Howard Keith by John Home Orange Fabric Diplomat Sofa

£3,276 £4,680

A fantastic example of classic British design, the Diplomat sofa was designed by John Home in 1970 and made by Howard Keith. The company, which was founded in 1933, became synonymous with high quality furniture design.

The Diplomat design quickly became a classic, and was owned by celebrities and royalty making it a highly sought-after piece.

Constructed from a wooden frame sitting on cylindrical chrome legs, the sofa has a low profile with wide armrests, which envelope the seat to create a modernist silhouette.

Fully upholstered in orange fabric, the sofa features two seat cushions and two back cushions which create low and deep comfortable seating.

A true design icon, this sofa will make a fantastic addition to any contemporary living space.
