After scanning through dozens of furniture magazines and visiting countless furniture stores, don't you wish you had access to a list of guiding principles to help sift through the mountain of choices in front of you?

Well, now there is.

We’ve rounded up a list of impactful style tips to take your space to the next level! Remember to bring these along the next time you find yourself having trouble shopping for home furniture!

Go Modular

Welcome to a new era of home styling – where versatility not only meets your changing needs but also enables you to switch up the look and feel of your space!

Here’s where our modular sofas do their magic. An example is the Todd Collection – the ultimate sofa essential for any interior or layout. Packing plenty of style within its modern design lines, each one features modules that allow you to add, rearrange or remove – anytime you like!

We can’t forget comfort – the padded arm and backrests offer the right amount of support any couch potato needs.

Create a bespoke look by picking out specific modules to adapt to the size of your space and personal preferences, all the way down to the selection of custom fabric or velvet colours.

Balance Bold & Basic

Part of creating your dream home is using the best parts of your imagination. This means moving away from flat, one-dimensional styling, and letting your personality shine.

While basic neutrals are a necessity, too much of it lacks character and visual interest. Add a splash of colour or texture with an accent piece such as an armchair, ottoman or even a side table.

The Gable High Armchair combines sensible design with bold, modern elements in the form of its unique curved silhouette to add artistic flair to your reading corner.

Still unsure? It is all about balance. Even choosing an unconventional velvet look for your sofa can be toned down.

The Alfie Chaise Sectional Sofa in Deep Teal Velvet is a great example of being subtle yet unique. The velvet fabric makes a style statement while the elegant teal shade tones down on the drama.

Whatever you settle on, look for custom fabric options to add your signature to your sofa.

Play with Geometry

Geometric patterns and shapes are a striking way to add visual appeal to any home.

A more playful manifestation of minimalism, geometric coffee tables such as the Cupid Coffee Table show just how puzzles can be a magical wonder – its cubic base utilizes inverted pyramids that double up as additional storage or display space.

The Mico Coffee Table will have you at hello - it’s all-natural, resort look will evoke a refreshing coastal style to your interior with its rounded form and airy woven details.

Made of a hardwearing combination of rattan and teak sustainably sourced, it features a removable table-top and generous storage compartment that can store away magazines, throws and even cushions.

Seemingly “unimportant” pieces need not take a backseat in the home – a stylish sideboard or other storage compartments in our Alexander Collection are vital in completing your home aesthetic for a cohesive, put-together look.

Even the Aziza Rug with its tribal patterns can be a surprising addition to a Scandinavian home, scoring high marks as a statement piece in itself.

Flaunt those Curves

Curvy furniture is set to make a shoo-in when it comes to beautiful, timeless furniture – its undeniably inviting form is great for breaking up the harsh lines of conventional, structured pieces to bring a sense of fluidity and flow into the home.

Designed in collaboration with Krystian Kowalski, the Luna collection hits the sweet spot with its flowing lines and opulent details. We can only envisage being enveloped by its curves with a relaxing drink after a long day at work.

Another favourite is the Bickerton Sofa; designed by Marcel Sigel, this beauty is no doubt ahead of the curve! Its plush curvilinear arms and polished trimmings add an elegant and comforting presence to any interior, and balances out other angular furniture pieces.

Add some Luxe

You don’t have to spend a fortune to make your home look expensive. Simply look out for luxe textures or details such as leather, brass, marble or velvet!

Leather sofas are fast making a trendy comeback as they help to bounce light around a room and exude a instant sophistication. Our popular designs now comes in high-quality, top-grain leather, and are available in a range of classy hues such as saddle tan, mocha, vintage latte and more.

Brass, marble or metals can be easily incorporated through lighting fixtures or with furniture essentials that feature these elements. Some designs like the Ines or Adams allow you to pick between silver, brass or black coated legs.

Last but not least, throw in a bunch of lush velvet cushions for a buttery-smooth cuddle experience.
