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 and 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 and 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 your shoulders.
The covers are precision-made to the frame, but with a degree of looseness so that you can take them on and off. Together with the kick pleats – stitched in place at each corner – it means that no matter how much you use Long Island, the covers will never fall out of place.
