A closer look at Charles

Charles is a traditional sofa – a style that wouldn’t be out of place in an English country house – but its wealth of detail and architectural, castellated shape make it completely unique. It also has inviting pillowed arms, high sides and a slight recline under the seat.


Support and a little bounce come from the serpentine springs in the base and elastic webbing in the back. The cushions have a core of firmer foam so that you’ll never feel the frame beneath, which is then surrounded by feather, down and fibre. It’s a mix that gives Charles its balance of structure and softness.

Comfort & proportions

Charles is a good balance between being deep enough to slouch (should you want to), but shallow enough for sitting with feet comfortably on the floor. Shoulders are supported gently by the backrest, while knees are hugged by the firm seat.

Shape & silhouette

There are six internal cushions (two each for the back and seat, and another two for the sides) and pillow-like stuffing on the inside of the arms. So, while the outside structure is neat, inside it’s much cosier.

Design detail

The skirt is lined with webbing so it keeps its shape and stays looking neat, while box pleats sit at each corner and in the middle to soften the silhouette. The oversized studs make a statement, but they’re tailored to suit your chosen fabric perfectly.

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 Charles

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.
