The new collection was unveiled at Decorex International in September. Each piece is handmade to order by skilled craftsmen using time-trusted techniques for the signature Sofa Workshop quality, comfort and style. The furniture collection reworks original shapes, transforming them for a modern day customer. The results? Elegant, timeless designs that will bring a unique, stylish edge to your home.
“The original purpose of the V&A was to promote excellence in design and manufacturing, so we are delighted to be collaborating with Sofa Workshop who have a real focus on craftsmanship and supporting British industry. A great deal of consideration and skill has been applied to every piece, from the selection of the archive inspiration for the shapes and the fabrics, to the incredible expertise of the upholsterers in the workshop. The results are really very special.”
Lauren Sizeland – Head of Licensing, V&A
At Sofa Workshop we love storytelling, so it was wonderful to work with the research team at the V&A to delve into the archives and bring to life a collection of shapes and patterns that felt timeless but had a distinct modern relevance. For the fabrics, we endeavoured to stay as close to the original archive references as possible and it’s amazing to see people enjoying the designs once again, centuries after their initial conception. Each design is printed to order in Cheshire. From the geometric Kaleidoscope to the sheer romance of Love Birds, the collection promises to elevate any space.
“At the heart of this exclusive, archive-inspired collection is a passion and commitment to British design and craftsmanship. It’s an opportunity to create your own modern masterpiece at home and buy into a beautiful piece of British design”
Megan Holloway – Marketing Manager, Sofa Workshop
