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. The cushions have a core of firmer foam so that you’ll never feel the frame, which is then surrounded by feather, down and fibre. It’s a mix that gives Eva its balance of structure and softness.
Comfort and proportions
Eva is quite deep, and its slim arms leave room for a generously wide seat too. The base is firm enough to be comfortable under your knees but the back’s a little softer and the right height for shoulder support.
Along the edges runs a line of studs which highlight Eva’s architectural shape. Their colour has been selected to coordinate with each fabric, whether that’s Nickel studs with Hugo Spelt, Pewter studs with Clara Damson or Antique Brass studs with Emma Mustard.
Shape and silhouette
Both of Eva’s arms sweep downwards in two, elegant curves – it’s a look that’s a little more feminine than a straight arm and creates an attractive side profile. They also fall at just the right, comfortable height for leaning on.
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.
Taking care of Eva
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.
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.
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.
