As the nights draw in and we all spend more time indoors, we can’t stop thinking about ways to add warmth and comfort to our home.
Right now we’re daydreaming about curling up by the fire, settling into the sofa and indulging in a new book. Make the most of autumn nights by updating your living room with opulent upholstery in warm, rich fabrics.
They say there is no such thing as bad weather, just wrong clothes. The same applies for furniture. Investing in a new sofa or statement armchair is bound to make the new season more bearable and certainly more comfortable and stylish.
Made in the UK and Italy, this autumn sees the launch of six new furniture collections and pieces designed by The Conran Shop. You will be spoilt for choice. Meet Clement, Chiltern, Float, Elsa, Elgin and Lavenham.
The Clement collection – including a two-seat sofa, footstool and armchair – is characterised by its loose covering and contemporary twist on traditional country style. The Chiltern sofa features fixed upholstery and cast gunmetal legs, while the generous cushions and walnut legs of the Float range has a distinctly relaxed yet modern feel.
Made in Italy, the Elsa and Elgin collections are the embodiment of refined style thanks to their sleek low profile and use of Italian leather. Elsa, with her zigzag topstitch detailing and cast metal legs, and Elgin with his solid walnut base, are both available in an array of colours and fabrics.
Arguably one of the most popular designs for its easy elegance is the Lavenham collection. Designed and made in the UK with solid hardwood frames, the style features loose covers neatly finished with French seams in Belgium linen.
The Lavenham range features a three-seat sofa, armchair, footstool, love seat and bed and is available in a vast variety of new season colours including our signature aubergine.
Introduce one of these statement-making designs into your home and you’ll be glad for the longer nights, shorter days and prospect of spending extra time indoors.
Prices start from £995. Visit one of our stores or browse online for a closer look.
