House & Gar­den mag­a­zine is cel­e­brat­ing its 70th an­niver­sary by launch­ing its first-ever fur­ni­ture col­lec­tion to­mor­row. ‘Our start­ing point was English coun­try-house style – and the gen­eros­ity of spirit, deep com­fort and sense of pret­ti­ness that goes with it,’ says ed­i­tor Hatta Byng. ‘But change the fab­ric and each of these de­signs could make the chicest of state­ments in a so­phis­ti­cated town­house.’

The col­lec­tion, which in­cludes three so­fas, four chairs and a foot­stool, is in col­lab­o­ra­tion with sofa com­pany Arlo & Ja­cob, with the de­signs con­ceived by the mag­a­zine’s dec­o­ra­tion dire ctor Gabby Deem­ing. ‘I have paid spe­cial at­ten­tion to the de­tails, such as sin­gle seat cush­ions for so­fas, smart painted legs and gen­er­ous pro­por­tions,’ she ex­plains. ‘ With this col­lec­tion, we are of­fer­ing some­thing we gen­uinely love, and that the ma­jor­ity of read­ers can ac­tu­ally af­ford.’

Every piece is made by one per­son from start to fin­ish at Arlo & Ja­cob’s Der­byshire fac­tory, and prices for a sofa start at £1,190. ar­loand­ja­cob.com.
