Arlo & Design Fabric Edit: Rural Romance

Arlo & design is all about choice and the space to be creative with it. Though, if you’re searching for the perfect furniture for your home, it can be a bit bewildering to stare down hundreds of unique fabric options. To combat the deer in headlights effect, we warmly welcome you to test out our new design concept in any of our showrooms, where our team will gladly offer expert guidance. We can even help you narrow down to the best choice over a complimentary online style consultation.

To kick off Arlo & Design we’ve created five distinct furniture edits, which we find are useful for establishing a design direction in line with emerging trends. One of our favourites is curated around a trend we call Rural Romance. This story is all about warmth and comfort, with rich hues that envelop you. A nostalgic colour palette mixes Rooibos and Green Fig with desaturated Vintage Pinks and Jacaranda Flower to induce a familiar sense of calm. Speckled textures and twisted yarns add plenty of visual interest and reconnect with the comfort of home.

Our house Basket Weave fabric is a lovely expression of this developing trend. The Sandstone colourway is a creamy, warm off-white that’s neutral, yet characterful. The weave itself is rustic and textural, inviting you to settle in and get comfortable. Cotton and linen intertwine with viscose and polyester for a fabric that’s soft while also durable. It’s a fantastic all-round upholstery that you can dress up with cushions and throws through the seasons.

We’re also particularly loving the Natural Plain fabric that’s new to our house range. The Pistachio colourway is wonderfully rich, evoking pastoral scenes of the country. Picture rolling hills of sprouting rapeseed, with flecks of yellow punctuating a symphony of soft green tones. This is a primarily cotton upholstery with a lovely cross-hatched quality to it. If you’re looking to liven up your living space without overpowering the room, this is the one for you!

We couldn’t go without mentioning True Linen in this trend story. The Whisky colourway has become a fan favourite for its deep, warming colour. There’s a burnt umber quality to this hue that gives it real richness. It works well as a base in more darkly coloured interiors, or as a comforting anchor piece in lighter schemes. Plus, the 100% linen composition is a real treat to sink into.

We’re always happy to walk you through your options and weigh in on the best fabric to achieve your desired effect. Arlo & Design is geared towards supporting interior designers in bringing their ideas to life, as well as guiding our private clients towards schemes that work not just visually but functionally.
