is really killer (ok I use that word too much) but really it is killer. On a scale of 1-10 on difficulty I would have to say this is probably a 8 or 9. Maybe we can get Eric to make up some instructions with measurements and details. And what a great idea for a coffee table, a straight up piece of concrete! If you have any questions for Eric post them here and I am sure he will be glad to answer them.

Here is my sofa that I built. Hardwood and MDF frame. Elastic straps for the seating. Foam on all sides of various thickness, different for seat, back, and arms. Knoll upholstery, stain resistant and ‘green’. I did all the work myself except for the upholstery, had to have someone do that for me. Breaks down into 6 pieces as you can see, bolts together to form one piece. Seats 4 comfortably.

Also the table in the pics is actually concrete. My parents had their driveway replaced, I had the contractor saw cut that piece out, I ground the underside in four spots and attached casters to make it ‘somewhat’ easier to move.

    This is a cool idea. From the pictuers above it seems easy to build. The photos have striked some good ideas in my mind. Actually this can even be scaled into a love seat or even a single seater one. The concrete table is a good idea too. I visited a party last week where that guy had used a “car tyre” as a base and round glass on top of that to call it a center table. Ideas like are so simple and make a huge difference. Thanks for sharing.

    Hey man that is awesome! Can you please post the instructions so that I may do it myself.

    Thanx man, you rock

    where did you get the furniture grade foam?

    4 years too late on this, but MDF is a bad idea. Plywood is way stronger. I’m going to do this sofa completely in plywood.
