A super duper, enormous, XXXL, larger-than-life version of our Tamburlaine Sofa. Which certainly pushed us to our limits (and workshop space) when first commissioned, but there’s no challenge too big. The only slight issue being finding a room large enough to capture its grandeur and scale!
Generous and deep with a tall back, fine arms, and optional bolster dividers for comfort and to break up the expanse if you like. The Giant Vaudeville Sofa is completely hand-crafted, utilising the strength of beech for the frame, with spoke shaved pitch pine arms on oak or mahogany legs, with or without brass cup castors. The squab style seat cushion can be stuffed with either horsehair or pocketed down and feather and is supported on a webbed platform that we have supplemented with short springs to add softness to the seat. Our frame maker pays every respect to the use of pegged ‘mortise & tenon’ joints and ‘dovetailed’ stretchers to achieve remarkable strength in such a slender, lightweight frame, true to the tradition 18th Century English furniture.
Made to order in your desired length and covered in your choice of fabric or leather, and we will consider your house access and design accordingly.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.
