Eli Sofa, making a statement in the home of Kirsty Gore from KJG Interiors
Kirsty Gore founder of KJG Interiors, a social media influencer who had developed a signature personal brand through her social media with her fashion and enthusiam for styling and interiors. She has always been a huge fan of British Design Shop and during her renovation project of her 1960s built home, she was keen to work with us in making her a bespoke sofa that fitted her style, form, comfort and durabiltiy for her newly renovated open plan extension.
Kirsrty had a keen interest in our Eli modular sectional sofa. A bold and sumptuous sectional sofa design characterised by a geometric architectural outline, blended with inner soft form. The modular design means you can configure the sofa to any size, shape (‘L’ or ‘U’ shape) to your liking and need. But she wanted to take the classic design of our Eli and make to suit and fit her family home. She worked with our lead designer Russell Gillott, in specifying the details of what she was looking for. She suggested higher back slimline cushions to support head rest and a corner chasie which would be fitting for the corner asymmetrical layout of her open plan living area facing onto the garden.
The high back soft and rectangular back cushions, which sit on a shaped reflex foam seat cushion to give an extremely comfortable sit. Each section connects using a hidden mechanism in the base to ensure they remain in place whilst in use and can be easily uncoupled when needed. Chunky piping detailing across the design gives an additional touch of style, whilst showing off the best of British upholstery craft.
Kirsty wanted to elevate her newly renovated space giving it a timeless look with a calm tranquil feel with her scandinavian style, nordic feel with neutral aethetics. With this in mind she chose Deluxe Urbane Velvet in Eggshell, which is 100% cotton with stain guard. Our Urbane comes in various colours and is densely woven using the finest mercerised cotton yarn to create a luxuriously soft velvet with a silky appearance and the most exquisite touch. With the added benefit of this fabric having stain-guard meant Kirsty was thrilled as this gave her a peace of mind with her selection of light coloured fabric because it has protection from spillage or dirt making it an ideal choice with children and pets.
