Not all of us can fit an eight-seater dining table into our homes, or an L-Shaped sofa big enough for a family of four, plus friends – and pets! That’s why this new collection from WTP, The Furniture Company is worth a view. It takes into account high-end style, but has many pieces that could fit into a smaller apartment, and often with an attractive price tag to boot. We asked director Naazli Somjee to talk us through the ins and outs of the new range.
Tell us about the new furniture collection.
We’ve focused on smaller proportions while still using elegant fabrics, so even in a smaller apartment you can have that modern Italian-feel L-shaped sofa. The pieces look high end, but they’re affordable, and yet we haven’t compromised on quality. This is all part of a ready-to-go line, like a pret-a-porter line in fashion. There’s no bespoking required.
Explain the thinking behind the furniture designs.
The designers at WTP sit down with various regional designers to discuss shape, size and material, so it’s a collaborative effort. The trends are currently towards velvets and very luxe-looking fabrics in rich jewel tones, hence we have some really funky purple and lime green armchairs.
Do these suit a particular style taste?
I think the range fits a very big demographic in terms of age, property type and gender. Whether you like Pop Art or neutrals, or you’re adventurous or not, it should have something for everyone.
What’s their price point?
The beds are all under $1,900, and the sofas are all less than $4,000, even for an L-shaped sofa from this range.
