Custom Designed Sofa For Penelope Design Built The Traditional Way

Custom Designed Sofa

Custom Designed Sofa

This gorgeous, custom designed, modular sofa (pictured above) was made for a client of  Penny Goodman of Penelope Design. The sofa was made to a specific size to fit the room as well as complementing the sleek ottoman. After measuring the room Wills Furniture designers created this design at 2800 x 1800mm with square arms and a return daybed. It not only fits the room but made it through the front door at the Glen Iris residence! Luxuriant comfort is ensured with fully hand tied coil sprung seat with feather wrapped foam seat cushions and feather/fibre back cushions. Upholstered in a lush velvet Aspen, in the colour Sterling from Zepel Fabrics.

Feather Wrap Cushioning

Feather Wrap Cushioning

Pictured, the feather wrap cushion technique used in this sofa, has a multi-layer of high density foam and a soft, slow release foam called “memory foam. This is encased in a channelled doona cover of duck feathers and holofil fibre. This combination creates a luxurious comfort level, whilst allowing the cushion to maintain its structure to eliminate “fluffing up”. The amount of foam and feathers can be varied to accommodate individual requirements.

Sprung Seat Technique

Sprung Seat Technique

Wills Furniture’s factory manager Matt Howe (pictured) showing how to tie off a sprung seat the traditional way. Working on one of Wills Furniture popular designs, the Madrid chair, Matt demonstrates the traditional method used, with jute webbing and 8 inch steel coil springs all hand tied off with button twine. Not many furniture manufacturers still use this method with so much cheap “throw away” furniture on the market today. Our clients expect quality furniture that lasts, so we build the traditional way to deliver the best furniture.
