All are available in a stunning array of colours, ranging from understated neutrals to bold statements. Define your style and find the option for you.
Alexander & James sofa frames are made from rubberwood, a robust and ethically sourced timber. Rubberwood is a hardwood with a medium density. They are sturdy, strong and great to work with. Rubberwood timber has many uses throughout its life. During its adolescent stage, rubberwood produces a natural latex. Their latex is used worldwide for rubber-based products. At 26-30 years old, the trees reach their maturity and stop producing latex. From here, they are cut down for industrial use.
Alexander back their rubberwood sofas with an impressive 10-year guarantee. All wooden legs are hand-turned from solid wood and come in a range of classic finishes too. Choose from a variety of weathered, glazes, and dark wax finishes.
Alexander and James incorporate a divine mix of feather, foam, and fibre filling in their seats. Together with soft heavenly comfort, the filling provides ample support. They begin with a core layer of foam, which is wrapped in feather, fibre, or both. Alexander and James use duck feathers. This is because of their natural curvature, which inhibits them from lying flat, leaving your seats plump for longer.
