The Kingston Sofa
The Kingston Sofa is a design classic. There really is no way to improve upon the original ‘Ivor’ model made by Howard and Sons, and so we faithfully reproduce the sumptuous luxury that this timeless sofa brings. Built and finished just as the model was in the 19th Century with hand-tied coil springs and hand-sewn feather and down filled cushions to sink into; the fixed feather filled back cushion ensures optimum comfort. The nation’s favourite!

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.
