Regardless of where Bolia’s designers are based, they are all equally passionate about Scandinavian design, natural materials, and environmentally friendly projects.

Materials Used – What Makes A Bolia Sofa


Bolia provides a wide variety of vibrant textiles and supple leathers, from plush velour to durable wool. The textiles are made from durable and simple fibers made from polyester and nylon. For hot and humid environments like Singapore, these fabrics are prone to color change when illuminated by direct light coming from various angles. Bolia sofas also feature a mixture of wool, cotton, and linen in their sofa upholstery. However, it is worth noting that Bolia sofas should be kept in an air-conditioned environment as they may trap heat in the Singaporean weather.

There are two types of sofa cushion/fillings available at Bolia, cold foam, and down feather. The contemporary designer brand also uses three types of leather. They can deteriorate brought on by age, mechanical stress, and wear and tear, fading is one of the primary sources of damage to the leather. Therefore, this means that the color of the leather would likely start to fade from light and UV radiation.


Maintenance and Final Verdict


You are advised to change the cushions frequently to guarantee even wear and use because the upholstery on Bolia sofas will alter over time. Bolia sofas made from the foam will maintain their shape for a long time since the foam-crushing process ensures that all air bubbles are homogeneous. Most of the sofa designs do not have removable covers. Thus, it is imperative to maintain your sofa in the best possible condition. Frequent vacuuming uses a soft nozzle and low suction to vacuum it so that the filling won’t shift or unintentionally remove the fibers.

Bolia provides a great collection for young families or working couples seeking elegant and contemporary sofas at more reasonable and affordable prices. It is a great choice to start with for your peaking interest in luxury sofas. They also provide a 10-year warranty on all of their sofa collection designs.

Maintenance and Final Verdict


For Juul sofa pieces, when there is latex-foam filler underneath the upholstery, never use stain removers. Instead, you can use foam cleaners with proper directions from us. The sofas at Juul have removable covers that can be dry-cleaned for thorough sanitation when needed. For the sofas with leather upholstery, wipe the whole surface with a soft cloth followed by a slightly wrung-out cloth dipped in demineralized or cold-boiled water.

Top Renowned Danish Design Brands offering Scandinavian Sofa:

Aton Sectional Sofa Eilersen, Danish Design Co Singapore


The highly respectable and renowned Danish Brand Eilersen offers top-tier sofa designs in the European market. Eilersen has been a design icon and a true contender in the industry since 1895. The rich history and origins of the sofa design brand started with the founder, Niels Eilersen, the best coachbuilder in Denmark. When the coach-building industry plummeted, the founder pivoted Eilersen into their next adventure in crafting furniture in 1902. They began by producing blind frames for upholstered sofas and secure their growth in the furniture market from then on.

Exquisitely Handcrafted For Opulent Homes

Every sofa design created by Eilersen will look gorgeous in any home, regardless of where it is situated or how it is put together.


Materials Used – What Makes An Eilersen Sofa


Sofas crafted by Eilersen are made of natural materials like cotton, linen, and wool because they are both enduring and comfortable. There are no two identical leather hides, and Eilersen’s best-entrenched aniline leather is chrome- and vegetable-tanned for optimal suppleness and texture. Thread quality is essentially a make-or-break factor for the Eilersen couches. The spider silk-thin strands that make up an Eilersen sofa are left unnoticed. The strength and flexibility of the fabric are crucial since exceptional upholstery depends on these threads to keep itself together.

A large amount of fiberfill gives an Eilersen sofa a strong and “full” appearance. It provides buoyancy and optical density and covers armrests, front panels, sides, and backs of all sofas. The down feathers in an Eilersen sofa are handpicked and must be pure, odorless, and allergy-free. Each feather must also be uncut and no shorter than 60mm based on their uncompromised standards.


Maintenance and Final Verdict


Eilersen creates magnificent, long-lasting sofas that last a lifetime. Your designer furniture can last longer if it receives the proper care and upkeep. Their sofa pieces are also produced with labels on all their fabrics and materials, allowing you to change them as you please. Keep your upholstered Eilersen sofas away from heat sources and direct sunshine. Occasionally, carefully and gently vacuum the leather surface at decreased suction using the appropriate mouthpiece.

In every product Eilersen produce, they combine the best components of fine materials with a proud legacy of craftsmanship. Eilersen sofa pieces exude minimalism, functionality, and character. After several years of use, true quality becomes apparent in Eilersen sofa pieces. When you experience Eilersen sofas, you experience divine comfort coupled with remarkable Danish Design embodied in a piece of furniture.


Chieftan Sofa House of Finn Juhl, Danish Design Co Singapore

House of Finn Juhl


Finn Juhl began his career into furniture design from scratch, much like other early modernists of his day. Seventy years later, in 2001, Finn Juhl’s widow Hanne Wilhelm Hansen granted House of Finn Juhl sole rights to produce and reintroduce his sculptural and recognizable furniture designs, such as the France Lounge Chair and Poet Sofa. More than 50 classic timeless masterpieces make up the exclusive Finn Juhl collection, which is produced under strict quality control standards and with the utmost respect for the original history.


Revived Timeless Masterpieces


When relaunching Finn Juhl’s furniture, the predecessors are extremely critical of what they do because there is no bottom line when it comes to Finn Juhl. Both the older original works from his home, private collections, or museums, as well as the original drawings, serve as the foundation for their collection pieces. While Finn Juhl’s innovative and understated works on paper amply demonstrate his brilliance, the drawings also allowed them to follow his progress from initial idea to final visualization.

Finn Juhl does not tolerate compromise in selecting the best materials in any situation. The sofas produced by the House of Finn Juhl use the same principles and materials as when it was first created. Finn Juhl’s signature method makes it possible to achieve a distinctive finish and fine details. They selectively choose and source the finest natural pine, walnut, and oak wood that promises grace and endurance for generations.

In their upholstery work, House of Finn Juhl uses high-quality leathers that are essential to completing the quality of Finn Juhl’s furniture. Thus, they only collaborate with competent partners who provide them. They feature six types of leather in various stunning colours that make their sofa designs pop in your home decor or blend with your living room design. House of Finn Juhl carries over seventy textiles including their “Watercolour” textile collection that is of the highest quality. They are working to increase the durability and quality of the fabrics while reducing their harmful effects on the environment.


Maintenance and Final Verdict


Solid wood furniture has a beautiful and special patina over time when well-maintained. It’s advised to avoid placing solid wood furniture too close to heaters and leaving it in the sun for an extended amount of time. Dust accumulation on upholstered furniture will wear down the fabric and worsen the indoor climate on their sofas. It is highly recommended to use a clean mouthpiece and periodic vacuuming, ideally once every week, on your upholstered furniture.

The legacy of Finn Juhl is priceless, and there are countless other original designs in the collection for which we have grand ambitions in the years to come. The distinctive and beautiful design of Finn Juhl’s sofas is well known and became iconic because it stood out from the other traditional chairs that were used at the time. Finn Juhl ignited the love for Scandinavian furniture that swept like wildfire across the United States in the 1950s and ’60s. In the true essence of appreciating authentic Scandinavian design, a sofa piece from Finn Juhl would absolutely be a perfect head turner to have in your home.
