BOP Spotlight: Upholsterer

Anthony Cocco Jr. crafts upholstery using old-school methods and materials — horsehair and down-filled pillows, hand-tied springs — to achieve a seating comfort rarely found with today’s simplified methods. And if you’ve got special requirements — say you’re six-foot-seven and can’t find a comfortable sofa — Cocco will build you an extra-deep model, so your long limbs can rest easy. 529 Spring Garden Street, Philadelphia; 215-629-4100.
