  • Sofas: Inspired by Jamie Hayon’s designs for Fritz Hansen, angular sofas with feminine curves in delicate hues are making a steady return. On the flipside, Danish-inspired sofas are still big news. “Quilting and two-tone or two-colour fabrics add a fresh look”, says Nicole Sherwin of sofacompany.com. Leg details include 1950s-style oak or on-trend metals such as copper and bronze. “Sleek lines, simplicity and minimalism are the main focus in sofa trends”, says Nicole. Anchor your space with the Vamp Sofa or Murphy two-seater in Dina Rosa.

    Velvet: Opulent velvet has always been revered for its style pedigree. More recently, it’s been the go-to fabric for Mid-Century Modern-Inspired furniture. This season’s velvet-covered furniture has a more laid-back look that’s ideal for anchoring an edgy living area. For a more subtle look, add an armchair, such as this Chignon Chair, covered in plush velvet as a tactile counterpoint to a super-modern space. Colourwise, you can’t go wrong with lilac, rich berry, greens and midnight-blues.
