Superb Pair of “Georgian” Sofas in Romo Velvet, Made by George Smith Craftsmen
Price - £2400
On offer on this occasion is an identical pair of the most stunning, modern-English pieces of furniture you could hope to find.
This is an ultra-rare opportunity to acquire what is, unequivocally, the best of the best, it being a most spectacular, immaculate, beautifully-presented suite of “Georgian” Fixed-Back, 2.5-Seat sofas, recently commissioned by a private client in an impossibly-elegant and demure, yet remarkably robust Romo Velvet in Steel Blue/Grey Velvet, and presented with dark-hardwood legs.
As you will no doubt be aware by your interest in this listing, pieces of this nature offered for sale by Lord Browns are the epitome of classic English furniture design, are of peerless quality, and exhibit detailing and execution of an unrivalled standard.
In particular, this bespoke commission was created by a highly-respected (but trade-only) furniture-manufacturer from the North-East of England, where every craftsman employed has previously been retained in senior-positions at the world-renown George Smith Furniture Factory in Northumberland. As such, whilst specified without a hand-tied, full spring system across the base, their appearance, finish and component-quality are top-class.
In a world of temporary pleasures, these industry-leading, ex-George Smith craftsmen create beautiful furniture built to last a lifetime, with there being no more-elegant, or more beautifully appointed, example of their work than this.
This suite is in mint, impeccably-maintained condition, having rarely been employed since its manufacture, and is entirely free from fault, flaw or damage. Aside from the pile of the velvet sitting in different directions (giving it a marked/dappled appearance in places which, if required, can be addressed by the use of steam on the pile) they are nothing short of immaculate and divine.
Please view the images provided closely to confirm their exceptional condition and appearance. Being a high-grade Velvet, it presents as 2 very different colours depending on from where the fabric is viewed relative to the light, with it having a deep, dark grey component when looking into the grain of the pile, and a lighter, more lustrous, metallic quality when the pile runs away from the eye. This sublime Romo cloth is entirely gorgeous and, as a consequence, a more handsome, modest and versatile suite is almost impossible to imagine.
Their dimensions are H-90cm, W-176cm and D-90cm each, and the breathtaking seating position this striking contemporary-design creates is enhanced by the use of sumptuously comfortable, generously-sprung back and overstuffed feather-filled seat cushioning, which leaves you powerless to resist its charms.
Costing over £8,000 when purchased, and having occupied a rarely-used formal sitting room, they represent spectacular value for money, and we have no doubt they will serve and delight their new owner for many years to come.
Delivery of this suite to most UK mainland addresses will cost £180, and can be organised on behalf of the winning bidder upon request using one of our hand-picked panel of specialist, fully-insured independent furniture couriers.
