We have found some great tutorials to help you create a statement piece for your room, at the same time being practical. Once you have the basic design worked out then you can choose your material or colour to finish the look. Perhaps it’s copper tube that’s takes your fancy or how about a a pole hanging on leather straps.

We spotted this gorgeous DIY project on fallfordiy.com and it’s pretty simple to achieve. These punch rug art works can be hung on the wall or lent on a shelf, either way they look great and will bring interest to a room [ kids & adults ].
The shopping list for this tutorial is quite small – embroidery hoop, yarn, hessian fabric and a punch rug needle – and it is for beginners, so we can all give it a go.
We saw this look grow in popularity last year, and it’s continuing this year. Focusing heavily on independent makers and designers but also handmade, hand woven products.
Move away from mass produced factory homeware and look at handcrafted goods. The detail and time spent making them is what appeals, and every piece becomes unique.
Soft furnishings is a a great place to start with fringes, raw edges and heavy adornment on cushion covers and throws.
Wicker, rattan and woven furniture is having a huge comeback – Habitat has just launched a new collection of rattan furniture, with John Lewis going for a woven look with their range. The Leia range of outdoor dining furniture has a fishermans rope weave on its chairs and sofas.
This woven style extends to pendants lights giving a very relaxed Boho feel. Lots of layered soft furnishings and natural colours. Go as bold or as subtle as you want.
