Real Upholstered Millennium Falcon Couch and Holochess Table

Hey y'all,
I run a scenic shop in Richmond, VA and I actually joined the forum to post this piece we were commissioned to build by a private client.

He wanted a comfortable version of the Millenium Falcon couch along with the Holochess Table for his Star Wars Memorabilia Room. The design criteria were:
  • It needed to feel finished and clean since it was going in his house (not necessarily new like the one seen in the Solo movies but also not as dirty and gritty as the original trilogy.)
  • The lights needed to function
  • It needed to be comfortable
  • It had to be broken up into sections to be installed on the third floor of his house!
  • It could also only be a partial section of the actual couch due to space considerations.
We worked closely with an upholster to handle the cushions, but otherwise our company built everything else.
Let me know if you have an questions!

Your collection of detailed shots and information were very helpful, even when we did things a completely different way!

As an upholsterer myself, the upholstery on that looks extremely well done! I love the whole thing, awesome job.

Thanks! It was a process. We ended up CNCing all the individual cushions out of 1/2" plywood and then our upholsterer sheathed them in 1" foam and wrapped them in fabric. Then each panel was attached from the back.
We thought we'd be able to wrap each cushion as one piece, but it turned out every piece had to have a top piece of fabric and an edge band.
