Textures and patterns


Cushions by Janie Knitted Textiles

It is no news that patterns and textures are in, but as we move from spring into summer we can already see the sun-inspired floral and bold patterns that are surfacing.

Textures have become increasingly popular since Hygge hit the UK. Hygge is a scandinavian word that translates roughly as ‘cosiness’ and has become a latest trend which encourages the homeowner to incorporate textures and comfort into their home design.

Janie Knitted Textiles are a home/furniture company in the Nottingham/Derby area and have a range of textured, knitted cushions which would be a great way of giving a living room, bedroom or conservatory a ‘hygge’ feel in your home.

“Customers are creating extensions of their living spaces by investing in quality dining sets and gourmet BBQs for their gardens, as a way to merge their indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces.” Vicky also encourages that the consumer should be bold this season and “embrace bold clashing colours, and accessorising your garden with textiles.”


Statement and comfort

One of Richdale’s Bespoke Sofas

There is arguably no better way to make your conservatory the ideal space to relax in if you do not have the perfect sofa to stretch out on. To find the perfect sofa in Nottingham we would recommend having a look at the following two local furniture companies for some stunning sofas ideal for your living room or conservatory this summer.

Alexander and James Sofas have stunning sofas in rich colours and beautiful textures. If you are looking for some new additions to a living space, their range of foot stools, including stylish leather and velvet materials.

Richdale Sofas are slightly different to most retailers and it is strongly advised that you go to their showroom in Sandiacre on the Derby/Nottingham border. They are also experts in upholstery so if you’re planning on renovating your living room or the old chair you threw into the conservatory a few years ago, Richdale Sofas are a great choice.

Furniture Choice predicted at the start of 2017 that Scandinavian living will be popular and claims that “hazelnut and other natural wooden furniture adds accents of colour to this light and airy design and concept”.
