The Grey Sofa

Opting for grey is the perfect way to achieve a stylish yet sophisticated living room environment. This trend is simple yet chic and often fits well with an assortment of different colour schemes. You can jazz up a grey sofa with some brightly coloured throws, quirky cushions or funky footstalls. For a truly timeless look, try our Pembroke sofa in Dumble Marmotte.


The metallic trend is a timeless look that shows absolutely no sign of taking a back seat. Incorporate this style in your furniture, lighting, wallpaper and paint choices to add a modern and chic appeal. Cool metallic tones such as silver and steel bring a slick, smooth and glossy effect, whilst warmer tones like gold, brass and bronze are alluring and subtly opulent. Add soft metallic touches to your sofa with our Geometric Cushions in Moorland, Steel and Pearl.

Neutral Palettes

Neutral tones will always be on trend. Go for natural, lighter shades to create a bright and spacious environment, or opt for wooden floors to evoke a warm country feel. Neutral hues pair beautifully with stronger colours, prints and textures, creating the perfect base for a unique living room style.

Statement Lighting

Good lighting is essential in the living room and a statement fixture can create an impactful space. Make a statement with a stunning chandelier, or use a table lamp to create a cosy reading space with a warm glow. Introduce extra light and create a welcoming tone with a floor lamp, or use a wall light to force light up and down walls for something more atmospheric.

The Feature Wall

All it takes is one fabulous feature wall to really make a room stand out. An exciting wallpaper print is an ideal way to grab attention, funky geometric prints or floral designs look striking against neutral backdrops. Experiment with different coloured paints that contrast with your overall scheme. Whatever your style, impressive statement walls are the perfect way to give your living room the wow factor.
