Howard Keith sofa makeover

1 Comment


We had been holding on to this one for a quite a while for two reasons....firstly because its style to me just perfectly epitomes early British mid century design, and secondly, (from a mid century furniture collectors point of view) I knew we wouldn't find another one of these again in a hurry! 

This is an early 1950s Howard Keith two seater sofa, showing off the distinctively shaped Beech legs found exclusively on Howard Keiths 'Bambino' range - what a find! We were over the moon to source it. 

It would be fair to say that it was in rather a sorry state when we recived it, but it was still lovely to see the orginal Red and Cream two tone upholstery which is something I always get excited about.

After recieving an enquiry about a similar wing back sofa spotted in our archive, and after a bit of pondering on our side, we decided it was time to let it go, and so thats where the transformation began!

Our customer chose an excellent fabric combination of a light Grey melton wool, and zingy Orangey Red linen contrasting buttons - we were so thrilled with the results! Check out our before and after shots.......
