Alexander & James

Exclusive to Urbano Interiors

A fresh faced designer sofa company, rooted in a Great British furniture heritage. Born of 120 years of specialist knowledge in furniture design, retail and manufacturing, our sofas are created by upholstered furniture experts.

“hello”

from Mr Smith

Britain’s most influential sofa designer, Mark ALEXANDER Smith designs for the way we live. Always ahead of the design trail, he takes inspiration from his travels around the globe. He hand sketches every model to get the balance of form just right and then gets to work with his creative team on the final vision. Northern English roots ensure his down to earth approach to life is reflected in his laid back luxe designs.

THE BRAND

The brand prides itself on its extensive leather library. Using only the best hides, the hand selected leathers are textural and interesting to the touch, soft and buttery, cool and sleek, battered and distressed, lots of choice. And as for the colours! Alexander and James experiment with vibrant shades alongside the latest NEW neutrals, easy to live with greys and refreshed versions of tan and chocolate. Leathers are designed to wear and age perfectly, like a great pair of shoes.

Our Craft

Sofas are hand crafted and made to order from the finest materials, sourced from around the world. Our leathers are natural, have character and age beautifully. All our wood comes from sustainable forests and our shapely legs are hand turned and polished to perfection. Fillings are super soft, mixing feather, foam and fibre. Alexander and James test to the highest British standards.

hand made, only for you

Every sofa is hand crafted and made to order from the finest materials. Expertly hand turned legs and feet, hand tufted buttoning and intricate studding add detail and some of our collections feature 8 way hand tied springs which add comfort and luxury to seats. Feather and fibre blends ensure our sofas are insanely comfortable.

love our natural leathers each one is unique

Our leathers are 100% natural and hand selected from Brazilian and European herds. Every hide is unique and reflects the adventurous life of each cow! Bite marks from buzzy insects, scars from altercations with other wildlife, creases and wrinkles from a life well lived, all show in the leather itself.

velvets with charm cosy british wools lively linens

Our velvets are hand selected for their character and old world charm. Variances in texture and colour add to this vintage quality. Woolly and linen textures can pill and create small balls of fluff like a much loved cardigan. These bobbly quirks are completely natural! It’s part of the charm.
