Knole settee: where to buy, and/or have one made?

We would very much like to find a Knole settee*, new or used, or antique, for our farm-house living room.  Happy to refurbish if necessary, and priced accordingly, of course.Any idea who sells them, or makes them?  Ideally within swinging distance of Eastern Ontario, but anywhere in Canada, or even the Eastern Seaboard, would be good, as we've had no luck finding one remotely locally so far!*This is what a Knole settee looks like, and there are many variations, but basically, luxuriously comfortable, with high back and sides which are tied up with ropes, and can be lowered for comfort.  Seem to be more popular in the UK, where they originated in the 16th century, so it's a design that's stood the test of time!http://www.google.ca/search?rlz=1C1SKPL_enCA407CA407&q=knole+settee&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1280&bih=685
