Cosmopolitan Club - Create your own private one

Make your home feel like a private club with a high dose of 1970s glamour. The club trend is driven by our need to connect and socialise in the real world, not just the digital. It draws on the era of 1970s private clubs with its patterns, hues and textures as inspiration. Further, life looks sweet with a colour palette of coco, honey, tobacco, whisky and cognac. These golden tones are contrasted with subtle greens and olives. Introduce soft mohair, matt velvet, corduroy and geometric stripes to truly create the right club atmosphere.

Channel the club house vibe with fabrics such as Clever Velvet Quince, Cotton Velvet Burnt Umber and Cotton Velvet Olive. Look to the sleek Clara sofa in Cotton Velvet Hazel as a perfect example of how the 1970s club trend can work.

Ultra Glamorous - Refresh the Classics

The ultra-glamorous trend brings a creative jolt to classic furniture and homes. For those who love heritage design and craftsmanship but want a refresh this is the perfect trend. Consider how playful opulence and patterns lift the mood. A major trend in 2020, it was first ignited when Pantone declared Classic Blue the Colour of the Year. Since then a new slew of jewel box colours have arrived. Explore how Easy Velvet Honey, Cotton Velvet Damson and Corduroy Sky capture its spirit.
The characterful Marple sofa styled in the Corduroy Sky, demonstrates how successfully a traditional fabric can work with a ultra-glam approach.
