DFS Lipgloss Sofa



Celebrate London Fashion Week and make your home fashion-forward
with designer DFS Lipgloss sofa

This season, it’s all about the lips – that’s what we can take from Giles Deacon’s Spring/Summer ‘14 show at London Fashion Week anyway with bold and bright lip motifs printed across a number of garments.

So, it comes as no surprise that the statement limited edition design he has done for DFSSofas this month is also smothered in them. The striking three-seater sofa and footstool from the same collection is scrawled with black, white and orange pop art inspired pouts. Aptly named the ‘Lipgloss’ sofa, it shows how our homes often mimic the runways.

Giles is known for his outrageous designs, with a ‘smashed glass’ dress featuring in his S/S ‘13 ready-to-wear collection, so setting his sights on furniture design could have led to a worrying health and safety issue; smashed glass armrests anyone?

Thankfully this sofa has comfort as a priority, and would certainly pack a punch in the living room, making a focal point in a modern home.

This was Giles’ first high street collaboration for a furniture design, and he claims he wanted to bring great design, a good price and great construction to the masses. The addition of the footstool to the collection was in the hope that it could almost transform the sofa into a ‘giant bed’ – the ultimate in luxury.

He said:

“It has to be comfortable for sure, and have plenty of space, where at all possible.”

With monthly payments possible on the DFS website, this really is an affordable way to add a splash of designer style to your life. Most of us can only dream of affording the couture price tags of London Fashion Week, so this is a great chance to bring the catwalk into your home.

As DFS have 44 years of history behind them, Deacon felt this would be a collaboration to be proud of along with their launch of the DFS Design Foundation in February next year; a £20 000 student bursary scheme to help undergraduate designers progress into a design career.

Deacon will be on the panel of judges to help decide the talented youngster worthy of the prize.
