Sofa Inspiration – The Great British Countryside

Sofa Inspiration – The Great British Countryside

The Great British countryside is home to picturesque landscapes and vast colour palettes that mature gracefully as the nights draw in. The Autumn season offers a charming mood board that can be applied when choosing the ideal Sofa or Chair for your home.

The heather fields of The North York Moors

Drawing inspiration from The North York Moors, these purple hues work well in creating an understated sophistication. Opt for our Amelie Large 2 Seater in Carrera Heather to retain a subtle scheme paired with Giselle Aubergine and Graphite Aubergine scatters. Or for a more dramatic effect, choose a fabric such as our Francesca Stripe Heather which works well with neutral earthy tones.

The falling leaves of Westonbirt, Gloucestershire

Introducing earthy shades of brown and green give will give your home a rustic look that creates a traditional country feel. These tones are perfect for creating a practical space that can be used by the whole family. Our Henley 2 Seater in London Saddle sits elegantly within this natural scheme – why not choose a fabric option of Baslow Stripe Mulberry, reminiscent of the falling Autumn leaves.

The foggy landscape of the Great Ridge, Derbyshire

The timeless, moody hues of the Derbyshire countryside bring with them a breath of fresh air. Achieving this look is about striking a balance between saturated hues to create depth. Try a Montana 2 Seater in Como Slate paired with a Pampas Duck Egg to balance it out. Use atmospheric lighting to add interest, and sleek finishes to keep your spaces from feeling too dark as the nights draw in.
