Scandi Farmhouse

Our new spin on the always popular Scandi interior trend will whisk you away to a cosy cabin deep in the heart of a Scandinavian forest. Infused with soft, muted tones and moody depths, its atmospheric, tranquil feel marks a return to slow living for 2020. Soft curves and natural materials are key, while light, delicate accents are used sparingly to create a sense of simplicity and proportion.

We caught up with our interior stylist, Lucy Gough, who helped us create these looks. She says, “To fill your home with hygge levels of cosiness, soft textures and textiles are a must. Opt for a neutral rug and don’t be afraid to add a scatter cushion or two to your sofa or bed – there’s no such thing as too much comfort!”

Place beautifully handcrafted pieces like our oak coffee tables within a tonal, earthy colour palette to renew your living space or explore Ercol’s iconic, exquisitely crafted collection to create a light and airy bedroom.

However you interpret this look, it’s the perfect choice if you’re seeking a relaxing retreat from the outside world.

Velvet Daydreams

An interior design trend for 2020 that needs no introduction, velvet has been having a moment for quite some time and we’re still as in love with it as ever.

This bright and beautiful look blazes with colour and teems with sumptuous softness at every turn. A look to be savoured and admired, it’s a feast for all the senses.

We’ve paired a decadent colour palette of deep crimson, ochre and sapphire with retro velvet furnishings for a fresh take on 60s and 70s interiors. A gorgeous Chesterfield takes centre stage, but a statement corner sofa would work just as well in a family home.

To put your own stamp on this look, Lucy advises, “Colour block with the three primary colours and make plenty of room for metallics too – especially gold accents. A shimmering floor lamp with an eye-catching design or a chrome table lamp make lovely finishing touches.”

Create a flow throughout your home by adding velvet to every room. Shop our roomsets to see how you can style velvet in the dining room, bedroom and living room.

Industrial Revolution

Here we’ve fused minimalist style with some of nature’s finest materials to create this striking feat of interior design for 2020. It takes things back to basics in the best way: it’s bold, unfussy and bang on trend.

Reminiscent of New York lofts and converted warehouses, architectural lines complement solid oak furniture throughout with black metal structural bases and accents contrasted against an exposed brickwork backdrop.

Complement the beautiful grain of a solid oak table with a handcrafted dining bench for a sociable set up or opt for statement hanging pendant lights in a dark tone to create a cosy ambience in the evenings.

Lucy’s top industrial tip is: “Keep things natural with a colour palette of rich browns and dark greens, with light neutral colours saved for a feature wall.”

And, of course, no industrial interior would be complete without a leather sofa. “An aged or distressed leather sofa has real presence in an uncomplicated interior like this,” says Lucy.

Luxe Glamour

This radiant interior trend for 2020 takes luxe glamour to elegant new heights. Made for comfort connoisseurs and luxury design lovers, this look pairs the understated and the luxurious to stunning effect.

Couple showstopping metallic accents with subtle taupes for a setting steeped in sophistication or plump for a marble or glass dining table to give your dining room real ‘wow’ factor.

An icy, alpine colour scheme works well here, and delicate blues in the bedroom soften the look beautifully.

We’ve handpicked pieces to create this look in every room of your home, but the pièce de résistance has to be a sumptuously comfortable, handcrafted bed. The British-made designs of Vispring epitomise luxury comfort and ensure you’ll be sleeping in opulent style all night long.

To complete this look, Lucy explains how important final flourishes can be: “Get creative with your finishing touches – these are what make your home uniquely yours. A striking piece of wall art reflects your personality and showcases your artistic flair while a large mirror can open up your space while showing off your glam credentials.”
