Delivery Time:

Ella by Carsten Astheimer is an understated and comfortable design inspired by the idea of cocooning yourself in a peaceful space.     

Ella features a sleek cocoon like frame which is contrasted by soft large internal cushions.   The proportions of the Ella sofa feature sleek curved arms and back detailing, coupled with deep and generous cushioning inside.    The fabric selection for Ella is the iconic Linara from British fabric design house Romo.   Carsten has previously specified this material for yacht interiors as it has an exceptional peach skin softness whilst retaining a luxurious natural quality. 


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 comes with a ten-year structural guarantee.

SEAT: The seating base is manufactured using elasticated seat webbing stretched to provide tension under a layer of 100gsm polypropylene fleece, a further layer of 400-gram needled polyester insulator and finally a covering of Reflex foam and Dacron, the seats comfort comes directly from the cushion which is a generous depth of Reflex foam covered with a thick layer of 750gsm Dacron adding softness.

UPHOLSTERED BACK REST: The back curves are created using a base of polypropylene upholstery webbing, 3mm fibreboard covered with 400-gram needled polyester insulator and then covered with Reflex foam and Dacron resulting in a unique upholstered cocoon shape. The outsides are fibre boarded to maintain the wonderful shape and then covered with a thick Dacron under the fabric to continue our commitment to quality.

FABRIC: We have picked 6 of our favourite colours from Linara. An exquisite cotton-linen blend, Linara has a beautiful brushed finish with an exceptionally soft, peach-skin feel that adds a luxurious quality to this versatile plain. Highly acclaimed, Linara is a washable linen union that remains a go to plain offering style and versatility along with practicality and durability.  The additional option to supply your own fabric is also available when purchasing a made to order item.
