The Winchester sofa is a new take on a formal typology, with an upholstered frame separate from the seat and back cushions. New York based American designer David Weeks has created a modern look by the use of extended pleats on the seat and back to give the cushions their tension. Made in Norfolk, England.
With the addition of small unconventional details, Weeks has created a design of great elegance and style. His un-prescriptive approach to creating objects is a good fit for upholstery design, where the nature of the materials require a flexible and progressive mindset.
