The Portland sofa

The Portland sofa is inspired by modernist design principles where form follows function. With uncluttered elegance and minimal ornamentation, this model echoes the 1960s but remains timelessly stylish.

The grid and button detail on the sprung back adds interest without detracting from the overall strength and simplicity of the design. The sharp, clean line of the wooden underframe provides contrast and emphasis on the horizontal; characteristic elements of the modernist style.

The wooden underframe can be finished in one of our select wooden finishes and timbers: choices include both smoked and limed oak, as well as other traditional timbers and stained finishes.

The clean lines of the Portland can carry contemporary fabric designs and textures; fabric choices should allow the grid and buttons to provide the focus while allowing the overall appearance to remain uncluttered.

The Portland can be made as a 2, 2½ or 3 seat sofa, and also makes a stunning corner unit – the clean silhouette making a striking statement in contemporary interiors.

This truly cosmopolitan design comes as both a sofa and armchair variant, and both of which are complemented by the Portland stool which features the same grid, buttons and underframe design.
