Curl up, relax (and admire…) Sofa.com and Abigail Ahern: new furniture

Get set for an exciting collaboration this autumn between two of Britain’s most respected and accessible interior brands: interior and product designer Abigail Ahern and upholstery designer/manufacturers Sofa.com who have created their first collection together.

sofa.com Abigail Ahern Abigail 3 Seat Sofa in Hudson £1810, Maud rectangular footstool in Dusty Rose £255

The three seater Abigail sofa, like the other pieces in the collection, can be upholstered in any of Sofa.com’s own house fabrics or a designer fabric, should these not appeal, though I can’t help thinking that these velvets (Hudson Roosevelt on the sofa, and Dusty Rose pink on the footstool) would be hard to beat.

As well as the must-have Abigail sofa, the collection includes this curvy, curl-into Stanley armchair, shown here upholstered in Baltic Roosevelt velvet:

Choose from square Celeste, below in Prussian Blue Velvet:

…. and Maud, a rectangular version that is large enough to use as an ottoman replacement or as a side table:
