Striped Carpet Greyhound Sofa
A unique Greyhound sofa traditionally upholstered, the arms and back in a wonderful striped Turkish flatweave and seat cushion in an antique Caucasian flatweave carpet.
Faithful to a late 18th century English design, the beech structure has spoke-shaved pitch pine arms and oak legs set on HOWE brass cup castors.
Our frame-maker pays every respect to the use of pegged mortise and tenon, and dovetailed stretcher joints to achieve remarkable strength in such a slender and lightweight frame, which is the essence of 18th century English furniture.
“As well as the evident level of hand built craftsmanship and use of authentic natural materials, the Greyhound is not only incredibly sleek and stylish but surprisingly comfortable for an 18th Century settee” CH
