reintroducing the knole sofa
What about this in your Castle?
We have just completed this lovely Knole sofa which will soon be looking for a new home. The Knole sofa originates from the 17th Century when it initially served as a formal throne before becoming a comfortable draught proof seat. The sides are hinged and secured using elaborate cord tie backs. It is comfortable and quite a talking point in any setting.
The original Knole sofa is housed at Knole in Kent, a house owned by the Sackville-Wests family since 1605 and now in the care of the British National Trust, but I digress.
Blanchetts Fine Furniture is proud to continue the making of traditional furniture as well as re-furbishment of fine old pieces. We have been known to rework the original horse hair fill of a French bench sofa that was over two hundred years old. One is left wondering of the history of the furniture whilst sifting through two centuries of dust whilst repairing springs and re strengthening the glorious old timber.
