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.
