A closer look at Olivia

The Olivia armchair feels very classic, very English and very comfortable. It’s luxuriously proportioned, and a generously stuffed feather and down cushion hides inside the backrest’s upholstery, making it deceptively soft. Olivia also combines traditional details like pleated arms and turned legs with a simple and timeless silhouette.

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

In Olivia’s back and base are serpentine springs. The seat cushion has a core of firmer foam so that you’ll never feel the frame, which is then surrounded by feather, down and fibre. In its back hides a cushion that’s also made of feather, down and fibre, as well as a softer foam.

Comfort & proportions

This chair slopes back, is quite deep and has mounded seat cushions, so knees sit snugly against it. Olivia also has a backrest that’s high enough to rest your head on.

Shape & silhouette

Olivia is plump yet tailored, with a neat back and a square-shaped front frame. The arms are petite, low down and set back from the front edge, which maximises the internal seat space.

Design detail

The seat cushion fits neatly underneath the hidden padding in the backrest. If you take it off to plump, a little advice when slipping it back in is to align the front of the cushion with the frame and lean against, pushing it under without losing any loftiness.

Olivia

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.

Taking care of Olivia

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.
