This photo was taken before I was born, those are my two brothers and my sister who is about 18 months older than I am. My grandmother is on the sofa.
I remember that Sofa. It was a dark green and had a deeply textured fabric. I remember the feel of the texture of the textile. I don't often think of textures, but that one stands out, it was both stiff and soft at the same time. The replacement had a pleated brown wool fabric, with a Walnut frame across the top at the back, across the bottom and caps on the arms, wood legs. I remember the brown wool being soft to the touch. She bought furniture to last, the brown wool one my father had in his den in the house in Florida for years after my grandmother died, until my mother convinced him she needed the space for a third desk.
What textures to you remember from your youth?
