Austen Sofa

Prototype 2012

The brief was to design an entry point modular sofa, with every module being interchangeable. I wanted to design a range that would be easily to deliver though small urban apartment doors and could be flexible with many different configurations.

I really liked the idea of mixing a muted colour like grey with brighter richer colours, so the customer could mix and match depending on how daring they were feeling.

I also designed 3 types of cushion; a bolster, square buttoned and rectangular buttoned so the customer could personalise the sofa (as with their own cushions too).

The seat is buttoned meaning little fabric is wasted when the units are upholstered.

Estimated unit prices to Retail for the whole configuration in the images £799.

Mono Rug

Brief to design affordable design led pattern to compliment the current catalogue. Monographic was inspired from catwalk fashion trends of graphic shapes, monochrome and fleuro accent colours. The fuchsia piping adds a contemporary twist and punch of colour. A complimenting rug is also included in this range, using a more muted verdigris accent. This rug design was briefed to add graphic pattern and style to a customers home without being overbearing or to ‘trendy’ that it would go out of style quickly.
