How do you get a chair from a couch? It’s easy when you get it from Couch, founded in 2008 by designer Deborah Swift. Inspired by antique furniture and opulent fabrics, she created a line of lovingly restored period furniture that is upholstered in luxe, jazzy fabrics.
The Valbonne Chair (£495), a French armchair with black ebonised frame, is a lovely example of the kind of design Couch is known for. I’ve featured patchwork furniture once or twice before – specifically items from Squint – but I think I like Swift’s designs the best.
