Homes, like families, can come in all shapes and sizes.
When it comes to smaller spaces, a smaller square footage brings its own set of challenges in regards to finding furniture that will fit in your space, while still maintaining a reasonable surrounding area to move around. Finding furniture which is stylish and well crafted whilst being compact enough to compliment a smaller abode can sometimes be difficult.
That's why this month we've partnered with the team at Arlo & Jacob, who embrace compact living with their range of compact sofas and chairs, and are giving one lucky reader that chance to win their beautiful Celia cocktail chair! (This prize draw has now closed)
Arlo & Jacob is a furniture manufacturer steeped in a history of traditional craftsmanship. Their factory is based in Long Eaton, the home of British upholstery and each of their stunning pieces are made by hand, in your choice of over 120 house fabrics, plus designer options, before being carefully delivered to your home.
Each piece comes with a lifetime guarantee as standard, upholding their ethos of ‘sofas for life’. This family brand is named after the owner’s two young children and family is at the heart of everything they do. They believe that the sofa is the heart of the home; the stage for all of life’s moments.
Arlo & Jacob have recently introduced a range of compact sofas and chairs designed for smaller spaces. They know that families come in all shapes and sizes, so whether you are first-time buyers starting out in a small flat, renting in a studio, or downsizing from a larger home, more of us are embracing a smaller living space than ever before.
These two new sofa families take up a smaller footprint in your already limited space but are still just as comfortable as the larger styles on offer. The Ferdinand (left) family is a modern take on a classic mid-century icon. It has a square shape which is softened by deep button-backed seat cushions and sloping arms. The feather-wrapped foam seat cushions are made for snuggling up with family and friends, or for taking a Sunday afternoon snooze. Also available as a chaise, this compact sofa still allows enough room for the family to get together.
Just like the Ferdinand, the stylish Earnshaw range (right) has slightly shallower seats and smaller proportions for a comfortable fit in compact living rooms. This scandi-style piece comes in a variety of sizes, making it ideal for any sized home. The slim tapered legs raise this sofa off the ground, allowing light to pass underneath and giving the illusion of more space. A nifty trick, when you’re short on space.
Cocktail chairs are, by nature, petite and perfect for smaller rooms. Pair them with your compact sofa instead of bulkier armchairs, or use them in your bedroom as a pretty and practical piece of furniture. The new Celia cocktail chair (left) is a gorgeous, French-inspired piece that will bring a touch of sophistication to any room it sits in. The frame is fitted with steel springs for a seriously comfortable seat. Celia is one of three cocktail chairs currently available from Arlo & Jacob.
By simply answering a couple of questions. Arlo & Jacob are giving one lucky reader the chance to win this stunning Celia cocktail chair pictured above in this on-trend mustard hue. (This prize draw has now closed.)
