The New Edwin Sofa by Sheila Bownas

A beautiful collaboration from Chelsea Cefai of the Sheila Bownas archive with furniture brand Parlour. Sheila Bownas Sofa - October 2013 - 2

Handcrafted in the north east of England the Edwin sofa is inspired by the versatile daybeds of the 1950s.  The rich solid walnut pairs beautifully with a range of printed linens from the Bownas library, which are mixed subtly with plain textured weaves. Designed to have strength and durability whilst ensuring maximum comfort for sitting and sleeping each bespoke sofa is a celebration of British design heritage and present day British craft.

To complete the collection there will be a coordinated range of art prints, cushions, and fabric together with an exquisite set of table lamps made by the renowned designer Zoe Darlington.
