Head to furniture store Glasswells and check out the sale. We picked their ‘Leon‘ range as our favourite pick. The various discounted options (sofa, chair, snuggler and footstool) come in many different fabric choices and with the retro-style midcentury silhouette, any piece is a perfect way to update a lounge.
With the Leon, you can design your own sofa collection from a wide range of statement fabrics, a choice of vibrant co-ordinating scatter fabrics and five wood finishes. Four sofa sizes, a snuggler and a standard chair offer flexible ‘seating in style’. An optional headrest can be added by simply slotting in and out of the sofa where and when required. Constructed from traditional hardwood. The seat and arms are upholstered in high quality foam for superior comfort and support. The back cushions are fibre filled and supplied in removable zipped cases.
West Elm always delivers with gorgeous modern takes on Mid-Century furniture and this season is no exeption. With style and quality this sofa ticks all the boxes for Mid-Century lovers.
With tall wooden legs, bolster cushions and distinctive box frame this sofa will sit beautifully in most living rooms. The grey crosshatch finish will blend into a neutral room or equally dress it up with colourful cushions in a brighter space.
The London Transport Museum, known for their incredible homeware ranges and interior styling products, have raised their game with their current moquette fabric (famous from the London tube train seats) sofa which not only comes in all the amazing fabrics from all the various underground tube train lines but also even more patterns – including a truly fabulous leopard print. Custom made to order, one of these investment pieces could be yours for £1964.99.
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.
This year materials become luxurious and opulent with velvet having the biggest influence on designs. More and more velvet is seen in stores on cushions, furniture and soft furnishings. There are are some gorgeous sofas and chairs available bringing a seventies vibe with the soft tactile material. But it doesn’t end there, as velvet is making a comeback in the bedroom, with sumptuous padded headboards and throws.
Sofas are the core piece of furniture to any room, it’s the place to relax and converse so you want it to be as comfortable as possible. What better material to choose than a soft velvet and to really show it off go for a bright colour. Jewel tones look more vibrant in velvet and opting for green, dark purples and blue bring a richer feel and would look great in both dark and light interiors.
Velvet also looks great in softer tones like dusty pink, cream and light grey.
For a more subtle introduction to velvet how about a lamp shade or cushion. A simple drum shade can bring to life an old light or be a great addition to a new one. Velvet cushions are everywhere at the moment in all colours and prints, meaning you can give a little update to a room; finding ones that fit without changing your space.
