Summer is on its way and we’re looking forward to embracing a sense of tranquillity as we transition to longer days, warmer weather and al fresco entertaining.
The core colour palette and materials take inspiration from nature, with a move away from bright whites and cool greys to natural, softer tones of nude, sand, sage and off-white. These are complemented by natural woods, rusted metals, and interesting textures such as peeling paint finishes and embroidered textiles.
This is ‘the season of green’, with many of nature’s green hues featuring across our range.
Summer textiles are ‘natural with a twist’. Always unique, this season’s cushions are a little bit special; textured cottons and linens with embroidery, frills, ruffles, tassels and frayed edges. Our muted stone-washed cushions will be on everyone’s wanted list this summer.
Furniture is white-washed or natural woods and rattan, as well as relaxed sofas with slip-covers in cobalt, fog and sand colours. A must-have for summer lounging is our gorgeous French-style rattan day bed.
