In today’s design conscious world, Artistic’s design philosophy is a combination of classical shapes, with a quintessentially English Twist, taking inspiration from our cultural heritage, whilst combining today’s needs and style to produce beautiful bespoke furniture.
AWARD WINNING DESIGN
In 1998 we were awarded the coveted Production Guild Mark by the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers in recognition of high quality of production and manufacture.
QUALITY & COMFORT
Most designs have traditional mesh coil springs on steel laths for the seats, with areas of extreme use having heavier gauge springs to retain shape and support.
Some decorative chairs and sofas have individual 8-way hand tied coil springs stitched to jute webbing, whilst some designs have serpentine springs due to restricted height or depth of the seat. Backs are mainly serpentine sprung. Depending on the design and level of comfort required, cushion fillings vary from high-density foams and fibres through to de-quilled feather and down.
It is worth considering what type of comfort and look you require when selecting cushion interiors. Feathers, for instance, require more maintenance and plumping than a feather or fibre wrap interior. Generally the lower the quality of feather, the heavier it will be, whilst a mixture Feather of Down will give a better sit, look, and be easier to maintain. For an insight into what to look for in terms of quality, cushion fillings and construction we recommend that you read our ‘Guide to Traditional and Classic Upholstery by visiting www.buyingasofa.co.uk. It has a wealth of information, and perhaps help you both understand and your selection of quality for your application.
