Sorell Settee

SKU: 26617NA In Stock

Imagine a stormy afternoon in Paris, 1933. A young couple rushes inside to escape the rain, and find themselves standing in the grand entrance of Paris’ stunning Le Bristol Hôtel. Elegant parlor chairs and plush settees are arranged facing each other in small vignettes, creating an aura where warm conversation flows and time seems to slow down. Our Sorell Collection infuses that vintage grace with modern, deconstructed elements. These pieces captivate, especially the upholstered backs, which are accentuated with an exposed wood framework that is hand-stained in a warm, weathered finish. The chair and settee are traced by the beauty and light of antique brass nailheads, giving these classic outlines a chic, uptown appearance. Unique and elegant, these pieces are ideal for open floor plan seating. Handcrafted by skilled upholsterers in Virginia, our Sorell chair and settee are covered in a cotton blend fabric that delights with a woven, grain sack texture. Made of beech, the wood is finished through a multi-step process that dramatizes many antique inspired markings such as the dense patterns of wormholes that pepper the surface. The tapered legs feature handsome carving detail where they join the frame. Whether placed in the hotel lobby of a historic Parisian hotel, a New York loft or Cleveland century home, these upholstered beauties will make a statement wherever they’re placed.
Product Details
    • This collection is stocked in Emily Tweed, a cotton and acrylic fiber blend that creates a woven, grain sack texture.
    • Through a multi-step process, the wood is given a weathered look that highlights naturally occurring nicks and antique-inspired markings.
    • Sorell’s construction delivers an exceedingly strong and stable exterior frame that is built from solid beech wood.
    • The interior frame is enhanced with a distinctive no-sag construction sustained by a network of resilient sinuous springs that provide flexible and evenly dispersed support.
    • The seat cushions feature a 2.0 density foam core topped with an eco-friendly foam wrap consisting of more than 20 percent plant-based material, encased in layers of soft Dacron plus an abundance of fibers, feathers and down to deliver an irresistibly soft and cozy feel.
    • These pieces are handcrafted by skilled American upholsters using a workshop method known as: Mortise and tenon assembly. Mortise and tenon assembly is one of the best ways to secure two pieces of wood that connect at a “t”. The end of one piece is fashioned into a round or rectangular shape (tenon), which is designed to fit into the same size hole on the other end (mortise).
Recommended Care
    • Pieces in the Sorell Collection follow the “S” cleaning code: Spot clean only with a solvent based cleaning product. Do not use water.
    • For all cleaning codes, pre-test any/all cleaners for color loss and fabric compatibility.
    • Spills should be removed immediately with a damp cloth. Do not over wet.
    • For overall cleaning, consult a professional upholstery cleaner.
    • All fabric may fade over time. Wearability of fabric is relative to care and use.
    • Rotate cushions periodically to distribute wear.
    • Avoid exposing your furniture to excessive heat (e.g., by placing it in front of a radiator) as this can cause cracking and potential fading of the wood; a minimum 30 cm clearance from heat sources is advised.
    • Do not drag this piece(s) across the floor, as this will cause damage or weaken joints.
    • Dropping furniture onto corners or feet will cause damage.
    • Leaning backwards on chair legs may weaken joints.
    • Toys, buckles and heels will scratch furnishings. Try to prevent these objects from coming into contact with your piece(s).
    • Dust wood with a soft, dry cloth; use Guardsman® Wood Polish occasionally.
