This is a sofa that I have had made recently, an exact copy of a mid 18th century one. This is not something that I usually do, but when the original was briefly in the shop so many people loved it that I decided to have a go. The frame was made as an exact copy even the decoration on the legs was hand-carved. The upholstery was also done in the traditional way, by 7Upholstery in Redchurch Street. I put the mid 20th century African (Mali?), textile on it in the shop by accident, but really liked the combination so I left it there, somehow it brings out the modernity of those sweeping arms.
