Witts Suites Foyer, Istanbul
Wills Furniture Manager, John Sharkey, recently travelled overseas to see the wonderful world of furniture. The trip took him to Turkey where he stayed at the Witt Suites in beautiful Istanbul. He said “My breakfast was distracted by admiring the leather sofas and velvet chairs. Each was in a typical European sleek design. The sofas were quite firm but suited the foyer interiors of the hotel. With twin needle stitching detail and polished timber arms and surround, they were most striking to view.The chairs with their padded reclining back were most comfortable and the delicate beech polished arms were just right for enjoying a Turkish coffee. A meal is more enjoyable with pure white table cloths.”
Auburn Wing Chair white damask
One of our favourite designs, the Auburn wing chair is pictured upholstered in white/beige damask fabric. Wills Furniture have been making this design for over 40 years. Paul Newham developed this design and we have never changed it. The feather and down seat cushion makes for very comfortable seating and the nickel plated studding detail and nickel plated castors create a classy detail finish. A truly classic design that can complement many fabric designs, from elegant damask to plain linen, this chair can be designed to suit any room setting. This design can also be viewed in our wholesale showroom at 6 Guest St Hawthorn.
We have created another fabulous sofa to add to our collection of high end residential furniture at Wills Furniture. The new creation is the Bradford sofa, made with an Australian hardwood Victorian Ash timber frame, all block joined and dowelled. This 2000mm long sofa is the epitome of luxuriant comfort and style with hand tied steel hourglass coil spring seats and soft feather/down seat cushions. The legs are hand polished and finished with antique, bronze plated, brass castors, whilst large, decorative brass stamped studding detail is a stunning feature along the base edge. This version of the sofa is upholstered in Warwick Fabrics Bravo Flax, but Designers and Decorators can select any fabric to suit their interior design as well as having the sofa customised to fit a particular space.
