Arkham Sofa by AUTHOR: the home of British-made luxury furniture

Regular price £2,930 Sale

Exquisitely handcrafted in Edinburgh.

This sofa has fixed cushions. The back cushion has elegant, deep buttons. Arkham is seen here covered in a natural neutral linen, but if you would prefer to upholster with your own fabric then we would require 14 metres for the small sofa, 16 metres for medium, 18 metres for the large one. The frame and feet are in a dark oak wood finish.

Please note that the above costs include upholstery but do not include the cost of fabric.

Select luxury gift wrapping in the BAG page for just £3.50 per gift or accessory ordered. We will wrap the gift beautifully in one of our luxury gift boxes with tissue paper, ribbon and seasonal decoration. We can also add a personalised message for you which you can provide in the ‘notes' section at checkout

  • Don't worry if your cushions are firmer than expected when they arrive. This is normal and the filling will settle down over time and through use.
    The easiest way to keep upholstery fabric clean and looking good is simply to hoover it. Consult a specialist cleaner to advise on the care of velvets and leather as these may require extra care.
Why we love this product

Forget the madness outside, you'll be safe inside the firmly padded walls of this elegantly buttoned, straight-sided sofa.

We fell madly in love with the firm padding of the Arkham sofa as soon as we set eyes on it. After sitting in it, well, we were simply crazy about it.

The Arkham sofa, a straight-sided design with classic buttoning suits any style of interior, from classic to contemporary. It would look fantastic in so many different materials, and especially leather.

The boxy design is available in three different widths. Two of these beautiful sofas would work well together, positioned opposite each other for easy conversation with a low footstool in-between. The smaller width sofa would suit a snug, office or more compact living space.

What our customers say...

"I really like your website -I like its emphasis on the makers, on quality and on objects that seem a bit different and special ( I will definitely explore more!). And it was easy to contact you - and you replied - quickly! All rather marvellous!”
