As we will be in the market for a new sofa soon, changing our brown leather suite for a more contemporary-styled fabric sofa and armchair, I’m studying the market studiously and have been impressed by the designs and prices at Arlo & Jacob.
Specialising in affordable and handmade quality furniture and using British craftsmanship, Arlo & Jacob sofas are handcrafted with hardwood frames that have a lifetime guarantee. Comfort and durability are key, but you also have the luxury of being able to choose from 120 fabrics and a range of gorgeous scatter cushions, with free fabric samples. If you are in the London area, they also have a fabulous and welcoming showroom that you can visit too, in Fulham.
Having browsed their collections online, I was particularly smitten with the elegant design of the The Knightley (shown above) – with low arms and a heart shaped back it is very appealing and I love that dark grey fabric and the sumptuously deep cushions. The turned wooden feet are just a lovely finishing touch.
I also liked the interior design infographic that Arlo & Jacob shared with me – it’s a little whirlwind tour of the interior design styles that are popular in some of the most stylish cities of the world. I thought you might like it too!
