January really was a long year wasn’t it? Thank goodness THAT’S over! A new month means we’re one step closer to spring and brighter days. We can’t wait for some sunshine.
There is of course one way of brightening things up while we wait for the weather to improve – injecting some colour into our interiors. We love a bold wall colour (walls and ceilings actually!) we know that for some, that feels like a big commitment. If you’re feeling tempted to experiment with brighter hues, there really is no better way to start than with your furniture. We’ve done a round-up of our favourite colourful pieces of furniture that will cheer up the gloomiest of days. To top it off we’ve picked our top 5 cheerfully bright cushions for a super easy way to liven up your existing pieces.
This 3 panelled decorative screen is great for zoning off an area of an open
plan space. Upholstered in a beautiful woven fabric by Lelievre Paris from
their Nature Precieuse collection it will add brilliant warmth and texture to
A daybed in a bold, graphic abstract print complimented by sheepskin
bolsters. A practical piece, that can be used to relax during the day but can
turn into a single bed by night.
Add a touch of elegance to your interior with the plush Monti Stool.
Upholstered in a stunning Kaster Olive velvet and finished with a brushed
gold stainless steel base, the Monti will add a striking contrast to your decor. Also Available in Ochre.
The Rabari collection is created with 100% New Zealand wool, handmade in
India with hand-knotted and hand-woven Sumak techniques. The gorgeous

A first glance reveals a chaotic tangle of colours and shapes that invade the
rug. However, after looking carefully, the imagination of Jaime Hayon springs
to life: turtles, lips, hands, stools, fish, half men–half birds... An excellent
addition to liven up your room. Also available as a Runner.
Our old favourite! Inspired by the Utrecht Armchair by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld
1935. This eye-catching modular style armchair makes a true statement, with
its deep, comfortable seat cushion and the super chunky upholstered arms.
Pictured in a rich burnt umber velvet which transforms the angular chair into
an opulent jewel piece.
A bright and bold cushion is perfect for a low commitment way to add pops of colour to your upholstery pieces. We love to layer them up, clashing patterns and colours are all part of the fun.
