We build our frames as pieces of furniture in their own right, using solid timber and proper joinery over cardboard sections and staples. And we’ve secured the back legs into each frame with finger joints to make them as strong and long-lasting as possible.
Support and a little bounce come from the serpentine springs in the base and elastic webbing in the back. And although Amelia doesn’t have any cushions, we’ve used a medium density foam and fibre wadding to soften it slightly and ensure you’ll never feel the frame beneath.
Comfort and proportions
Amelia has a generous seat space for an occasional chair, which supports your knees and encourages you to lean back. The curve in the frame gives it an inviting, wraparound feeling that hugs your shoulders.
Shape and silhouette
There’s a simplicity to the shape, because of how the arms are one curved, fluid line. It means that Amelia looks nice in pairs. In contrast to its curves, the oak legs are straight and unfussy, and the seat has a squared front.
Tufts in the fabric and diamond stitching give Amelia a luxurious, pocketed effect. This traditional detail is offset by very fine piping inside and out, which highlights the curves and adds crisp definition.
Delivered to you, safe and sound
From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
When it comes to designs upholstered in a made-to-order fabric or painted in a bespoke colour, there’s also a 20% returns/cancellation fee. We’d love to not have to charge a penny for this, but as they’re made just for you, we can’t always guarantee that we’ll be able to sell them again.
If you’ve bought something from us outside the UK or Ireland, just get in touch with the store you bought it from – or with our international team if you bought it through them – and they’ll let you know how you can return or exchange it.
And talk to our international team on +44 (0)1793 427 427 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Taking care of Amelia
Looking after Neptune designs is easy – they won’t ask you for a lot. But, whether you’d like advice on everyday cleaning or seasonal and yearly care, you’ll find all our tips, suggestions and recommendations in our care guides.
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.
If you’re ordering Amelia in one of our patterned wools or linens, we’ll pare-back the stitching and the number of pulls so it doesn’t appear too busy. And, in checked fabrics, the pulls will be placed at the point where two lines meet.
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.
You might notice ‘marks’ on the velvet when it comes out of its packaging or after you’ve lent on it. They happen when you flatten the fibres and are a completely normal characteristic of velvet – they’re all part of the way it ages. But if you’d prefer, you can use a velvet brush to push the pile back into place.
