Clean-Lined Comfort: Design-Led Pieces from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams

March 26, 2020

When we’re considering whether or not to bring something into our respective houses (and apartments), we ask three questions. Does it serve a purpose? Is it well-made? And is it design-worthy? (Our ethos, after all, is after William Morris: everything must be both beautiful and useful.)

As for the furniture from North Carolina-based Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, it’s yes to all of the above. Since their founding in 1989, the US-based company has not only made it their mission to create and source pieces of superior craftsmanship, but also to take a design-led approach to every sofa, table, and swivel chair. The second- and third-generation upholstery makers in their North Carolina factory hand-craft each piece (you can read more about that here), and the company considers them “artisans of comfort”—ensuring each piece is as good-looking and beautiful as it is well-made and easy to sink into.

Case in point: These urban loft-inspired furnishings would look sleek and modern in a city apartment—or, really, anywhere design-led comfort is in order. Take a look at a few pieces we’re admiring—plus some of the company’s classics.

For the Kennedy Left Sectional, the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams team took one of their classic styles—the Kennedy Sofa—and turned it into a sectional. Set on tall wood legs, it features modern grid tufting, is well padded for comfort, and is dressed here in Sunbrella performance fabric. Alongside is the Melrose Square Cocktail Table and the Supernova Swivel Chair in Moore & Giles’ Mont Blanc Mist leather.

The Dr. Pitt Seven-Piece Sectional Sofa, pictured here in a soft Sherpa upholstery, is completely modular and can be pulled apart or pushed together to create different configurations. You can also design a sectional of any size to suit your space.

The company’s Emerson Round Dining Table—part of the new Emerson dining table collection—features open-grain oak veneers and brushed brass accents. Around it are the Ada Side Dining Chairs in a Sunbrella fabric called Costa-Blush. Overhead is the brass and smoky glass Savoy Chandelier.

The Gigi Sofa—shown here in slate velvet—offers a modern feel to a traditional silhouette, with comfortable plush cushions, French seams, and tall tapered legs for a clean look. It’s available in hundreds of fabrics and leathers and two widths, and can also be fitted with a fabric skirt for a more traditional look. It pairs well with the Addie Cocktail Table in a hand-applied, brushed-metallic finish—this one is pewter—and black-glass top.

An example of their attention to detail: The Carson Sectional has generous, 30-inch-wide cushions and a relaxed, angled back to make it extra comfortable. It’s also modular, handcrafted, eco-friendly, and available in over 6 fabrics and leathers and over  wood finishes. Nestled in the middle is the Vienna Round Cocktail Table, shown here with a marble top and pewter base.

Good-looking and versatile, the new Landry Sleeper comes three ways—with a diamond-tufted back, a clean-lined plain back, or a channeled back (shown here)—and the fold-out mattress has a resilient CertiPUR-US foam core and plush Serene foam topper. At right is the ‘70s-inspired Kirby Chair in soft Sherpa fabric.

The iconic, modern Major Chairs are comfortably angled and clean-lined, and are available in fabric or leather, a polished stainless or brushed brass base, and armless or with Midcentury-style wood-capped arms.
