This month, we’ve got the hots for sofa.com’s plush new seating, Marcel wanders’s fairy tale-esque Lollipop mirror and Cattelan Italia’s super-fancy Royalton sideboard
Rarely do pieces of furniture really feel as good as they look, but we’re making an exception for sofa.com’s collection of sit-on-and-sink-away velvet pieces. Sure to bat away any seasonal blues, the look this autumn is all about punchy, vibrant shades. ‘Whether you choose a sofa in a striking statement colour or opt for opulent jewel accent tones, rich fabrics in bold colours are the most reliable go-to for instant glamour,’ says Vanessa Hurley-perera, chief product officer at sofa.com. And while we thought the combination of seriously squishy shapes and luxuriously soft fabrics was already quite clever, the sofa giant has just rolled out a line of new Smart Velvets, which promise to be more durable and longer-lasting than ever before. So no matter how many box sets you hunker down to watch this winter, your sofa won’t show any sign of it. Clever, huh?
