Bardolph Chaise Sofa is mid-century re-invented; a classic that’s all grown up. Tulip-shaped arms and solid, splayed wooden legs give the impression of length and height, while clean, simple lines portray a streamlined, modern grace.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Get the bluesPlenty of Houzzers have fallen for the charms of blue sofas, and velvet’s ability to make colour sing ensures the pairing is pretty irresistible. This luxe design’s inky tones come to the fore against a white floor and curtains, with a graphic wallpaper linking to both backdrop and sofa in its colourway. Painting floorboards is a great strategy if yours aren’t lovely enough to simply strip and finish, but make sure you invest in a paint made for the job, as it’ll need to stand up to foot traffic.
Cultivate a classic lookYou might generally associate a blue and white colour scheme with a coastal vibe, but the striking silhouette of this inky velvet sofa against a bright white backdrop is chic, crisp and classic. Layer up texture and pattern, like the sheer curtains and geometric wallpaper here, to prevent the look from appearing too sterile.
Put it on wheelsA drinks trolley makes an interesting alternative to the standard side table. This one adds a touch of vintage glamour to the space. The wheels are practical too and allow the table to be moved around as needed.
