2009 has certainly been the year for the revival of the Union Jack. Award-winning furniture designer, Jimmie Martin has used the motif in several of his designs, including the Orange Union Jack Sofa.

The sofa consists of a distressed silver leaf frame, seat upholsted in strips of black leather and a backrest painted with a Union Jack, where the parts that are ordinarily white, are painted in orange. It is certainly a striking piece, although the sofa doesn’t look the comfiest, so it would perhaps be more suitable for a hotel lobby or bar, rather than your lounge.

It costs £3000 and can be ordered online through My Deco.

One thought on “Orange Union Jack Sofa by Jimmie Martin

  1. Love this twisted take on the Victorian settee…Throw in a little Hollywood Regency, some retro-Camaro and suddenly my inner Anglophiliac is trying to convince me that, yeah, I might actually have a need somewhere in my life for a bright orange, burnished silver, black leather sofa.
