Get the luxury homeware look
16 January 2019
Winter can be a bit gloomy come the new year, but you can combat the January blues with a dash of luxury homeware, that won’t break the budget.
Opt for sumptuous textile finishes, like velvet and leather-look, and add glamorous-looking metallic accessories to achieve something special for your home.
Maximum comfort comes from shapely sofas finished in deep pile velvet material. A standout sofa is the key to achieving the look of luxury.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourites in this feature, but for those that are working on a tighter post-Christmas budget there are also a few handy tips for giving your old furniture a purse-friendly and easy update.
Velvet or faux leather transform a sofa
Once you have chosen the shape of your sofa, how do you turn it into something extraordinary? Well, the answer is you upholster it in a fabulous fabric. Choose from a selection of curvy, deep-seated sofas such as our traditional Gosford or contemporary Madison designs and specify a velvet or faux leather fabric for the upholstery. Voila, an instantly glamorous item for your living room.
While darker, jewel-like tones are very much in vogue this season, there are also a range of lighter shades to choose from, too.
Click into our fabric swatch options to explore colours ranging from Dark Teal and Plum, to the lighter-looking Blush and Mauve, to name a few.

Zola dining chairs
Christmas and New Year can raise awareness of the dining area, especially if you’re not inclined to use it that often other than on special occasions such as the festive season. Did you notice that yours is looking slightly tired? Use the new year as a great excuse to ditch the old decor and update with new.
Our Zola dining chairs look every bit the designer seating, but with a price tag of just £180 for two, shown here in the Opulent Velvet Ochre colourway.
Choose from Bottle Green, Blush and Terracotta, too.

Seasonal steal – the Elinor stool
Every season there are homeware items that scream ‘buy me’. This is one of them. The Elinor stool is neat, practical and lovely to look at. On first glance it looks luxurious and therefore expensive, right? But, with a price of just £60 it’s got to be a steal. So if you’re choosing to limit yourself to just one luxury-looking item for your home, then make sure you consider this one.
