Now You Can Own the Mysterious Sofa From Harry’s House

A group of Portland designers and Harry Styles fans create a mostly faithful reproduction of the album cover’s now-famous sofa, which is now available in a limited run of 500.

When Harry Styles first teased the artwork for his highly anticipated third album, Harry’s House, the design industry was set abuzz by its upside-down setting. The record pictures the British superstar looking perplexed in a sparsely furnished room that set designers Patience Harding and Molly Hawkins outfitted with Modernist pieces recalling Marcel Breuer’s Laccio table and the 109 Spaghetti lounge chair by Giandomenico Belotti. 

Furniture lovers quickly focused on the room’s mysterious Bauhaus-inspired sofa that eluded immediate identification, with some speculating it was a Milo Baughman piece digitally altered to remove imperfections. Harry’s publicist naturally kept mum, but the internet soon spotted the now-famous sofa at prop furniture purveyor Superhire. One problem: it’s only available for rent. 

That’s changing thanks to a group of Portland-based designers who happen to be big Harry Styles fans. “After reading several articles last spring about the mysterious sofa, we decided to challenge ourselves and recreate it,” Leland Duck told Surface in an email. Teaming up with fellow designer Helen Helfand and expert craftspeople in the Pacific Northwest, the group is soon introducing a limited run of 500 sofas under the name of Your House Couch. The $4,995 sofa is largely a faithful reproduction, though its rusty velvet cushions are tufted in a slightly different style and appear plusher. A portion of sales will support Crafting the Future, which helps connect BIPOC artists with career opportunities.
