Creating solid wood lounge furniture is a great challenge. It requires a delicate balance between highlighting lumber and craftsmanship, while still providing alluring comfort that makes you want to sit – and not get up. Over the past several months our Design Team, led by Taryn and Tenzin, created the Clyde Sofa and Clyde Lounge Chair. These pieces are uniquely different from our other lines, but still provide the timeless beauty and exacting quality that holds up to our lifetime warranty.

The design intent behind the Clyde line is to focus on the incredible richness and grain of our wood material while highlighting time-honored craftsmanship techniques. The large expanses of solid wood throughout allow the cleanest and most character-rich lumber to shine, and are miter wrapped around the sides and back for a clean finished appearance. In response to the crisp edges of the frame, we use cushions with more loft, softer edges and inviting texture. Deep seating makes Clyde perfect for long book sessions or cozy movie nights. Although naturally modern, Clyde can work its way into almost any style living room through thoughtful material selections.
Both pieces are available in any of our six standard wood species. The sofa and lounge chair are currently featured in Eastern Walnut at our Woodstock showroom, and in Cherry at our downtown Portland showroom.
