Step One Design

Britannia: The Great British sofa is a limited edition piece, designed by DFS' Design Director Philip Watkin and his talented design team.

Inspired by the British Chesterfield design, it has been given a modern update for 2016, with a distinctive sweeping 'camel back' frame cut and assembled by hand in our Derbyshire wood mill.

Step Three Material

The choice of fabric for the sofa was key. The luxurious fabric was sourced from a beautiful mill in the heart of Lancashire from 5th generation weavers, Art of the Loom.

The sofa has been handcrafted to ensure maximum comfort using quality techniques on springs and cushioning.

To capture the spirit of the athletes, the design has striking golden studs on the scroll arms and handmade gold coloured buttons deep in the
pleated back to represent past Team GB gold medals

The elegance of the sofa is further enhanced with English Oak feet, designed here in Britain and hand turned exclusively for this piece.
