The Nova XL  is a new and improved version of the Nova 1081 cabinet with a few extra details... Threre is plenty room to use and store both your sewing machine and overlocker. The transparent storage bins allow you to see your items, they are removeable too if required! Need even more storage? You can add the Rolla storage unit to match this model! The cabinet doors have large storage buckets which can swivel outwards, making it easier to grab your tools.

Another new feature about the NOVA XL, is the sturdy, supported work area which is situated behind the machine, preventing needle drag which can occur whilst sewing larger products. It will also ease the stress and tension out of your shoulders and neck when working on large projects for a long time! It is easily stored away when it is not needed, the double gate leg design is sturdy and gives maximum support. 

The NOVA XL cabinet uses the maxi inset aperture, which means the maximum gap or appture space for your sewing machine is approx 615 x 330mm with the 1942 inset Nova XL fitting. A feature we love about this cabinet, is it uses the inset type filler plate to give a superior leveled surface, whilst working with your sewing machine in the flat bed position.

This cabinet has been fitted with the Horn Maxi air-lifter (#1942) which is able to fit normal size and larger, longer armed machines too! A NEW feature is the extra support arm for the right hand work surface! The Nova XL is fitted with the 3 step ush down release sir-lifter mechanism, a quick push down will move your machine from the storage area to the flatbed free-arm positions!

The Nova XL arrives fully assembled and includes delivery, insert and the longer air-lifter

The 3 step air-lift system, suitable for domestic makes of sewing machines, brings your machine to the desired position.

It comes in a vast range of colours, the Nova XL cabinet is crafted in White, Weathered Oak, American Grey Oak and Beech.

American Grey Oak Beech Weathered Oak White

    My husband treated me for Christmas and birthday and the best gift ever. We are downsizing and needed something to allow me to sew in spare bedroom which is compact. The cabinet is lovely and will last me the rest of my life. It is an expensive item but for someone with a sewing hobby , well worth it. Delivery was much slower than anticipated, due to Covid 19 but worth the wait.

    I have had my Nova for 16 years and I still get the same thrill when I open it up to use it that I did when I opened the box the day it arrived, and it still looks like new. It is a total quality piece of furniture, hiding the secrets of my sewing machine, overlocker and all my haberdashery in something that looks like a high class sideboard. The gas lift is a dream to operate and the flatbed insert fits perfectly around my sewing machine (and you can order a replacement if you change your machine). The height is perfect to sit at. It holds a lot of items in well thought out bins, and the drawer is roomy. It was delivered and installed by Horn - the fact they still sell the same model today is testament to the company and its quality. The price has increased over the years so I would say don't look at this as an expensive extra but as an investment - if you take good care of it it will give many years of excellent service.

    This sewing machine cabinet is absolutely amazing. It is expensive, but the quality of the craftsmanship is superb. I ordered the light oak which blends in nicely with Next office-type furniture which is also in the room. I am using my sewing machine more now because it is so easily accessible. Space was of an issue when deciding which cabinet to buy. However, the cabinet folds away into such a compact space, and when extended I have far more space to work at than I ever did at my dining table. It is a perfect height to work at, and the fact the sewing machine can be used flat bed with the supplied custom insert, or free arm is fantastic. The lift system is easy to use, with just a press down to raise the machine up to working height. I love the storage in this cabinet - everything I need is close to hand and I am using the cupboard and drawer space for fabric, patterns and books. The cabinet took about 3 weeks to arrive direct from Horn. I was telephoned a few days in advance with a date and given a more specific time on the day. Jeff, the Horn driver, took the cabinet up to the room, unpacked it, screwed on the castors and adjusted the lift position to suit my machine. He demonstrated how to use the lift system. This is service that is hard to find nowadays. I would thoroughly recommend this Horn cabinet to anyone.
