Vintage style gets better as the years go on, ageing like a fine wine. It can add a characterful flourish to any room – and that’s why we’ve picked out some of our favourite vintage-style sofas from across the range. Why does vintage reign supreme? It’s effortlessly immune to the whims of trends and fashion, forever cool. It could be a wingback armchair in the living room or an American diner-style Smeg fridge in the kitchen – instantly, you have a timeless centrepiece.
Here are our favourite vintage-style sofas that could take your living room well into the future – by having a nod to the past.
1. The Offbeat Chesterfield
An extraordinary take on a Chesterfield sofa, the soft scalloped edges of this sofa and the rolls and curves of the design, mean that this elegant piece – although a contemporary take on an iconic style – would not look out of place in a classic novel.
Opt for the grand split sofa option, giving you extra room to stretch out and while away the hours reading.
2. The Persia
The perfect combination of comfort, luxury and sophistication, the Persia is a breathtaking statement sofa.
With large, cushioned butterfly arms, this sofa is discreet and grand all at once. Expertly handcrafted, the detailed studding and elegant, hand-turned wooden feet give the Persia a vintage feel.
3. The Gabrielle
For the ultimate vintage feel, style your room with this chaise longue from our Gabrielle range. Soft velvet fabric finished with optional metallic trim and antique style buttons, the intricate details of the Gabrielle and the exquisite finish add to the vintage vibe.
Subtle shades or rich jewel tones, even if this chaise is the only vintage style piece in your room, you’ll be sure to find a colour that matches your decor.
4. The Islington
Vintage doesn’t mean grand, there’s a sofa style to suit this look for all sizes of rooms. The Islington is a big on seating space, despite its compact design and with the pintuck detailing across the back cushions and, the high set legs of this range, the vintage feel is accentuated in colours such as Sleek Green or Sleek Mustard.
5. The Midsummer
This classical style sofa with scrolled arms is handcrafted from deep pile velvet fabric in sumptuous shades making this a real centrepiece in your vintage style room. The details are all there – pintucked arms, metallic and floral accents – as well as the comfort that you would expect from a sofa that looks as inviting as this.
6. The Perle
Some sofas are made to be simple and discreet – not the Perle.
Introduced in 2019, the velvet-finished, handcrafted Perle makes for a wonderful statement piece in a home with colourful character. Aside from its opulent jewel tones, this gently curvaceous sofa stands out with its beautiful, sweeping back.
Looking like something you’d find on the film set of the Moulin Rouge, the Perle is a sofa for a home that centres around retro chic.
