Meet Astor

By Grace | Feb 25 2013

Our new Astor Sofa has finally arrived - both online and at 77 Wooster. The perfect marriage of masculine and feminine, Christiane says, "it's like a British guy dating a French girl."

The Astor is our neo-traditional take on the Chesterfield: we updated the traditional high back and rolled arms with a low, straight profile and perfectly pleated bolster pillows (see the Wall Street Journal article Supporting Rolls featuring the Astor Sofa). Clean lines and sharp English tailoring showcase the time-honored handiwork of button tufting—even the generous seat and deck are exquisitely buttoned up.

Rich, tonal neutrals highlight the craftsmanship and perfect proportions of this foundation piece. Available in any of our custom upholstery we recommend outfitting Astor with a neutral palette in either our luxurious velvet Banks or linen-like Kendrew fabrics. Both fabrics highlight the impeccably tailored design, while a neutral color fits Astor's sensible character.
