The Heather has on occasion been accused of lacking in confidence. If this is anyway true it is not because the sofa is unprepossessing but rather that it is doing its specified job very well. People tend to see the Heather as the opposite of flashy; reserved, demure, not dull just not showy. It is true that it seems to be designed to fit in with its surroundings beautifully without shouting about it, to complement not dominate but it would be a mistake to think that this was a sofa that couldn’t do colour. Dress the Heather up in brilliant finery if you wish. Why not? It will look fantastic. Yes, it is a sofa that is often tightly buttoned and sensibly presented but it also has a rarely seen wild side. With its deep seat and soft back pillows, its high arms and level back it has the bone structure to carry off any look you care to try. Taupe or hot pink, you decide.

Rume sofas are not available to purchase online for good reason. We build them one at a time from scratch to the highest possible standard, to the individual specification of our clients, in our Sussex workshops. Our sofas are an exceptional blend of tradition and innovation with frames from first grade kiln dried beech with glued, screwed and dowelled joints, legs in a timber and finish of your choice and with upholstery employing the finest modern materials and techniques. Rume design and make beautiful timeless furniture that is built to last and as such represents good value for money. If you are interested in our sofas and unable to visit our lovely Hove showroom then why not drop us a line via the CONTACT US button above and we can advise and provide you with a provisional quotation. Based on your preferences we can then send you a range of fabric, leather or timber samples and guide you through the process of final selection by correspondence. Our lead times are approximately ten weeks and we can deliver anywhere within the United Kingdom and international transport can be arranged on a case by case basis.
