Sofa Moments: How to Hygge


Hygge seems to the word of the moment, and we couldn’t be happier. As a term that describes our current state of mind about January, staying in and feeling cosy with candles aplenty, cushions and blankets piled high and a sofa to sink into at the end of a long day, Hygge is most welcome in our day-to-day lives.

To recreate this cosy look at home, we’ve put together a list of products designed to winter-proof your home and make staying in with a hot chocolate or glass of red wine the new going out.

Orlando Sofa, Italian Velvet – Emerald, Arlo & Jacob
Shop here

Our Orlando sofa in emerald velvet is perfect for adding texture and warmth to a room. With style and comfort in abundance, the Orlando sofa creates a statement with its combination of contemporary design and Art Deco influence. Described as the "perfect lounge around lounge” piece, Hygge is pretty much made for the Orlando sofa.

Heather Mohair Throw, Arlo & Jacob
Coming soon

No evening is complete without a throw wrapped around you while watching your favourite shows on Netflix. This brand new mohair blanket is super soft, super warming and super colourful. We love the combination of green and pink and with this throw and the emerald Orlando sofa above, you’re onto a winning winter, hygge look.

Oakhurst Hot Water Bottle – Sienna, Amara
Shop here

Chilly evenings in January call for extra heat and this vintage fair-isle hot water bottle provides just that! Hand-knitted in Scotland and in retro orange and yellow shades, there is a definite nod to the 70’s with this product. In 100% cashmere, this hot water bottle is not one to banish to the back of cupboard – lounging at home never look so good!

Luxury Hot Chocolate, Whittard
Shop here

Is a cosy night in even a cosy night in without hot chocolate? Not until you’ve tried the hot chocolate from Whittard anyway. Smooth like cashmere and rich in flavour, this hot choc is treat that shouldn’t be denied. Add a swirl of cream and some marshmallows for something a little more decadent. Go on; it’s January, we all deserve a treat for getting through this month!

Hand Poured Botanical Candle – Hibernate, The Future Kept
Shop here

at last, we know what hibernation smells like, and we like it, we like it a lot. Hand poured into a hand-blown glass; the candle is a combination of soothing lavender and chamomile with a dash of lemongrass and a hint of Rosewood to help the stresses and strains of the day float away. It is hibernation summed up in a glass!
