Our latest Design Lab collaboration
Big news from the sofa.com camp: we've teamed up with British printmakers, Thornback & Peel to produce a series of fantastic fabrics in five exclusive colours. Each one features the design duo's signature quirky motifs and intricate print details: ordered rows of extravagant and brightly-coloured jellies and cakes, and playful grey rabbits scampering through a field of cabbages. We love them!
The partnership marks the second year of sofa.com’s Design Lab initiative, which supports home-grown design talent and champions some of Britain's best, newest and up-and-coming designers. Last year, we introduced an eclectic collection of limited edition pieces with Norfolk-based print and textiles experts, St Jude’s; this year's collaboration, with the innovative Thornback and Peel, promises to be just as inspiring.
You can read all about our new fabric range with Thornback and Peel, and discover what influences the pair, on our Design Lab page. There, you'll also find some snaps of a few of our sofas, beds and chairs upholstered in these brilliant new fabrics - with top hats in tow! - from our recent photoshoot. We'd love to hear what you think!
And if you’re passing by our Chelsea Showroom, then you can see the full range of this new designer drapery for yourself!
