A closer look at Arthur

Arthur is a fabric lover’s footstool. Generously sized with a firm top, it’s an alternative to a coffee table that adds another textile to the room. Crisp tailoring, a refined profile and a little soft luxury from the tufting means that it suits all fabrics, from neutral to bold.

Frame & filling

We build our frames using solid timber and proper jointing, with webbing and serpentine springs to provide support. Each footstool is designed with a specific filling ratio to best suit its character. In Arthur, we’ve used two densities of foam for softness and structure.

Form & function

Arthur’s as much about hands on as feet on; its height encourages you to sit on the floor and lean in, perhaps with a board game perched on top. Both its sizes are also roomy enough to become a place to sit, whether it’s underneath a window, at the foot of a bed or in a hallway.

Design detail

This is a footstool that’s full of detail – from the stitching and buttons, to the piping around its middle and the turned oak legs with Antique Brass castors. But it’s all understated, adding texture without detracting from the textile.

Fabric notes

The textiles in our fabric library range from pure linen to rich velvet and wool, and each one has its own character. Tone and texture can vary slightly from thread to thread, and expect to see the occasional slub in our linens and pile movement in our velvets. We’ve written an article about the personality behind each of our fabrics so that you can figure out which one best suits your home.

If you’re ordering Arthur in one of our patterned textiles, we’ll take away the stitching detail on top so it doesn’t appear too busy. And if you’ve selected a checked wool we’ll make sure that the buttons sit at the point where two lines meet.

Taking care of Arthur

We’ve put together this guide on taking care of your upholstered pieces so that they stay looking as beautiful as the day you first brought them home.

We take our delivery service seriously. Neptune transport, Neptune people, Neptune service.

Our white glove service means you’ll have a two-man delivery team. That means no heavy lifting on your part is needed. They’ll take it to your desired spot, assemble it for you, take away the packaging for recycling, and show you how to use it.

No-quibble returns

We believe that returns should be easy, that’s why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. If you decide on the day that it’s not for you then our delivery team can take it away for you there and then, free of charge.

But if you’d rather mull things over, you have 28 days to make up your mind. We do charge a pick-up fee of £29.95 here though, because we’ll need to send our delivery team back out to your address for collection.

New, just opened. And coming very soon...

Not too long ago, a guest at one of our stores described it as being 'extraordinary'. It's the word that we feel best describes them – the look, the feel, the experience. Some are in city-centre locations, some are a little drive out, but they're all designed to feel like a real home, rather than a store.
