From stylish storage solutions to our impeccably crafted Padstow Sofas and Armchairs, our furniture is versatile, comfortable and timelessly chic – perfect for every room in your home. We caught up with Alice Emanuel, our junior furniture buyer, to discover more about our stunning new Spring range, and what makes The White Company collection so unique.
What inspired this season’s new Spring furniture collection?
For Spring 2016, we wanted to introduce beautiful yet functional pieces that fit easily around you and your family’s everyday lifestyle. Our main focus was comfort and quality, from the sumptuously deep seats on our Padstow Sofas to the versatility of the Oak Butler’s Collection.
What are the key new pieces for customers to look out for this season?
The hand-crafted Padstow range, our fabulously roomy Oak Dining Table and our brand-new rug collection. We love the contemporary feel of the Rye Diamond Rug – it looks so striking and feels really soft under foot.
Tell us a little bit more about the new Padstow Collection and what makes it so unique.
Brand new for Spring, the Padstow collection features two sofas, a footstool, and my personal favourite, The Snuggler. Like an oversized armchair, it’s perfect for one or two people to cosy up in and has deep seats for the ultimate in relaxation. All of the covers are easy to remove and can be dry cleaned, while the cushions are foam with a feather wrap, meaning you get the comfort of a feather cushion without having to plump them up. The collection is also handmade exclusively for us in the UK, using the highest-quality 100% cotton that will last and last.
What is your favourite piece from the Spring collection and why?
For me, it has to be the Padstow Sofa and the Hampton Wool Rugs. The sofa is truly one of the most comfortable things I have ever sat on – when I was developing it, I didn’t ever want to go back to my desk. The Hampton rugs are all hand-braided and super-soft – perfect for adding warmth to your living room.
What makes The White Company’s furniture so special and long-lasting?
When we are developing a range, we always focus on the quality first and foremost. The finish will always be the best we can afford. We’re obsessive about the details: each piece is checked by the buying and technical teams three or four times before we allow stock into our warehouse – we only accept perfection. In addition, our mattresses have a 10-year guarantee, and all of our beds and sofa frames are made from solid hardwood for longevity.
How can our customers update a room in their home for Spring with just one piece of standout furniture?
Our lovely new Butler’s Side and Tray Tables are statement pieces that can change any room in your home without spending thousands of pounds. The tray table is so versatile – you can use it as a serving table in your living room, or take off the removable tray and use it for breakfast in bed at the weekend. I have the Oak Side Table at home, and everybody always comments on it when they come round.
