Position: Furniture Specialist
Item: Halo Tribeca Sofa
Why I love this item:
My favourite leather sofa is the Tribeca by Halo (and a close second is the armchair from the same range!).
I really like the style of this sofa because it always looks tidy no matter how many people have been relaxing on it. It looks great when you get up in the morning – no cushions to puff.
The history and story of the brand is another reason I picked this sofa. Halo originally began life as Halo Antiques in 1976 and was run by Major Philip Oulton. Today, his love of beautiful furnishings has been passed onto his sons, Tim and Charlie, who now run the company and continue the family tradition of supplying high quality, beautiful furniture inspired by the company’s British heritage.
I also love that Halo handcraft all their products and use only the best techniques and fabrication. They are renowned for their top quality leathers and the Tribeca sofa is no exception.
Halo leather hides are hand selected and only the top 5% of hides are used on Halo leather furniture. The pigments are worked into the hide, rather than sitting as a coating on top of it, which gives the leather a warm and buttery touch. The leather upholstery on the Tribeca will wear in, not out. In fact, it will only get more beautiful with age!
