‘Fit’ is everything
Finding the perfect sofa is like finding the perfect pair of jeans. It takes time, a lot of research and a lot of trial and error before you find the perfect fit. The same goes for sofas. Fit is different for everyone and every space. You may prefer a deeper seat it is more cozy whereas a friend might not maybe she’s shorter. You may prefer the look of two seat cushions. She may prefer three. Or you may need an apartment size sofa and she needs lots of seating for a great room.
With Remington, our new sofa for 2016, we took versatility seriously and decided to load this collection up with size and style options so you can create a sofa that fits you and your room.
Choose your length: 72”, 84”, 96” or 108”
Choose number of cushions: 2 or 3 (available on the 84”, 96” and 108” sofas)
Choose your depth: 40” or 46”
Choose your fabric: 11 ultra luxe Belgian linens
Choose your stain: 11 finishes
The linen selection is made by a century-old mill in Belgium. The beauty of linen versus cotton is its strength and resiliency—it will only look better with use and age. It will get softer too. Plus it’s eco-friendly, both biodegradable and recyclable (which we love) and hypoallergenic. A thermal fabric, it will keep you cool in the warmer months and warm in the colder months.
As if the custom options aren’t enough, Remington is not lacking in the comfort department either. Sit down and we promise, you won’t want to get up.
The seat cushions are a combination of springs and feather down. Without getting too technical, the springs provide ongoing support and help maintain the cushion’s taut and tight shape over time, while the feather down is for comfort alone and that ‘sink into’ feeling that we all can’t get enough of.
Is Remington our most customizable sofa? Probably but we offer so many others that have a different set of custom features like nailheads or welts.
Is Remington our most comfortable sofa? Probably but fit is so personal.
