Vintage Knole Sofa
The majestic vintage Knole sofa seen here is made from a Beechwood frame with polished ball feet and recovered in a gorgeous Fox Brothers cloth. The Bracken 'West of England Tweed', has a subtle flash of crimson and heather woven into it and the Knole is finished off with tassels in caramel cotton, which hold the hinged arms securely in place.
The Bracken 'West of England Tweed' is woven by Fox Brothers and is inpired by the English countryside of rolling hills and untamed moors grazed by sheep, which surround the historic Somerset mill.
Please note decorative cushions are not included but are available to purchase.

The first Knole sofa is said to have been made about 350 years ago for the Sackville family, whose ancestral home was Knole House in Kent.
The traditional English upholstery is created using a combination of natural fibres, bonded hog hair, jute webbing and double cone springs.
The one-off Knole sofa for sale on The Merchant Fox is covered in Bracken Check, a 'West of England Tweed' cloth from Fox Brothers, the English woollen mill established in Somerset in 1772, which makes Fox one of England’s oldest surviving woollen mills.
