Edith 3 Seater Sofa
Delivery Time:

Edith by Russell Gillott is a contemporary interpretation of the classic chesterfield shape, characterised by soft voluminous forms, high levels of comfort and clean upholstery detailing.  The angled back support and deep cushioning combined with reflex foams provide the highest levels of comfort.  Edith demonstrates that bold clean lines can also offer high levels of comfort and a contemporary yet elegant feel.  


FRAME: The frame is carefully constructed from kiln-dried hardwood, this process of kiln drying removes all moisture from the wood, enabling it to retain its shape and stability to create a frame that lasts. The frame joints get special attention, they are glued, dowelled, and screwed, corners and seat rails are further strengthened by the addition of reinforcing blocks for increased support and strength. The base of the frames are CNC (computer numerical control) cut from 23mm birch plywood to ensure all the frames are milled to the same exacting standards, ensuring that all the plinths fit exactly. 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, your hand-crafted furniture frame comes with a full ten-year structural guarantee.

SEAT: The seating base is manufactured using serpentine springs tensioned under a layer of 400-gram insulator to prevent “spring noise” this is overlaid with 100gsm polypropylene fleece. The seat comfort comes directly from the shaped cushions which have an impressive depth of Reflex foam covered with a layer of 300-gram Dacron adding softness. The seat cushions fabric is joined together and anchored centrally to provide a seating area that is very comfortable, supportive, less prone to cushion “pooling” and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

UPHOLSTERED BACK REST & ARMS: The back is 10-gauge D arc superloop springs, covered with 100gsm polypropylene fleece and then covered with Reflex foam and Dacron resulting in a unique upholstered shape. The outsides are paid equal attention with a layer of 100gsm polypropylene fleece which is then covered with a Dacron under the fabric to continue our commitment to quality

SEAM DETAIL: The cushions and majority of the upholstered bodywork seams are embellished with a top stitch needled seam, this style of finish on furniture with such a degree of shaping highlights the exacting skill and attention to detail we strive for in our furniture.

FABRIC: In creating your own unique pieces you can either select one of the ten designers recommended options or choose from a wider selection of over 80 premium and luxury fabrics. To help you make the perfect choice we will send up to 6 fabric samples to your door free of charge.

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

SCATTER CUSHIONS: The Edith comes with two 50cm x 30cm scatters as standard to finish the “sumptuous look” of the sofa other scatters are available in a range of sizes, filled using quality china duck feather.
