A closer look at Matilda

Matilda may be a petite armchair, but it’s deceptively comfortable. Sit down and you’ll sink in, yet it'll largely keep its form. Its pretty looks and versatile size also make it suited to fitting in almost anywhere – be it a bedroom, hallway or even bathroom.


We build our frames as pieces of furniture in their own right, combining timber and 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.


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 firmer foam so that you’ll never feel the frame, which is surrounded by feather, down and fibre. The back is padded with a much softer foam.

Comfort & proportions

It’s a lovely surprise to sit down in Matilda and discover that it’s so soft. The backrest is high enough to support the upper back and shoulders, but this is a chair that’s not too deep in the seat.

Shape & silhouette

Matilda’s shape is pleasingly fluid, from the way the oak legs kick out ever-so slightly, to the scroll in the arms and the fan shape of the back. It’s these structural traits that give Matilda its playful – and welcoming – personality.

Design detail

There are very few extra details on Matilda – no tufting, no stitches and no buttons. It’s a chair that’s all about a beautiful shape. So, we’ve highlighted it with just a few simple lines of piping.

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.

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

Sometimes colour between batches can vary ever-so-slightly. To be on the safe side, we’d advise buying pieces that are being used in the same room in one go.

Taking care of Matilda

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 and take away the packaging for recycling.

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.
