New upholstered seating collection offers contemporary edge

Lyndon Design’s recent collaboration with leading British designer, Peter Emrys-Roberts of ERA, has resulted in an upholstered seating collection named Romba. Featuring a modern rectilinear design, this collection is accentuated by colourful upholstered blocks and provides a contemporary and striking seating solution.

Exploiting a vocabulary of simple forms and materials, Romba provides the specifier with tremendous scope and choice. Featuring armchair and sofa options, the collection may be arranged into a variety of asymmetrical and symmetrical compositions to suit each particular scheme. To overcome the restrictions that designers face when looking to inject colour into a scheme, as loose cushions are not always an appropriate option, Romba facilitates the controlled addition of colour or accent fabrics to the ends of its bolsters, conveniently the same shape as cushions.

Whilst boasting Lyndon Design’s handcrafted and superior timber frame structure, the emphasis is on the interplay of upholstered blocks and as such, the legs are discretely positioned underneath so as not to detract from the overall design.

Equal attention is paid to the aesthetic of front, rear and sides of Romba’s design - an important feature for lobbies - and courtesy of the generous armrests that are as tall as the seat back, this striking design creates a constant site line within a space. For added versatility, Romba is available in a wide range and combination of fabrics and colours.

Commenting on his latest collaboration with Lyndon Design, designer Peter Emrys-Roberts says: “Romba is designed to offer specifiers a compact, versatile seating solution that brings visual impact and comfort to a variety of commercial interiors. The ability to include feature fabric squares in the ends of the bolsters brings a playful and relaxed feel to an otherwise formal and structured design.”

Lyndon Design’s Managing Director, Tim Armitt comments: “We are delighted to work with such an eminent British designer and to merge the unparalleled handcrafted manufacturing expertise for which Lyndon Design is renowned, with such an arresting and challenging design. Romba will sit well amongst Lyndon Design’s burgeoning collection of seating.”
