Botanical Beauty

Floral fabrics are a textile staple, and have been popular for use in the home as upholstery, wallpapers and carpets. Recently, tropical imagery has come into fashion with motifs of exotic fruits and foliage being seen on almost everything from apparel to homeware. Like a midnight paradise, the Zanzibar uses a beautiful composition of palm leaves and flora across a deep indigo shade.

Leather Lover

Always fashionable, leather has a gorgeous texture and distinctive feel. Not only is it more luxurious than standard fabrics, but its naturally occurring characteristics such as marks or wrinkles make each piece one-of-a-kind. The leather used in the Zanzibar is of a midnight blue tone, making this sofa all the more unique and alluring.

Iconic Design

Inherently British, the Chesterfield is arguably one of the most iconic sofas. Its quilted button back arrangement and elegant scroll arms make it a timeless, classic design. While the Zanzibar offers a lot of modernity and avant-garde vibes, its archetypal construction makes it a refreshing twist on an old icon.
