Our furniture line with Interior Define launches today, and you can see the whole thing right here! When they asked us what we’d like to call the collection, it took us hardly any time to land on “Charly.” Not only does the unisex name describe the style of our collection–the perfect blend of masculine straight lines and feminine soft, rounded cushions, but naming it after our big, gentle giant of a dog is also a nod to the pet and family friendly nature of the fabrics and the big, cozy factor that’s perfect for snuggling up. Meet Charly:
Shown in Interior Define’s Rain color here (which is actually the same color we ordered for our own home–I’m obsessed with this pretty slate blue), but it’s available in 70 colors and so many fabrics, with three different leg options, and just like all of their other collections, this sofa can be ordered in nearly any size to fit your space. There’s also 3 different Charly sectional configurations (!!!), and a chair!, and in the next couple weeks, we’ll be adding more pieces to the line including a sleeper sofa.
This collaboration has been nearly a year of designing and learning and stretching ourselves. We knew nothing about furniture design before Interior Define asked us about collaborating with them a year ago, and we are feeling nothing but gratitude to their amazing team for trusting us so much, letting us have so much creative freedom and for being patient and taking us under their wing when we were learning so many new terms.
We were meticulous about seat height and arm height and the proportions of the bottom rail to the cushion depth. We took the approach of wanting the design to work for you, in your space. This is a sofa that can be placed into almost any room and work with a variety of home styles, instead of requiring you to change everything else for the sofa. And of course, how about that bench cushion! It’s our favorite part and we can barely wait to all snuggle up a little closer as a family.
Another thing we took great care on was the depth. We love a deep sofa and really wanted this one to be lounge-y and cozy and deep (It has 27″ seat depth), but we also know not everyone is over 6 feet tall, like we are. So, we added these side lumbar pillows that pull double duty when you want to cheat the back forward. Really, we had our moms in mind. :)
We visited Interior Define’s headquarters in May, and they filmed a short 2 minute video talking more about the process and the experience. You can watch the video and see more details by visiting Interior Define’s landing page for the Charly line right here.
Please, please do! They are honestly one of the greatest companies we’ve ever worked with, and they have a vision we are so happy to be a part of. And hey, even if you aren’t currently in the market for new furniture, we’d still love for you to take a look at what we and our friends at Interior Define have created.
We’re just in love with how it turned out and know you will too. And should you decide this is the right sofa for you, we’d love to see pictures of you living with it in your home–so don’t hesitate to tag us.
