Elmstead Armchair

Estimated Production Time6-7 weeks


This is twist on our ever popular Elmstead model which we pared down into a comfortable and classic armchair. A nod to a traditional Regency style, but with contemporary reworking, the clean, curving lines of the frame looks equally at home in modern and traditional interiors. We build our Elmstead armchair up from a hardwood beech frame, using only traditional methods and materials. With a hand-tied coil-sprung seat, there is no foam used in the build up. What makes this armchair so comfortable is the high down content in the seat cushion (50% down, 50% feather). The down gives the cushions lovely softness, while the feathers provide loft and spring. The castors are individually hand-cast by traditional English metal crafters to a very high standard and a variety of finishes can be achieved. We use the antique brass finish as standard. The legs can be either tapered or turned and come in a variety of woods and finishes. Shown here as a tapered leg in light oak. The Elmstead armchair, like all of our models, can be made completely bespoke. We want this to be your perfect armchair, so if you want it a bit bigger or smaller, softer or firmer, or anything else just ask and we will do our best to accommodate. The price excludes fabric. If you need some help finding the perfect fabric, let us know. It takes approximately 7 metres in a plain fabric to cover a standard Elmstead armchair. For patterns, and bespoke sizes, get in touch and we can advise on fabric quantity.
