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.
