Soane works with the best chair makers and upholsterers in the UK. All Soane chairs and sofas are traditionally upholstered using the time honoured skills and finest materials. Each frame is hand-made exactly to the client’s specifications and is built for longevity and comfort. Some frames, like the Klismos for example, take a week to make, each being hand carved before it is polished or upholstered. Each piece is hand sprung, hand-stitched and webbed using feather and down cushions where possible. Every piece can be upholstered in a Soane Fabric, leather or client’s own material. Each chair is individually finished with tramline banding and studs, made on the last banding machine in England or hand nailed in patterns such as the sea scroll on The Casino Chair, a skill which has been honed by one upholsterer over 40 years.
Soane also has a Simplified Range of furniture which has been designed for use in restaurants and bars. The frame has been designed for strength and the upholstery uses modern techniques and materials.
