New reproduction Wm Morris Arts & Crafts Movement green painted chesterfield sofa New reproduction Wm Morris Arts & Crafts Movement green painted chesterfield sofa

This painted sofa form parts of the Wm Morris's 'Artisan' furniture group. The plain Reformed Gothic shape & details & the green painted finish link it to other furniture from the range. The sofa is not the sort of 'soft' upholstery sofa we know today, but it does sit as part of the general Arts & Crafts genre. It has a loose upholstered seat covered with Willow Bough fabric, and is shown with a couple of matching bolster cushions. Also, shown is an antiqued white version of the same. The sofa could equally be fully upholstered, including the back.
