Brown is the new black.

Sophisticated and stylish, brown is the new colour in town. Cooler than black and infinitely more versatile, brown brings layers of warmth and on trend style to every room and offers a welcome alternative to pared-back minimalism. Here’s how to use brown creatively throughout your home.

Live in luxury with a beautiful brown leather sofa.

In the living room, nothing says luxury quite like a brown leather sofa. Softly sumptuous and with superb cushioning and gorgeous details, a brown leather sofa makes a design statement and there’s no more comfortable place to relax at the end of a busy day. Our brown leather sofas are available in a huge range of gorgeous tones, from tan and taupe to chestnut and cocoa, and in styles that range from wide-armed and contemporary to the classic Chesterfield.

Entertain in style with a marble or wood dining table.

Brown is a wonderful colour for the dining room, partly because there are so many possibilities – walnut, marble, oak, ceramic and more – and partly because it’s one colour that’s able to be both elegantly sophisticated and invitingly warm.

A gorgeous wooden dining table is a great place to start. Or, if you love more contemporary furniture, opt for a marble extending dining table with pedestal base or an industrial dining table that combines natural wood with metal or glass. Balance a lighter or darker brown dining table with dining chairs upholstered in a soft brown fabric or even textured faux leather.



Head to Italy for stylish leather and sophisticated dining.

Brown can be traditionally British – think solid oak furniture and big leather Chesterfield sofas – but this season we’re loving the Italian version of brown. From luxurious leather reclining sofas in espresso or chocolate to high-gloss dining tables with golden brown lacquered or ceramic tops, browse our gorgeous Italian designs with the emphasis firmly on luxury style.



Bring in the cosy with soft brown cushions and rugs.

If you’ve committed to a modern and minimal Scandi-style interior with white or pale grey walls and light-toned furniture, you can still enjoy the warmth and sophistication that brown brings to living spaces with a few carefully chosen accessories. A cosy brown rug will instantly change the mood of a too-cool room and add softness, while cushions in caramel, coffee and taupe will add textural depth.
