CREATE YOUR OWN 1970s INTERIORS – ON A BUDGET!

Carpeted Couches (with Cushions!)

I have never had the pleasure to run into a seating platform – however, I do love sitting on carpeted floors! (Not the same, I know.) However, I suppose some people might find the sensation of a carpeted level uncomfortable. For those people, there are cushions.

How-To

You will need to plan for your built-in couches before carpeting (or re-carpeting) a room. First, build a base for your couch(es) out of plywood. Then, simply have your carpet installed up and around these bases. Afterwards, add store-bought or hand-made cushions or large pillows! Done!
