If you have a small space that regular sofas just won’t fit or need a little extra seating for a lounge, try a snuggler sofa which is a small but perfectly formed mini sofa.

We love this Orla Kiely Mimosa Snuggler design available from Barker & Stonehouse for the reduced price of £699 (was £839) and it can be bought in a choice of nine fabric colours.

Bauhaus is a movement of art and design that has influenced, created and set a precedent for such a huge amount of incredible design since its founding in 1919.

Its style and ideas can be seen in homeware, furniture, pattern design, prints, and interiors throughout the decades and is very recognisable.

‘The Staatliches Bauhaus, commonly known as the Bauhaus, was a German art school operational from 1919 to 1933 that combined crafts and the fine arts, and was famous for the approach to design that it publicized and taught. The Bauhaus was founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar.

Its a strong look with colour and line and can be styled quite sparce or detailed and still achieve that confident Bauhaus feeling.

Create with block colour and simple pattern of the era and furniture which creates lines and forms.

Search eBay and other auctions and fairs for true pieces or head to the high street for modern versions and creations. You don’t have to look far with current high street brands to find pieces indicative of the style and design.

Keep walls and floors plain with detail in the fixtures and furniture. There’s a strong emphasis on smoked grey glass, mirrored surfaces, mat colour and keep a space light and airy. Architecture would have favoured high wide glazing and open plan living – popular and on trend in today’s building work.
