Anslem Sofa

The Anselm has echoes of a traditionally upholstered 19th century sofa. The superb comfort of this sofa is ensured through the springs in the seat and fixed back cushions filled with our ultimate blend of feathers and hand-stitched to the solid beech frame.  Ensemblier sofas use traditional upholstery and sustainable methods with layers of natural fillings such as horsehair, hessian and GOTS cotton lining. Our sofas are ready for customers to apply their chosen fabric, allowing for each piece to be custom-made.  Ensemblier handcraft furniture in the UK to last you a lifetime and beyond.

Anselm featured fabric in Soane Old Flax in Indigo.

Our June 2022 price increase reflects the dramatic increase of sustainable raw materials.
