Whether it brings you excitement, nostalgia, or an ever growing sense of aging, mid century modern design just keeps coming back, baby. It’s undeniable that a textural, and sun-filled 70s home has etched itself into our design books and pinterests boards for good.
This autumn, we’re dreaming of sunken lounges, vintage florals, textural piles of cushions, huge ceramic lamps and the sounds of our most treasured records. Our AW23 collection, Living, has shimmied its way in amongst our favourites for its late 60s jewel tones, nostalgic florals, and brand new range of colourful boucle.
Get a little bit of flower powered love into your home with our three favourite trends for the season.
Don’t worry, it’s not your grandma’s boucle. You’d be hard pressed to find an Architectural Digest featured home without a hint of boucle. The trend traces back to Eero Saarinen’s 1946 ‘Womb chair’, becoming an instant classic for its curly fabric that makes you want to do just that - curl up! It soon solidified itself as the fabric of choice for mid century modern furniture.
Whilst this beloved textile once laid dormant on the design landscape, interior designers are now scrambling to find perfectly intact vintage boucle cloud couches. We’re skipping the hunt and adding our new favourite texture with our Boucle Cushions. We’ve reimagined the standard white boucle, opting for rich purples and deep yellows. You’ll even have your options doubled - these babies are reversible and have perfectly contrasting colours on each side.
Trust us, shuffle some boucle amongst your current cushion lineup - it’s irresistible snuggly.
2. Retro velvet
Ever wondered why our styled up beds seem to pack that extra punch? Texture, texture, and more texture. The last 20 years of styling advice have told us to keep it simple, banned us from pattern clashing and forbid combining fabrics - it’s time to unlearn those instincts and pick up some tips from those oh-so-inviting 70s homes. Our favourite retro stylists play with height, size, and textile to create multi-dimensional spaces that invite you to explore.
3. Vintage florals
It’s hard to believe that we once painted over timeless floral wallpapered walls in favour of beiges and whites. If you’re not quite yet brave enough to strip back that paint, bring that dreamy garden back inside with some vintage inspired floral bedding. Don’t be shy to introduce it slowly with some feature pillowcases, euros, or keep it just for yourself with a statement fitted sheet. We’ve refreshed the old school florals with a bright modern palette for Autumn, on smooth organic cotton and french flax linen. Unlike a real bouquet, your floral bedding will stay fresh all year round.
