Get the Look: Chic loft-style décor with our Johnston high-back sofa
Paired back scandi-style loft-living is still having a design moment. Exposed brick is a revival trend that went from drab seventies to modern-day industrial chic. Taking your interiors back to the bare brick really lets your furniture and ornamental pieces shine. Keep the look clean and simple, but with plenty of texture; add plants and different surface materials for depth and interest. Focus on strong structural elements; geometric slim black frames allow plenty of light to pass through, keeping the room uncluttered and letting the space breathe.
We’ve offset this new traditional-inspired sofa design with a highly modern interior look. Upholstered in textured Herringbone fabric in a neutral, cool Harbour Grey, our Johnston takes on a sleek, contemporary look. We’ve paired Johnston with Edmund; a classic armchair shape covered in a smooth, elegant dark brown leather. Leather and herringbone fabrics work exceptionally well together. More textural fabric elements are provided by the dark grey wool scatter cushion. Sticking to a neutral colour palette, amber tinted glass vases and candle holders provide a chic pop of colour, and the iconic smoked glass lamp is a central focus point for the space that draws the eye in. Green succulent plants give the scheme a lift, preventing the look from being too industrial and dowdy.
