Brown-Owl St Bernard
An oversized and sumptuous armchair fit for a couple, man or beast!
This design was inspired from 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.
