home: trend [ sofa beds ]

Gone are the days when sofa beds looked like sofa beds, the extra chair in the corner of a room or in the office that just didn’t sit right with everything else!

With demand for adapatable furniture that looks good, and the fact that we want ease when pulling out a sofa bed for unexpected guests, rather than a hassle, brands have starting offering us much better products.

Wayfair / West Elm

Head to Ikea for an array of good looking day bed / sofa beds that work just as well in an office space / spare room as they do in a living room. With more and more fabric choices and colours there is no reason your main sofa can’t be a bed too.

Day beds are also increasing in popularity making for a cosy sofa to curl up on and read a book and when needed, with one simple move you have a bed.

The sofa bed is here to stay!

Gentle soft palette, bringing the outdoors in and layering botanical patterns but breaking up with stretches of plain pale colours to stop it becoming too busy.

Use light mustards, greens, mauves and white together with botanical pale prints.

This look is calming and beautiful for a bedroom or lounge.

Add to this look with mango wood, rattan or white painted wood furniture. It’s a great idea to search eBay or furniture charity shops for pieces to suit the look, but Urban Outfitters, La Redoute and Maison Du Monde all have vintage style rattan and wood options.

Available across the high street and quite a timeless trend.

Launched online in 2009, Winter’s Moon is a curated collection of colourful vintage, modern and handmade homeware. Based in Chichester founder Julia Grant has created a glorious online store with lighting, furniture, accessories and prints.

Everything has vivid colour and pattern and we particularly love the floral design found on their lampshades and cushions.

Colour and pattern just make us happy, and this is reflected in our collection which changes often, with many items designed in-house and hand made here in the UK just for Winter’s Moon

If you are in Chichester be sure to pop by the studio or head to wintersmoon.co.uk

Across the high street homeware stores, and online, there’s a huge amount of homewares inspired by Native American tribal patterns.

The colours are strong but not too bright and these homewares sit well in a predominantly neutral tone interior. Cream or white walls and floors, lots of natural wood and then texture and pattern from all the gorgeous rugs, throws and wall hangings. It’s a truly ‘traveller’ and earthy trend that creates warm, timeless style and feel to a room, and can be added to with trinkets and paraphernalia from travels.
