A very good quality Knole sofa now upholstered in a fine green silk ribbed velvet.
The Knole Sofa was first made in the 17th century. It is housed at Knole in Kent, a house owned by the Sackville-Wests since 1605 but now in the care of the National Trust. It was originally used not as comfortable sofa but as a formal throne on which the monarch would have sat to receive visitors. It features adjustable side arms and considerable depth of seating, it usually has exposed wooden finials at the rear corner tops, and some exposed wood may be present on the otherwise arms. The arms, more correctly sides, are of the same height. The side arms are tied to the sofa back by means of heavy decorative braid, often with an elaborate tassel.
Height 35.00 inch (88.90 cm)
Width 56.00 inch (142.24 cm)
Depth 33.00 inch (83.82 cm)
