Alwinton sofa  – Elegant and classic design

When we think of classic design, there are many great turning points in history that stand out to us. From Edwardian grandeur to post-modern minimalism each adding their mark to the timeless design rule book. Classic design in it’s definition; remains up to date regardless of the year and holds its own as a standard for its kind. Classics really do stand the test of time and we draw on these highlights when designing our sofa shapes and models. This ensures every Sofas & Stuff sofa will not only last a lifetime but the shapes and styles is remain as up to date as the day you purchase.

For us – the Alwinton sofa is our definition of classic design. The simple and classic shape has its roots firmly in traditional design, making is a timeless piece for any home. Whether it’s a calming space to relax, a family-friendly environment or unexpected statement, the Alwinton is well worth a look.

Under the covers of the Alwinton

The Alwinton is a super-comfortable, classic Howard style sofa. Suited to both traditional and modern settings the Alwinton is an all-round sturdy design constructed from a hardwood frame. Handmade here in Britain, the perfectly proportioned frame supports the sumptuous seat cushions. While white duck feather and fibre inners supply ample support as well as a place to rest your head.

Pleated arms in the classic Howard style, sit neatly inset into the body of the sofa. While a delicate piped edge finishes this elegant and classic sofa.
