Badosa makes sofas, chairs, and anything else you need upholstered. He makes them quickly, at an acceptable level of quality (he is not Roche Bobois – but he doesn’t pretend to be either). I can personally recommend his work, because I’m sitting on it right now while typing this post.
See that rather ugly colored sofa below? That’s my sofa – only I changed the color and the shape of the back cushions. I would also recommend getting the trim all the way around the back cushions (as shown it’s only on the top and sides – having it on the bottom as well looks more finished).
Badosa is one of the smaller sofa stores on Hertzl street in Tel Aviv (69 Hertzl to be exact). He can make things in any shape and has all of the same fabrics that the other stores carry.
You can also choose from a selection of specialty fabrics. Perfect for making a statement in a space.
I saw a lot of chintz while walking on Hertzl last week. There’s a definite trend in that direction – also for more traditional shapes, like this armchair and footstool.
After 2 years the only complaint I have about our sofas are the legs. The Boys have bashed them a few times and the stain has come off where they have been hit. This is not a major complaint.
Did I mention that I got them in 3 days? Reliable, honest, and fast – definitely worth a look if you need some new sofas. And if you go in – tell him the American from Zichron says ‘Hi’.
