It’s 1998, the year Google was born, Titanic was the 'king of the world', and the Spice Girls racked up their eighth number one single in a row. It was also the year the Delta revolutionised Australian furniture with a fully modular design built for flexible living.
The simplicity of Delta’s modular design presented a solution of flexibility and adaptability as no other furniture had. Here was a sofa that could be configured to suit any space, changing seamlessly into numerous configurations, from a three-seater sofa to a chaise lounge and even a queen size bed.
Delta II launched in 2005, refining the best-selling design with hidden storage. Delta II gained celebrity status when it was used for several prominent Hollywood events. American’s admired Delta II for the sofa’s simplicity, comfort and flexibility – the exact same qualities have made Delta a best-selling sofa in Australia for many years.
Fast forward to today, the original design has evolved into Delta III, further refining twenty years of design innovation and offering even greater flexibility.
Delta III retains the original design's much-loved flexibility, easily adapting to different spaces and changing lifestyles. Optional Smart Pockets™ provide convenient easy to reach storage for remotes and mobiles and can be used to add a range of accessories, including side tables and shelves with optional wireless charging, Sonos speaker brackets, and an LED reading lamp.
Delta III includes the option of generous under-seat storage, making it easy to stow away items when they are not needed. This is especially useful for storing away bedding and blankets when Delta III converts into a luxurious bed.
As David King says, ‘From the beginning, we weren't content to just make ordinary furniture. We wanted to design better furniture … when you sit down on King furniture it's almost magical, it's a feeling of weightlessness.'
With sustainability in mind, Delta III’s components are designed to deliver a lifetime of unsurpassed comfort and support. The engineered steel frame supports the Postureflex® suspension system and provides the strong foundation that allows every King sofa to be easily reconfigured. KingCell® high tensile compression springs work in harmony with Postureflex® to ensure seat cushions maintain an even firmness while Ultradown® back cushions gently envelop the body in a cocoon of luxury.
The iconic Delta design extends to an outdoor collection. Finished in luxury WeatherWeave ®, Delta Outdoor includes optional storage and the flexibility to be configured into multiple settings, including a sunlounger.
The ability of Delta to adapt to different spaces, both inside and out, underscores the versatility of the design. In the words of King brand ambassador Neal Whitaker, “Delta is a classic piece of Australian designed furniture… for a design still to be a best-seller after 20 years is pretty good going. A completely different generation is now buying Delta III. That's pretty damn special.”
