Jasper is another sofa that literally changes with the times, with customisation its specialty.
Platforms and shelves can be added and moved around – such as incorporating a bookshelf or side table in place of an armrest, or extending a 2 seater to a 3 or 4 seater setting, or sofa bed.
King’s newest sofa, Carousel has resonated strongly with consumers since launching in July 2011, and it’s not just the sophisticated aesthetic that is turning heads.
“We introduced flexible and interchangeable arms and backs that accommodate a range of resting positions because we recognise that lying on the sofa is one of life’s great pleasures”.
The engineering mechanism that makes this smooth adjustment possible was developed by King and is a design first both here and overseas. Carousel has also gained industry interest, winning the 2011 Excellence in Furniture using Fabric Award at the Australian Furniture Awards.
King Furniture’s design team has expanded over the past three years under the helm of David King, and now includes specialists in textiles (leather, fabric, tailoring), industrial and furniture designers and design students who are mentored by King – through internships as well as tertiary initiatives. Additionally the company collaborates with successful Australian designers, including Charles Wilson – who worked on the award winning Andrea sofa design – and David Hicks – who is the interior architect behind King’s award winning showrooms.
Sofas designed for australia’s lifestyle.
So what should we look for when shopping for a sofa? King’s top tips for choosing a sofa:
1. Design – Quality design will last the distance – both in aesthetic and in resilience. Choose a sofa that combines stylish yet classic design with durable, high end materials.
2. Flexibility – Does the sofa suit your lifestyle? A modular design allows you to add or re-arrange sofa components. Adjustable settings for arms/backs/legs is a plus!
3. Deep comfort – You will relax and entertain on this sofa, so it must be comfortable! A quality frame and durable seating system are vital for long lasting comfort. Most importantly, try it out!
A sofa should work in with your lifestyle and not the other way around, so if your sofa ‘can’t’ – a King can! For further information about King Furniture visit www.kingfurniture.com.au
