Central to the appeal of this London sofa style is the emphasis placed on human comfort achieved through significant padding and stuffing around the frame or body of the sofa design. In many cases, traditional materials such as feather and down are used with a protective foam wrapping to ensure that the sofa maintains its shape with minimal maintenance required. As with many sofas designed in London during this period, innovative new stitching and stuffing techniques were required to achieve this result, which have since become standard practice within the upholstery profession.
Colors that are great for this time of year include pale and rose pinks, baby blues, light greens, yellows and corals. All of these are representative of the colors we find outside in nature at this time of the year, and therefore look fantastic on furniture. Although blocks of color in these shades can look great, there is also the choice to select very subtle prints and designs, such as a upholstery fabric which features its colors in a 'watercolor' style print rather than a regular plain color. This has the appearance that the color has been painted on a blank canvas and can look stunning and very summery indeed.
It's a good idea to check with the upholstery fabric supplier to identify if the material they supply is fade resistant. Over time sun is guaranteed to shine into the space, catching the fabric and we all know how damaging the sun rays can be. There is nothing worse than one side of the furniture item losing its colour, while the other side stays brilliant and bright. Fade resistance can be a major benefit and definitely something that should be taken into consideration.
One of the leading sofa styles developed in London during this period was the Howard Sofa which departed from the rigid, formal Chesterfields of the time by using light modern fabrics and incorporating contemporary features to create a look that was immediately more comfortable, open and casual. Instantly popular with the British public from its inception, the Howard Sofa remains the UK's best-selling luxury sofa design and is widely used in a range of informal settings such as home living rooms and conservatories.
