The Scandinavian idea of 'hygge' seems to be everywhere at the moment, and we can see why. Hygge is often defined in terms of warm home comforts, and can be used to describe food, music, and good company. We like to think of it as simply revelling in life itself. Naturally, interior design and furniture play a huge role in creating hygge in the home.
Create a talking point for your home with a luxurious bespoke sofa, made to measure in Bristol. How about a bespoke corner sofa that fits just right, creating the perfect hugging space in your living room?
Nor does it need to be cold to enjoy hygge. Here at Archer + Co, comfort means being cuddled by your environment, whether chilling with an iced drink in the height of summer or keeping snug as the nights draw in and Autumn leaves start to fall.
Summer heatwaves are on the rise in the UK; every month seems to be the hottest on record. Brits, who aren't used to these soaring temperatures are increasingly taking siestas during the hottest part of the day. Half an hour after lunch is ideal, and a comfortable designer sofa could be the perfect place.
If you love letting the summer sun into your home or are seeking the perfect sofa for your conservatory, choose linen, cotton, or cool synthetics that you can warm up with winter blankets.
We offer a huge range of fabrics including organic cotton, 100% natural textiles, and recycled fibres so luscious you will hardly believe they are recycled.
Getting it exactly right isn't just about finding the perfect look, though. We produce sustainable, high-quality designer furniture as standard, but we also offer additional 'eco specifications' on request.
Let Archer + Co help you get it just right: call us today and begin planning the perfect sofa for your home!
Sustainability is the watchword when it comes to designing homes in the 21st Century - and most homes built today boast excellent insulation and energy-saving innovations to keep as much fossil fuel in the ground as possible.
It's far from the only way to ensure that your home is eco-friendly, however, because locally sourced materials which have a low environmental impact can also be used elsewhere in your house.
The key things to think about in terms of keeping your interior design eco-friendly are where your materials have come from, and what impact they have had. For instance, a reclaimed wooden kitchen counter made by a local craftsman will have a much smaller carbon footprint than one manufactured halfway around the world from an unsustainable source of wood.
And with so many options available in the UK today, it doesn't have to be tricky. High-street brands and small independent designers alike are waking up to the fact that consumers' priorities have shifted.
Reclaimed materials are a great way to keep things sustainable, but buying new can be eco-friendly too. Look for producers who use materials which are sourced locally and for natural materials which are easy to recycle or which break down naturally.
From environmentally friendly dye in our pillows, towels and soft-furnishings to wooden furniture created from local, sustainable sources, there are now umpteen ways to keep your interior design as eco-friendly as your house is.
If you're looking for a sofa with great eco-credentials, Archer + Co offer bespoke corner sofas and much more made from FSC certified timber in a range of British-made fabrics. It's not all about the environment, however, as at Archer + Co, we also offer beautiful design. Chief designer Ian Archer has previously designed beautiful sofas and armchairs for Ercol, John Lewis and other big names. Browse our website today.
If you've been searching for the perfect sofa for your home and have not yet had any luck finding it, perhaps it's time to consider buying a bespoke sofa? Here are four key reasons why a bespoke sofa could be the perfect solution for you.
One popular reason why people choose to go down the bespoke furniture route is due to size issues. If you have an unusual shaped room, an awkward corner, or want a sofa size that isn't standard, then having a bespoke sofa made to suit your exact needs is the perfect solution.
When you choose to have a bespoke sofa made, it can be tailored to all your requirements. Not only in terms of size and style, but also in colour – you don't have to be limited by what's available in stock, as you would when buying from other seating companies. So if you want to match fabrics or colours already in your interior design scheme, it's no problem.
Ordering a bespoke sofa also means the style of it can cater for your needs too. You're not limited to what a certain piece of furniture looks like and can have it designed to match your room and interior style. For example, if you love contemporary furniture and already have a collection of other pieces, you could have your sofa made in a style that compliments or matches your existing furniture. Or if you're fond of a particular traditional style, it could be made to reflect that also.
4. Environmentally friendly
Finally, when you order a bespoke sofa from Archer + Co, you get the added bonus of knowing that your furniture will be environmentally friendly. It will be made from FSC certified timber, upholstered in natural British-made fabrics and natural latex will be used for padding, instead of synthetic fibres.
Buying bespoke really can be the answer to your furniture buying woes, so why not contact Archer + Co to see how they can help you?
