The name Edward is a reference to American mid century designer Edward Wormley whose designs have remained highly influential. Edward is a contemporary reinterpretation of the mid century archetype established by Wormley.
The Edward sofa combines the use of several down-filled back cushions with a single seat cushion giving it an informal and relaxed appearance. The buttoned seat cushion alludes to the Edward's mid century roots, yet its proportions and comfort are decidedly contemporary. The backrest and arms are appropriately scaled to give excellent back support without appearing oversized and heavy, while the down-filled back cushions conform to give superb comfort. Edward is available in three sizes, and can be specified in either fabric or leather, or in fabric with a leather seat.
