Down Back Elmstead Sofa

Estimated Production Time6-7 weeks

About

This sofa is a twist on our ever popular Elmstead model. This version has an integral back cushion, or “down back”, giving it a plumper silhouette with more support. The seat cushions tuck neatly under the back cushions. Like the original, this is an elegant sofa of timeless design. A nod to a traditional Regency style sofa, but with contemporary reworking, the clean, curving lines of the frame look equally at home in modern and traditional interiors. We build our Elmstead 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 the down back Elmstead so comfortable is the high down content in both seat (50% down, 50% feather) and back cushions (70% down, 30% 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. We use medium oak legs as our standard finish. The down back Elmstead, like all of our sofas, can be made completely bespoke. We want this to be your perfect sofa, 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 21 metres in a plain fabric to cover a standard down back Elmstead. For patterns, and bespoke sizes, get in touch and we can advise on fabric quantity.
