Growing in popularity on curtains, cushions, chairs and blankets, boucle is the fabric of choice this season. The intricate woven pattern can be found more and more on homeware, creating a very tactile and comforting finish.

Combine with a nuetral colour pallete allowing the texture to take centre stage. Mix with other soft fabrics like throws and cushions for a cosy autumnal feel.

home: trend [ green & pink ]

This year has seen an array of colour in the home including yellow, blue, berry red, green and pink.

Sometimes a combination of colours seems so random but somehow works and this time round its green & pink. They have had their moment as stand alone accent colours, but now try and mix the two and witness the gorgeous result.

Pale, moss, apple, olive, whatever the shade of green, there is a pink to compliment. Paler shades of pink can look great next to richer greens.

Add some metalics like gold and brass to bring a lux feel, in accessories and chair legs. There are no rules to colour, it’s a very personal choice. We can only inspire and share what we are loving right now, and this colour combination is one of the best.

They say: 

Style, Quality, and Everlasting: The PIB Concept

PIB was founded because we couldn’t find furniture which combined style & quality online. The products were either of bad quality, badly presented or in the middle of long lists with no coherence of styles.
