I have designed a lot of sofas in my time, some more successful than others but there is no doubt in my mind that the Petal is the prettiest. From it's petal shaped arms and the gentle curve of its continuous outside arc, to the single button in each of its back cushions and the delicate turn of its conical feet it really is lovely to look at from any angle. This beauty does not come easy as the Petal is the very devil to build demanding the highest levels of skill and attention to detail from our framemakers and upholsterers. The result is a sofa that is not only very comfortable to sit on but also very comfortable in its skin and able to carry off almost any fabric from the strictest of grey wools to the softest of pink velvets.

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.
