2015 Trends – What did we see on our recent buying trip?

28 January 2015

January is our buying season, we visit the large furniture shows and our manufacturer’s factories to decide what we will stock in the showroom this year.  We always enjoy these trips and return rejuvenated and full of fresh ideas we can incorporate into our interior designs.

The most recent trip was a great insight into the latest trends in furniture, and a lot has changed since last year.

The ‘Shabby Chic’ look was also evident, we saw ‘battered’ leather sofas with loose throws on more than one of the manufacturer’s displays.  In fact, like the fashion industry, faux fur seems to feature lots this year.  We saw many examples, particularly on throws and cushion covers where it was often used along with leather.  “Hair on Hide” was a phrase we heard on a few occasions!

Cabinet furniture featured lots of reclaimed timber, a look we particularly liked.  We also ordered some beautifully made cabinet pieces in bleached walnut, you’ll be able to experience their quality when they arrive in the showroom in the Spring.

We’ve posted below all of the pictures we took on our trip, these will give you a good idea what we saw, and what you can expect to see soon in our Glasgow showroom.

All in all, we are excited about the year ahead.  We have some beautiful pieces arriving, and some great ideas to share.  Please keep reading the blog, or subscribe to our mailing list to be kept informed about all the new arrivals in the showroom.

Finally, don’t forget our annual sale is running until Monday 9th February.  We really do need to make lots of space for the new stock, so we’ve reduced the prices even further, it certainly is worth dropping in for a look.  You can see some of the clearance stock here.
