Central to the appeal of this London sofa style is the emphasis placed on human comfort achieved through significant padding and stuffing around the frame or body of the sofa design. In many cases, traditional materials such as feather and down are used with a protective foam wrapping to ensure that the sofa maintains its shape with minimal maintenance required. As with many sofas designed in London during this period, innovative new stitching and stuffing techniques were required to achieve this result, which have since become standard practice within the upholstery profession.
Regardless of the debate concerning modern variants of the Howard Sofa, London remains at the forefront of modern sofa design alongside Paris, Milan and the Scandinavian capital cities as the leading lights of the global industry. While many think of the London Sofa as a traditional or timeless style, there is much to admire in the contemporary look and feel of more modern designs advanced by today up and coming interior designers. Just like the City of London itself, London Sofa upholstery, far from resting on its past laurels, is constantly moving forwards with energy, vibrancy and creative originality.
In actual fact, London upholsterers share a history with the tailors of Saville Row, whose technical expertise and guiding principles of discreet detail and fit were readily adopted by London Sofa designers in the 18th and 19th Century. Placing emphasis on attention to detail, upholsterers and tailors alike developed new techniques of sewing and stitching to accentuate the human form whether as a bespoke suit or a handcrafted sofa design.
