Amy Loveseat

Amy Loveseat
Delivery Time:

Amy by Carsten Astheimer is a modern classic take on a loveseat. The design curves around the body, encouraging you to immerse yourself within the soft forms of the seat. To create this cocoon shape the backrest is folded and pleated in a regular fashion like a blossoming flower. We have chosen a contemporary hard wearing velvet for the covering which accentuates the organic voluptuous forms.


FRAME: All our frames are CNC (computer numerical control) cut from 18mm birch plywood to ensure all the frames are milled to the same exacting standards.  Birch, when used in the construction of plywood benefits from reduced expansion and shrinkage, providing improved dimensional stability; Ideal for engineering and components requiring fine machinability or high strength to weight ratio, in this case your furniture frame, which as a result comes with a ten-year structural guarantee.

SEAT: The seat comfort and support is achieved using pocket springs, each spring is wrapped in it own individual cloth sleeve, holding the spring at exactly the right tension and allowing it to move independently. This is then further enhanced by a generous covering of Reflex foam and Dacron resulting in a seat that is truly balanced providing comfort and longevity.

UPHOLSTERED BACK REST: Each individual back flute is created using a base of elasticated upholstery webbing, covering with 400-gram polyester insulator and then filled with Reflex foam and Dacron to ensure maximum comfort and reliance.  The outside is fibre boared to maintain the wonderful shape and then covered with a thick Dacron under the fabric.

FABRIC: Contemporary, hard-wearing and practical velvet with a stain repellent finish which has a resilient, yet soft touch and subtle mottled effect, available in a stylish palette of 6 understated pastels, rich jewel-like tones and classic neutrals.   There is also an option to have this piece made in a bespoke fabric selected by the customer.

LEGS: A true statement of quality your furniture legs are turned from solid Walnut or Ash.  The screw in legs are easily fitted and located using prepositioned metal plates on the base of the furniture
