Oscar sofa by Matthew Hilton
Fully sustainable, designed and hand-made with the upmost care, SCP upholstery meets exacting modern standards by utilising time-honoured techniques. Blending talent with tradition to produce elegant pieces that live well and live long.
The Oscar sofa by Matthew Hilton strikes a pleasing balance between modernity and tradition, large in size yet light in appearance. It’s made from a European hardwood frame, jute webbing and hessian straps and then covered with a mix of Colors that includes natural fibres, animal hair and wool. It features two large feather cushions that are notable for their depth, the back has a line of sewn in pulls, lending the sofa the appearance of a buttoned back, without the actual buttons. The feet are made from walnut stained beech, with the front two being turned versions.
On show at Design Department store is the new 2011 four seat version. It is also available as an armchair, chaise longue, or as a system.
By contrasting long straight lines with delicate natural curves, Hilton has created a piece that is both reserved and full of humility. The Oscar sofa is a piece perfect for those who like their modernity laced with a little familiarity. Made in the UK.
