The Parker Knoll Furniture Range
It’s been around in the UK for so long as a brand – 140 years to be exact – that most people, even those not in the least interested in interior design, are aware of Parker Knoll and its reputation for excellence when it comes to luxury furniture and home accessories. Leading the way in the UK when it comes to the design and manufacture of classic and traditional upholstered chairs, sofas and recliners, this highly-respected design company produces contemporary, high-quality, stylish ranges that are unmissable in villas and apartments everywhere.
Today the Parker Knoll extensive workshops are based in Riddings, Derbyshire. It’s a long way from its humble beginnings in a simple workshop in London. It was established by Frederick Parker who executed his plan to sell fine crafted upholstered chairs with British craftsmen. Perhaps the most popular Parker Knoll furniture is the iconic recliner chair. This contained Willi Knoll’s new comfortable spring system, and was the first time such an innovation had been introduced into the interiors market. Over the years the firm has also become increasingly respected for its fabrics; all of which are certainly worth more than a passing glance.
Parker Knoll – Recliner
Masters in the art of the recliner chair, Parker Knoll have perfected their chairs over the years to the extent it would be difficult to surpass them in comfort and style. Classic and elegant, the Parker Knoll Recliner is simply a master in its class. Take the York Manual Recliner, for instance. Its scroll arms and piped cushions add to the elegant symmetry of its mahogany frame (teak, antique walnut and cherry are also available) while there are also lots of leather and fabric choices in which to indulge. For advice on choosing the right leather, please refer to this guide.
Parker Knoll – Swivel Chair
The Parker Knoll Swivel Chair is a stunning piece of furniture in its own right, but most have been designed to match sofas and armchair collections too. A little bit of luxury in your own living room, the swivel chair is another classic that isn’t going anywhere soon. Take the Bradley Swivel Chair for instance – with its fun and funky fabric it would fit into any contemporary environment. Then again, its mahogany frame lends it a certain traditional elegance.
Parker Knoll – Sofas
With a Parker Knoll sofa we’ve all come to expect comfort, quality design and amazing back support. The latest offerings are no different. With fixed back and manual or power recliners in both two and three seater variations there are sofas to suit most homes in the UK today. The Amelie Two-seater Sofa combines a traditional button-back look with clever contemporary curves and modern fabrics.
Parker Knoll – Footstools
Many footstools in the Parker Knoll range have been designed as part of an existing collection; while others are simply eye-catching and functional additions to your sitting room, bedroom or study. Many come with storage options too. The Winchester Footstool is a beautiful and luxurious piece of furniture with an intricate pink pattern on its silky silver base (in the case of the following). A footstool for a decadent bedroom, it can only be described as a well-deserved indulgence.
