Retriever Armchair in Poppy red leather
Available now, a Made by Howe Retriever armchair, covered in ‘Poppy’ natural Maroc leather from Howe at 36 Bourne Street, which will age beautifully, developing a wonderful gentle patina with time and use.
Luxurious and extremely comfortable, the faithful Retriever Armchair will always be a favourite, traditionally made using the highest standards of craftsmanship and quality of materials; the slim, beech frame has proper joints which won’t work loose, set on tapered ebonised Beech legs with HOWE brass castors. Within the multi-layered back as in the seat, woven webbing supports a series of hand-lashed springs, covered by long horsehair hand stitched into a linen scrim casing, over which is laid a down filled pad before the final covering, topped off with down and feather filled back and seat cushions.
Loyal to the finest examples of Victorian upholstery our Retriever Armchair has an independently sprung front edge making it incomparably comfortable and guaranteed to last a lifetime (or two!)
Also available to order in your desired wood finish and covered in your choice of fabric or leather.
