‘Un­der­stated lux­ury’ is a de­sign mantra widely as­pired to but rarely mas­tered. Collins & Hayes looks set to change that. The Not­ting­hamshire-based brand takes an old-school ap­proach that puts the em­pha­sis firmly on craft (so­fas, chairs and foot­stools are all hand­made in its ru­ral work­shops) and ma­te­ri­als (ex­pect goose feather back cush­ions and strictly nat­u­ral fi­bre fab­rics). The ‘un­der­stated’ part is de­liv­ered by clas­sic shapes and a sub­tle chalky pal­ette, while hand-stitched de­tail­ing and the op­tion to up­hol­ster in 360 shades from Romo’s Li­nara linen range adds luxe appeal.
