Fit for a King: The Iconic Norton Sofa

This year marks the 10th anniversary of our vivid orange Norton sofa taking centre stage at a prestigious event attended by King Charles. The sofa, renowned for its vibrant design and impeccable craftsmanship, became an iconic symbol of contemporary British furniture. Models posed alongside King Charles, capturing the elegance and importance of sustainable design.
The Significance of UK Wool
The event, for Campaign for Wool, highlighted wool’s superior qualities over synthetic materials. King Charles demonstrated wool’s biodegradability and fire-resistant properties, reinforcing its value in fashion and interior design. Our Norton sofa, with its striking colour and exceptional design, stood as a testament to the innovative use of wool in contemporary furniture.
At James UK, we have always prioritised using high-quality, sustainable materials, and UK wool is at the heart of our production process. Wool’s natural, biodegradable properties make it an ideal choice for creating furniture that is not only stylish but also environmentally friendly. Our commitment to UK wool supports local farmers and promotes the use of sustainable resources in the furniture industry.
As we celebrate this milestone, we look back with pride on our journey and forward with excitement for the future of sustainable, high-quality British design.
