Consort Launches Bespoke Upholstered Seating Collection
Calls for customization from designers and clients convinced bicoastal retailer and interiors firm Consort to develop a bespoke upholstered seating collection. The line encompasses six sofas, two occasional chairs, and an ottoman—all made to order by North Carolina–based Verellen. Constructed of light-treading sustainably harvested wood, recycled coils, and nontoxic glues, pieces are available in custom sizes, wood finishes, and fabrics, as well as in oodles of standard offerings.
Low-armed lounge chair Fernando updates the traditional wingback. A single box-style seat cushion and a solid-wood base distinguish the crisp Pierre sofa. Midcentury-modern design informs the circular Elly ottoman, its tufted cushion a welcome landing spot. And Los Angeles–based Caroline Cecil Textiles’ hand-screened prints in pleasing patterns like Polynesian batik–inspired Ketut are available by the yard as well as on pillows and select upholstered forms—such as the Tear Drop ottoman from Consort’s existing shop offering (here bedecked in Hutan). Cofounders Brandon Quattrone and Mat Sanders hint that casegoods and other furniture are up next.
