We are are launching the new Stix sofa for Autumn/Winter 2015.  Designed by Ian Archer and made by Sitting Firm, this new sofa celebrates the timeless appeal of bentwood.

The hand-made oak back that curves down to form the arms and feet in one continuous line is both elegant and contemporary. The hand-turned oak staves that support the back are a beautiful feature making this sofa demand to be positioned in the centre of the room where it can be appreciated from all angles.

Ian Archer says: “I have been working in collaboration with British makers using traditional steam bending and spindle moulding techniques and I wanted to adapt these craft methods into a design suitable for contemporary living. Inspired by Windsor chairs, I exaggerated the scale of the steam bent back and arms to give the elongated sweep of wood that holds the delicate spindles. This gives a cage-like structure which embraces the soft cushions giving it a luxurious feel."


Stix comes with plump feather wrapped seat cushions and feather and down back cushions, making it extremely comfortable, perfect for curling up in at any time of day.

Size: Large: H210cm X D100 cm X H80cm, Medium: 170cm X 100cm X 80cm and Snuggler: 110cm X 100cm X 80cm
