Liberty in London are currently featuring a selection of one of a kind products by Britains best loved icons in a silent auction in aid of British charities. My very favourite piece is the Paul Smith Sofa. Fashion Designer Paul Smith has combined his love of 19th century English country house sofas with original Liberty print colour swatches (chosen from their early silk swatch books) printed onto beautiful pure linen.
This sofa style is itself classic in every sense of the word. I have seen it placed in both traditional and extremely contemporary settings. The choice of fabric is the key!! It is a style that translates well into any size from a neat two seater to an oversized three seater or larger. I had this style made to order to fit the full length of wall in our television room/study and because of its size it looks rather opulent. It is actually covered in a fine wool which is, if anything, smart casual and very inviting to curl up on.
