Inspiration 29 December 2017

Fancy a little New Year inspiration?

We’ve given traditional a modern makeover.

As the festivities come to a close with the arrival of 2018, it’s time to reflect on the past year and make plans for the year ahead. It’s at this point we all need a little boost and refresh, and our homes are no exception.

So, to kick off the new year we’ve put together a little winter inspiration with a new look using our Tetrad Harris Tweed Dalmore sofa.

Our Dalmore sofa is available in our Winter Sale, now on in store & online.

Our Tetrad Harris Tweed furniture embodies the beauty of tradition and heritage. Using the finest Harris Tweed and leather combined with a classical design our Dalmore sofa would look right at home in a grand estate setting or a cosy country cottage. But for those of you not completely sold on the traditional style, we decided to mix it up a little, giving the classic qualities of Harris Tweed and chesterfield detailing a New Year refresh.

We achieved this ‘new’ look by introducing a brave and bold colour palette. We used a soft light teal paint to compliment the rich undertones of our tan leather Dalmore sofa.

Using a bold colour on all 4 walls can create a striking contemporary look, a bright colour is also perfect for lifting a piece of tired furniture.

When dressing our look, we aimed to mix winter must-haves with stunning contemporary designs. Take our new scatters for instance, this speckled navy blue cushion ties our colour palette together, as well as adding contrasting texture to our Dunmore Harris Tweed armchair. Combine this scatter with our luxurious fur throw, a nod to the country vibes and you’ve got yourself the perfect winter warmers. 

Our favourite addition to this look, has to be our Asiatic Medallion rug in multi-colour, the contrast of the traditional design and fresh vibrant colours, personifies exactly what this look was about.

To finish off our twist on traditional, we added occasional elements that stood out as merging both the splendour of the old and the trendiness of the new. Take our step shelves for example, the combination of antique finish drawers and black paint relies heavily on the designs of old, however the shelves overall structure is a relatively new style.

If you’re not in the market for a new sofa, why not try this look with a new armchair or footstool, they can work just as well.

So, go on bring some fresh ideas into your home just in time for the New Year. Start 2018 the right way, shop our Winter Sale now
