Inside Tommy Hilfiger's Family Home

Tommy Hilfiger’s Connecticut Home

Back to Back Sofas are a fantastic piece of furniture for rooms that are destined to be a hot spot for gatherings. The unique design offers a sociable seating arrangement and they can be completely tailored to your taste with fabrics and cushion types. George Smith is able to make almost any sofa this way too.

Architectural Digest has done an exclusive insight into Tommy Hilfiger’s suburban home, which features one of our Back to Back Signature Sofas in the main living room space. This exciting suburban interior space that was once in a state of ‘disrepair’, is now easy to mistake for something closer to a historic manor house. 

The house is a local historic landmark so old photos and architectural plans were essential to recreating the original footprint. Since it’s more like an English manor with French details, it was vital to preserve that feeling of being in a European country home. This was achieved with the carved oak panelling, furniture and a patina that is authentic and a bit worn.

Back to Back Sofas

Like any piece of George Smith furniture, they are created by hand and with traditional upholstery techniques. Essentially, the Back to Back Sofa is what it suggests; two sofas joined back to back. These are predominantly finished onsite by our craftsmen due to access and the sheer scale of the piece.

For the internal build and fillings of the sofas, a traditional cone sprung back is used, something which is considered a vital component for all quality traditional upholstery products. This also supports the seat areas in giving even weight distribution across the seat and back. All the areas with springs are covered with hair lock and cotton felt, this also promotes optimum comfort.

The seating area accommodates voluptuous feather filled seat cushions. Our craftsmen will usually apply the final covering of the sofa on site, paying attention to every detail with regards to pattern matching and aligning the two sofas back to back, giving the effect they have been morphed together.
