Soane’s traditionally upholstered chairs, sofas and stools are made by numerous specialists employing diverse materials to meet the demands of each design. Frames are delivered from the chair makers ready to be hand-sprung, hand-stitched and webbed, using feather and down cushions. Pieces are upholstered in a Soane in-house fabric or leather, or using the client’s own material. Finishing options include tramline banding made using the last banding machine in England, and hand nailing, a skill honed by one upholsterer over 40 years and exemplified in the scrolled nailing on The Casino Chair.

Soane Simplified is a collection of designs developed and priced specifically for commercial projects. They are made in British workshops using modern upholstery techniques and materials, ensuring consistent quality and craftsmanship.
