Over to you Sarah and Emma…

No.1 Duresta

Duresta Hopper is available in-store & online. Selection of fabrics available to view in-store.

Duresta is an established British brand constantly evolving to suit our modern needs.  Their ethos is Quality, Creativity, and Craftsmanship which we stand by ourselves.

We can confidently endorse Duresta for their style, comfort, and durability.  The Hopper sofa with its simple lines and beautifully balanced design creates a smart contemporary silhouette to suit all our clients’ interiors.

Accent chairs are invaluable in homes today giving flexibility with our new open plan living.  The Hopper chair with its neat dimensions can be moved into different areas adding extra seating when required.


No.2 The Accent Chair

If you have the extra space, I’d always recommend an accent chair or two! These are great for creating eye-catching pieces in a room, as well as allowing you to add a pop of colour to neutral interiors. With an accent chair, you want neat and simple arms, and most importantly, it needs to be comfortable. If a chair isn’t comfortable, you’re not going to use it and neither will your guests.  At Lavender Tree Interior Design our preference for living room seating is to have one large sofa and two chairs.  If you have the room you could add another sofa and the accent chairs added from another room when you have extra guests.


No.3 Winsor Abella Furniture

Abella bedroom collection is only available online.

The Abella collection from Winsor furniture inspired by French designs comes in a choice of three soft contemporary colours with a refined paint finish.  We love this beautiful practical furniture designed and constructed in the highest quality solid timbers.

Our favourite piece is this dressing chest of drawers with the simple lines and classic fittings, we feel it would compliment many of our clients’ bedrooms. If there is a space issue, by teaming the chest with key pieces from the Abella range such as the wardrobe and bedsides it gives a practical essential storage solution to your bedroom. This chest attractively captures French chic with a distressed finish for a vintage feel working well within many interiors. Bedroom furniture isn’t something you update often, so opting for a classic look allows you to create numerous styles with your soft furnishing.


No.4 Vispring Beds

ViSpring has been making bespoke beds since 1901.  This company stands by our values of excellence and craftsmanship. Their mantra is they provide “the ultimate recipe for a perfect night’s sleep” which sounds good to us!

We always advise clients to look at extra storage within a divan for bedding, towels etc

This is why we picked the Sublime bed which boasts optimum comfort and the softest covering. I’d team this with the Moncorvo Headboard to complete the look. This bed will add a luxurious feel to your bedroom and will complement the minimal furniture.


No.5 Paris Skeleton Wall Clock

We love how this stylish clock in with its subtle French-inspired design and antique white finish, creates a contemporary twist on a vintage design and would look great against a bold or neutral coloured wall for a stand-out piece.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to styling a large clock in your home as they can create a focal point. I’d recommend placing this clock on a feature wall in the hallway above a sideboard or adjacent to your kitchen dining area.

So, there you have it, expert advice from the experts themselves.
