SofaSofa Summer Trends – What’s Hot in Interior Design This Summer


We don’t know if you’ve noticed but summer is definitely on its way!
Warm weather, longer nights and weekends socialising with family and friends are all on your list this summer, and you want to make sure that your home is looking fabulous.  After all, how many times have we planned a BBQ only for it to be rained off? That's why we put together some amazing interior design trends for this summer, so you can enjoy this wonderful season even at home.

Tropical Prints

When we think of tropical destinations our mind is whisked away to warmer climates, and exotic places filled with lush greenery. An ever more popular trend is tropical prints, with ferns, jungle patterns and all kinds of tropical birds, on wallpaper, decorative accessories or furniture.
If the thought of a busy patterned sofa is too much for you, don’t worry as it’s easy for us to re-create this in our home (well, maybe not the warmer climate) with the use of bold patterns, leafy prints and lots of house plants dotted about.

The first step to recreating this style is to choose your sofa. Simply choose a colour that works well with the theme and that will make a statement without being over fussy.  We love the Mia sofa in Emerald Green. It’s a modern twist on the classic Chesterfield design and comes with a sprung back for support, hand upholstered buttons and a choice of seat cushions and legs so you can tailor it to suit your individual needs.

To accessorise the look choose leaf print wallpaper, bold scatters or pictures with a tropical theme.

Another amazing look with us for quite a few seasons now is the coastal look. This may be a little easier style to work with. All you need is a stripe sofa and a few beach themed accessories.

Our super popular Newport range comes in a choice of plain polycotton fabric or a stripe fabric, perfect for this style.  The covers are fully removable and machine washable at 30° degrees meaning you can swap and change colour and style and the fashion changes. There are 11 plain colours and 4 stripe colours to choose from as well as a choice of soft or firm seat cushions.

Floral Fantastic

Floral patterns are always in and out of fashion so you can’t go far wrong with this print.  If you’re a fan of floral then our Blenheim range is a must have for you. It’s available in 3 sofa sizes, 2 chair designs and 2 footstools and in a choice of floral, stripe or plain fabric. In addition, you have the choice of seat cushion filling and 3 leg finishes! We particularly love the Usk Grey – not only is the grey colour very much en-vogue but it’s easy on the eye too and will be the envy of all your friends.

You probably want to let the floral design of this fabric be the centre of attention so it’s best to choose simple, plain accessories.
