Labrador Sofa

Friendly and welcoming, perhaps a little overweight, this well loved classic sofa is born out of the best stock, originally designed and made by Howard & Sons in the late 19th Century for the finest English houses, whose owners expected the ultimate in comfort. Remaining faithful, our ‘Labrador’ upholds those standards of craftsmanship and quality of materials; the beech frame has proper joints which won’t work loose, set on square tapered legs in a choice of mahogany, oak, hand painted beech or even fabric covered if you’d like. Within the multi-layered back as in the seat, woven webbing supports a series of hand lashed springs. These are covered by long horsehair stitched into a linen scrim casing over which is laid a down filled pad before the final covering. The arms are stuffed and stitched into shape with horsehair and the pocketed seat cushions filled with maximum down, minimum feather content, to really make the Labrador Sofa ‘Man’s Best Friend’!

Made to order in a fabric or leather of your choice, also available as an Armchair.

Craftsmanship and quality are absolutely central to everything we do at Howe London and we are passionate about promoting and preserving traditional skills, click here to read more.
