The Beaton Sofa

This classic sofa is a faithful copy of a pair of 1950s sofas originally made for Cecil Beaton. The neat, rectangular design with curved interior and single cushion pad is traditionally upholstered in a Somerset workshop and available in a Soane (or client’s own) Fabric or Leather. The stylish iron feet are hand-beaten by Soane’s blacksmith to the original design and offered in a selection of in-house Forged Finishes. Loose covers are also available for use with this sofa.
The upholstery filling of this design is made using natural materials.
