Alan Carr’s Chatty Man Rockingham Chippendale Sofa – Golden Leather

We’ve crafted sofas for some fairly impressive brands over the years, but never before have we been asked about crafting a gold Rockingham… WHAT AN OUTCOME! This Rockingham Chippendale themed sofa was crafted for popular TV personality Alan Carr for the eleventh series of his Channel 4 talk show, Chatty Man.

 

The show featured several high profile celebrities, including comedian Lee Evans, actress Keeley Hawes, the Rizzlekicks and X-Factor judge, Sharon Osbourne – many of which had their own adoring comments as they clapped their eyes on Chatty Man’s masterpiece.

 

The sofa had a fully loose coil spring seat and ball and claw legs which complimented the vibrant gold leather and that classic Chippendale humped back. The splayed arms with a detailed swan neck is very classy and glamorous and it’s fair to say that the sofa had great impact and character, rather like Chatty Man himself!

 

We can customise any of our Signature sofas and chairs in just about any leather of fabric you can think of. From tartan to zebra print, we’ve done the lot so if you fancy something unusual and unique yourself, get in touch to discuss your ideas.

 

This Rockingham is available from £3,695.

Crafting Manner 1

Crafting 1 Diagram

Our Manner 1 is identical to those of the 19th Century

The seat, back and arms are completely loose coil sprung, with 8 point hand tied loose coil steel springs. This helps the build stay strong and never lose it's shapes.

Only using natural materials, the fillings consist of horse tail and coconut fibre before being lined with organic lambswool.

Each and every fixing is hand tacked and the solid beechwood Tenon Jointed frame sits on our beautiful hand turned Walnut legs

Our Manner 1 also comes with the finest hand dyed British leather or an alternative pre-dyed leather or fabric of your choice.*

Our Manner 1 is amongst the world's finest hand crafted furniture and takes up to a month to craft.

Crafting Manner 2

Our Manner 2 is almost identical to our Manner 1 but not fully band tracked. In this instance we hand tack the seat and outside leathers.

The seat, back and arms are completely loose coil sprung. With 8 point hand tied loose coil steel springs. This helps the build stay strong and never lose it's shape.

Only using natural materials, the fillings consist of horse tail and coconut fibre before being lined with lambswool.

The solid beechwood tenon jointed frame sits on our beautiful hand turned Oak legs.

Our Manner 2 also comes with the finest hand dyed leather or an alternative or an alternative pre-dyed leather or fabric of your choice.*

Our Manner 2 is amongst the world's finest hand crafted furniture and takes up to a month to craft.

Crafting Manner 3

Crafting 3 Diagram

Our Manner 3 option is a blend between the traditionally crafted 19th century pieces, and an ever so slightly modern approach.

Just like our Manner 2, the seat, back and arms are completely loose coil sprung using 8 point and tied loose coil steel springs.

The key difference between our Manner 2 and 3 is that we use a rubberised hair and loose horse hair to fill. We will also staple the fixings in place of the hand tacked technique. However we do still hand tack the outer leathers.

He beechwood frame is dowelled, glued and screwed and sits on hand turned beechwood feet.

This option comes with hand dyed Italian/Scandinavian leather or a pre dyed leather/fabric of your choice.*

Our Manner 3 option remains one of the finest crafted pieces of furniture.

Crafting Manner 4

Our Manner 4 offers two options which offer key elements of the various approaches to traditional craftsmanship.

Option 1

The seat is fully loose coil sprung using 8-point hand tied loose coil steel springs, however the back and arms are not. We then use a rubberised hair and loose horse hair to fill.

Option 2

The seat, back and arms are completely loose coil sprung using 8 point hand tied loose coil steel springs. We use a medium density foam and line the inside with pure cotton felt.

We will also staple the fixings in place of the hand tacked technique. However we do not still hand tack the outer leathers..*

The beechwood frame for both options is dowelled, glued and screwed and sits on hand turned beechwood feet.

This option comes with a hand dyed Italian/Scandinavian leather or a pre dyed leather/fabric of your choice.*

Manner 4 is a great option to blend the elements of the more traditional crafting techniques.

Crafting Manner 5

Crafting 5 Diagram

Our Manner 5 option is the slightly modern approach to traditional craftsmanship.

The seat is fully loose coil sprung using 8-point hand tied loose coil steel springs (not to be confused with the 'sprung units'), however the back and arms are not.

We use a medium density foam and line the inside with our cotton felt.

The beechwood frame is dowelled, glued and screwed and sits on hand turned beechwood feet.

This option comes with hand dyed Italian/Scandinavian leather or a pre dyed leather/fabric of your choice.*

Manner 5 is our modern approach to crafting yet still un-paralleled in terms of the high street of specialists.

Crafting Manner 6

Our crafting 6 is certainly our most modern crating option.

The seat is either webbed or we use serpentine springs. Fillings are a very good medium density foam and line the inside with cotton felts.

The beechwood frame is dowelled, glued and screwed and sits on hand turned beechwood feet.

This option comes with pre dyed leather/fabric of your choice (fabric up to £40/m).
