A closer look at Amelia

Amelia is an armchair that’s full of extra details and sumptuous texture: tufting and stitching in the fabric; a back that’s curved inside and out; and arms that sweep down, framed by smart piping. And despite its petite size, it retains all the comfort of a larger chair.

Frame

We build our frames as pieces of furniture in their own right, using solid timber, proper jointing and never any cardboard. And we’ve secured the back legs into the frame with finger joints, so they promise strength and stability.

Learn more about our frames.

Filling

Support and a little bounce come from the serpentine springs in the base and elastic webbing in the back. And although Amelia doesn’t have any cushions, we’ve used a medium density foam and fibre wadding to soften it slightly and ensure you’ll never feel the frame beneath.

Comfort & proportions

Amelia has a generous seat space for an occasional chair, which supports the knees and encourages you to lean back. The curve in the frame gives it an inviting, wraparound feeling that hugs the shoulders.

Shape & silhouette

The arms sweep down from the back, creating a shape that gives Amelia a pleasing symmetry when in pairs. In contrast to its curves, the oak legs are straight and unfussy, and the seat has a squared front.

Design detail

Tufts in the fabric and diamond stitching give Amelia a luxurious, pocketed effect. This traditional detail is offset by very fine piping inside and out, which highlights the curves and adds crisp definition.

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 Amelia in one of our patterned wools or linens, we’ll pare-back the stitching and the number of pulls so it doesn’t appear too busy. And, in checked fabrics, the pulls will be placed at the point where two lines meet.

Taking care of Amelia

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.
