Design details: Underframes

A number of our sofa, chair and stool models sit on feature wood underframes as standard: resulting in a strong, contemporary edge to the designs.

The crisp design lines of an underframe give a definitive grounding to a piece. Moreover, Kingcome’s wide variety of wood finishes can be selected from, ensuring that the underframe perfectly complements your chosen upholstery fabric and enhances your overall design scheme.

Most of our furniture styles can be made with or without an underframe, which can greatly alter the look of the piece. In general they are more suited to contemporary designs, where they give a clean shape and sharp silhouette. If you are considering using an underframe on a piece of furniture, then we can draw this for you.

The underframe allows more of the timber choice to be seen, which can work well to link the sofa with other pieces of wooden or upholstered furniture.
