There are few bigger decisions to be made than the choice of key items of furniture for your home. Whether it’s a comfy corner sofa for the sitting room or a statement console table for the hallway, your choice can make or break your interior scheme. Large pieces of furniture also often represent some of the biggest investments you will make in your home so it’s vital to get it right.
This month we run through some fresh furniture ideas to inspire you as we head into autumn, as well as bringing you a not-to-be-missed deal from one of our favourite furniture designers…

Your sofa, your way
As well as working with established furniture brands, we also love to take on completely bespoke commissions from our clients. Maybe you need an unusual size or shape of sofa to fit a tricky space or you want to create a real showstopper of a piece with dramatic fabric and unique embellishments? We can advise on colour, style and fabric choice, as we did with this vibrant Osborne & Little fabric called Cosimo Raspberry/Blush/Silver which costs £165 per metre. The reupholstered sofa worked brilliantly at one end of the client’s kitchen diner, picking up colours featured in the paintings around the room.
For another client we created a luxurious look with a pair of ‘Wolsey Grand Sofas’ by John Sankey (from £3,036 each). The customer wanted quality, statement pieces for their formal sitting room which would stand the test of time as well as tying in with the colours in their existing curtains. J Brown’s Modena velvet fabric in ‘Slate’, a lovely light teal, provided the perfect solution. We styled the sofas with both bolsters and cushions. The bolsters featured Zoffany’s gorgeous Ocelot Velvet fabric with a contrasting piping in Warwick’s Macrosuede in Ash. The leaf motif cushions were made up in Jane Churchill’s Atmosphere Caruf fabric in Aqua/Charcoal.
Transform your hallway
Another area in which furniture choices can make a big impact is in the hallway. If the décor is fairly neutral, the right choice of console table or sideboard can really transform the space and provide a vital focal point. At the moment, we love Bronte’s new ‘Storm’ sideboard (£865) which features oak and brass details with an on-trend, deep blue painted finish. The accompanying console table has similar styling and offers great value at just £285.
