The Traditional Elmstead - Oak Leaf | Thyme & Bertioli x Lorfords Contemporary


Part of our design collaboration with Thyme & Bertioli.

A timeless blend of elegance, comfort, and tradition, this special edition of our Traditional Elmstead sofa is finished in Bertioli’s ‘Oak Leaf’ fabric made from 100% linen. 

Hand-crafted with a solid beech wood frame from FSC certified sources, seat and back are built from hand-tied coil springs with natural inner fillings and feather and down seat cushions to give the ultimate in luxurious support. 

With its restrained out-swept arms and gently sloping back, The Traditional Elmstead is quietly graceful, yet maintains a generous seat area, remaining as practical as it is beautiful. 

Shown here in Bertioli’s ‘Oak Leaf’ fabric made from 100% linen but the design can also be supplied using your own choice of fabric. All of our armchairs & sofas are available to manufacture in bespoke sizes. For custom quotes please contact us.

The Traditional Elmstead includes three scatter cushions as pictured, for support on this generously deep seat.

Leg finish options by Lorfords Contemporary

We build our sofas up from a hardwood beech frame, using traditional methods and materials. With hand-tied coil-sprung seat, arms and back. 

Where cushions are used, what makes them so comfortable is the high down content (50% down, 50% feather in seat, and 70% down, 30% feather in back). The down gives the cushions lovely softness, while the feathers provide loft and spring.

Where castors are used, they have been 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.

Where legs are used, they can be either tapered or turned and come in a variety of woods and finishes (see 'Leg Options' tab for more details). We use medium oak as standard.

All of our furniture 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 we will do our best to accommodate.

The price excludes fabric. If you need some help finding the perfect fabric, let us know. Fabric quantities for standard models in plain fabric are shown in the product description. For patterns, and bespoke sizes, get in touch and we can advise on fabric quantity.
