Velvet is THE fabric of choice for 2018, carrying through to 2019 for sure! The trend for bold, rich coloured velvet furniture pieces is strong but so often we get scared to invest in big furniture pieces in daring colours! Why not meet the trend half way, choose velvet but in a timeless grey.

Still desire more colour? Pair this timeless sofa with a co-coordinating coloured velvet armchair – to make a real style statement.

All it takes is a rug to totally transform the feel of a room. Inject a global vibe into your home with either of these statement Aztec-inspired designs. The black background gives the designs a different identity to the more traditional Berber rugs. On our Calandre design the fringed edge adds further texture to compliment the shaggy pile.
