Brown Owl St. Bernard
An oversized and sumptuous armchair fit for a couple, man or beast!
This design was inspired by a victorian example we acquired from a grand Scottish country house in its original state, covered in tattered faded red silk damask.
The body of this particular showroom example is covered in ‘brown owl’ tenting canvas from HOWE at 36 Bourne Street which has been panelled using a broad course barbour’s twine sail stitch.
The seat cushion is filled with pure goose down, covered in an antique Afgan saddle bag which has a multicoloured embroidered edge in rich autumnal colours. Traditionally upholstered with individual sewn-in springs and hand stitched horsehair, this is one of our most exemplary pieces in terms of both the design and meticulous craftsmanship.
