Last year we introduced a headline sponsor to the Amara Interior Blog Awards for the very first time. Now offering the position for the second year we are delighted to announce that luxury furniture makers Sofa Workshop have taken the coveted top spot as headline sponsor for the 2017 campaign. The IBA Blog takes a look at this impressive brand renowned for their talented handcrafting techniques…
After spending more than 30 years handcrafting furniture – that’s a lot of sofas and chairs – Sofa Workshop is delighted to be supporting fresh new talent by collaborating with the Amara Interior Blogger Awards 2017 as the event’s headline sponsor.
Each Sofa Workshop piece is handmade in Britain using sustainably sourced materials, including kiln dried beech or birch for its chair and lounge frames, which are also designed from the ground up so all of the components are traced. They know exactly what’s in their sofas, which is why they’re guaranteed for up to 25 years! Whether you’re after a classic chaise, a Scandinavian inspired chair or a family favourite corner sofa, every Sofa Workshop piece of furniture can be customised to your individual style and taste, plus you and your family’s height, width and every whim! As well as their classics, they also create seasonal collections in line with interior trends.
They recently collaborated with Red magazine and its associate editor Pip McCormac to design the Lexington – a modern take on a vintage shape with generous proportions and sleek, sloping arms. As always, you can choose a print or pattern fabric – there are thousands in their library, but here they’ve paired Lexington with the Dusky Pacific velvet. Another popular choice this year has been the Eden – a mid-century shape reworked for modern living with deep, low maintenance foam seats and super comfy, squishy feather-back cushions. Stylish comfort is always top of their wish list!
When it comes to fabric, the brand’s sofas make the ideal blank canvas, which is why they also proudly work with the best of British craftsmanship to showcase brand new and well-loved prints from Flock, William Morris and Moon wool to name but a few.
