home: trend [ pouffe ]
It seems the home accessory of the season is the pouffe. Firmly back as a key piece of furniture in a lounge (or any other room) and with floral flouncy ones a distant memory of the 80s; the pouffe is now the perfect accessory to add a splash of colour or pop of pattern into a room.
There’s a plethora to choose from across the high street, designer and online stores and whatever trend you use as your styling guide, there’s a pouffe to suit the look.
We’ve picked a selection of our favourites to suit current trends including – colour pop, embellished, midcentury monochrome, maximalist, traveller and artisan.
Lux, £69 Made.com / Iceberg £110.00 Maison Du Monde / Falun, £194.99 Wayfair

Plants, plants, plants; the urban gardener is still as popular as ever.
Bring the outdoors in with leaf ceramics – add a dash of retro, and you get this great plate from HM. There’s a definite vintage inspiration.
It would look great on a dinner party table or use for nicknacks on a dressing table.

home: favourite thing [ chairs ]
Get nostalgic with these fab retro school chairs with a contempory hand painted stripe. We love chairs and these are great to mixed with other chairs around a dining table, as a desk chair or just in the corner of a room creating a statement.
These sustainably sourced beech wood chairs come with four different coloured stripes. It’s hard to pick a favourite!

home: favourite thing [ sofa bed ]
There are so many great new arrivals appearing online and one of our favourite brands is made.com. We have featured them a lot recently and this is basically because of their great design and prices.
Our latest crush is on the Edwin sofa bed, with its classic vintage design and simple fold-down backrest. Available in three colours this sofa is certainly a winner for those who want a cool daytime sofa, but need a bed for occasional guests staying over.
