The 'Beautifully Individual' Douglas Low Arm Loveseat

The low arm loveseat is a statement piece which depicts our slogan ‘beautifully individual.’ Here beautifully photographed and styled by Design Hunter, who has long admired the understated elegance of our Douglas collection. The latest design, as the name suggests, has lower arms than the original Douglas, which gives it a slightly more relaxed feel.

There’s currently a big shift towards more textured fabrics in upholstery, reflecting a desire for materials that are warm, inviting and comforting, making us feel safe and cocooned. They are perfect for creating minimal spaces with soul, and with that in mind, how gorgeous is this chenille bouclé fabric option? The creamy white hue is unapologetically luxurious and the looped yarn of the bouclé creates visual texture, adding a cosiness and softness.

Designed by Russell Gillott the Douglas is a contemporary design characterised by lozenge shaped cushions. Bespoke black metal legs give the design a lightness and elegance and lumbar support is provided by an angled cushion section concealed behind the back rest cushions, ensuring that it is comfortable as well as stylish.


The low arm version is also available as an armchair (shown here), a two or three seater sofa, and as a loveseat. A footstool (available in two sizes) completes the collection, enabling you to create a chaise effect.

We at British Design Shop pride themselves on seamlessly blending contemporary design with traditional furniture making skills honed over time. Our design led and beautifully crafted pieces are supplied direct from quality British furniture makers. Offering the highest level of comfort, each hand crafted frame comes with a 10 year structural guarantee. The frame is carefully constructed from kiln-dried hardwood - the process of kiln drying removes all moisture from the wood, enabling it to retain its shape and stability to create a frame that lasts.

In creating your own unique piece you can either select one of ten recommended fabric options or choose from a wider selection of over 90 premium and luxury fabrics. In addition to the chenille bouclé weave option shown here, other fabric options include textural weaves, linen, wool and cotton. Stain guard fabric options are also recommended if children, heavy usage or pets are a consideration.

We also have eco-friendly fabric option of luxury recycled cotton, which you can view on the Douglas sofa in the beautiful home of Cate St Hill, who recently collaborated with us. The recycled cotton yarns in this new offering originate from the fashion industry and demonstrate that you don’t have to compromise on style when it comes to environmental wellbeing.
