Item Description

The rare, large and comfortable three-seater sofa with Aztec woollen kilim upholstery to the whole, the quality frame with a generously feather-filled back, seat and with scatter cushions, featuring rolled ‘Bolster’ arms, sitting on turned legs and brass castors and surviving from the fourth quarter of twentieth century England and from the Fulham Road, George Smith stable.

The condition is very good with only light expected wear commensurate with use. She is sound, safe and comfortable and ready to go.

This sofa was part of a three piece suite which resided at Longstow Hall & Gardens originally. Kilim upholstered furniture has been a popular bohemian covering for sofas since the nineteenth century. The likes of George Smith, and Liberty were always keen on upholstering using kilim. As George Smith quips on their website “George Smith has built a reputation for their expertise in upholstering with Kilim. The skill lies in assessing how best to place the Kilim design on the furniture, the cutting and pattern matching and the final application.” This gives a beautifully balanced finish. This example would have retailed new on the Fulham road at a cost of between £8,000 to £10,000, so it does provide good value.

Sumptuously comfortable.
