Superb craftsmanship has gone hand in hand with British furniture for centuries, since the days of Thomas Chippendale.
Today, that skill and attention to detail continues in the finest firms – and it’s created an international appetite for UK-made furniture.
Meanwhile, the domestic market remains as passionate as ever about exquisite home-crafted quality and it’s easy to bring British furniture to the fore in all corners of your home.
For contemporary style and supreme comfort, the Fontella Chaise is perfect for modern living room spaces. Softly squashy with snug back cushions, it’s cosy and stylish.
The thin box arms and metal feet add a modern touch to the relaxed feel that blends in effortlessly with the geometric look. The sofa comes as a large or small chaise with right or left-hand turn to adapt to any room.
So what works particularly well with a plain, super-plush sofa? A statement armchair of course. The patterned Ider Accent Chair is handmade in the UK and conveys superb quality and design. Its deep foam-filled seat cushions and fibre-filled back provide an enjoyable place to relax, while its contemporary take on a traditional design will be admired for years to come.
Then, why not add a pop of colour and put your feet up on the fabulously fun and retro Cosenza footstool, from renowned British brand ercol?
Since it was founded in 1920, design and functionality have always been at the heart of ercol – and this footstool is no exception.
It features deep buttoning and oak legs in the underframe, while the cushions are reversible for even wear and comfort.
When it comes to resting your weary head at the end of the day, it’s important to invest in a deliciously cosy bed. The elegant Wiltshire High End Bed Frame from Barker and Stonehouse is hand-made in Britain and is the epitome of sophistication.
