A closer look at Long Island

Every detail of Long Island, from its easy-going shape to the linen covers, makes it feel relaxed. The covers can be swapped around to ring in the changes with a new colour or texture each season or in a few years’ time. It’s also super soft – an armchair for settling in.

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. The seat cushion has a core of soft foam, which is a little firmer in the back for structure, and both are surrounded with feather, down and fibre. It’s a mix that gives Long Island its sink-into softness.

Comfort & proportions

The depth and width of Long Island is made for curling up in, and it leans back just enough for slouching. You’ll immediately sink into its cushions but their construction means you’ll never feel the frame underneath.

Shape & silhouette

Long Island’s shape continues the feeling of relaxation, with a fluid arc to its side profile and gentle scrolling on its arms. It also has a rolled, pillow-like back cushion rather than a boxed one for an inviting look that gently cushions the shoulders.

Design detail

The covers are precision-made to the frame, but with a degree of looseness so that you’re able to take them on and off. Together with the kick pleats, which are stitched in place at each corner, this means that no matter how much it’s used, the covers will never fall out of place.

Fabric notes

The textiles you can choose from for Long Island are all either pure linen or linen blends, because that’s the fabric that suits its loose covers best. There are over 30 of these in our library, and each one has its own character. Tone and texture can vary slightly from thread to thread, and expect to see the occasional slub. 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.

And, rest assured, all the feathers and down in our cushion fillings come from ethical, cruelty-free sources.

Taking care of Long Island

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 14 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.
