In September we officially launch this new sofa design at 100% Design. A modern sofa based on an old classic design with a contemporary twist. It is unique as it is made as a campaign sofa so can fit into the most awkward spaces as it is meant to be taken apart – perfect for apartment blocks and old houses with narrow doorways and staircases. Each one is hand made so size isn’t an issue as they are always made to order. We will also be offering it as a sofa bed in standard sizes. Available in linen to start and we will then introduce selected wools and velvets to the collection. Although we officially launch in September they are already available and take 8-12 weeks to deliver.
Sizes priced are standard but please just ask for variations

The sofa photographed above is the original sofa designed for an old French townhouse with a very steep narrow staircase. The house had been in the same family since it had been built until recently and the new owners want to be mindful of this history. The linen is from vintage sheets found in the house that belonged to the original family. Mixing the new chapter in the house’s history with the lives lived there before is a huge part of what we do at Harp Cottage Studios. Always mindful of what a building is telling you. Most of the time the trick is to just let the house breathe. To create an elegant grand sofa for this elegant grand townhouse just flows. The idea of the campaign sofa is also a way of using old techniques in a modern way. All of th furniture we found in the house was capable of being taken apart and moved. They most often had special little nuts that clasped each piece together. One of the wooden day beds found in the house even had a special tool just for turning these special bolts. True craftsmanship. Hence the idea for a campaign sofa was born.
We hope you enjoy this design as much as we do. The perfect piece to snuggle away from the world in an elegant and comfortable manner.
