The classic Clarence collection of upholstered armchairs and sofas has been extended with a new contemporary design, the Clarence Fluted.


The Clarence Fluted, is a modern and contemporary take on the traditional Chesterfield design. The collection features the characteristic roll arms and low back of the iconic Chesterfield design but has an elegant, fluted back and arms for a cleaner, softer look.


All of Shackleton’s upholstered furniture is handmade at our factory in Yorkshire. Our talented craftsmen and women tailor each piece of furniture using time-honoured skills and techniques to achieve to the highest levels of comfort and quality. Our design and development teams have enhanced the classic chesterfield look and improved the comfort by introducing additional traditional furniture making techniques.


Gill Reed, Head of Creative at Shackletons comments; “We feel it is important not to lose sight of furniture classics, so with this in mind we designed the Clarence Fluted collection as an evolution of the classic Chesterfield. The extended range provides interior designers the opportunity to specify a statement piece of furniture that is contemporary and highly appropriate to a wide range of healthcare, senior living environments and modern design schemes.”


Alongside, the fluted design, the original Clarence collection with the deep buttoned back and feature studding has been updated to incorporate additional design features, including button detailing to the border and an extra rolled upholstery feature under the seat cushions.
