Sofa.com announce the launch of their AW19 collection, which includes an exciting array of new shapes, from sofas and armchairs to beds and stylish accessories, perfect for your autumn updates.
Talking trends with sofa.com’s Chief Product Officer, Vanessa Hurley-Perera, it’s obvious that AW19 is all about the details.
“One of the biggest trends at the moment is fluting, which has been reimagined for 2019. It lends itself to elegant pieces such as our new Albie sofa, with wide flutes for a modern, yet slightly Deco aesthetic. Fluted designs look especially spectacular in velvets, allowing the curves of the flutes to really catch the light.”
Saturated, vibrant colours are an ideal way to create a dramatic focal point in your favourite rooms for AW19. “Reds and pinks such as our rosy red Claret and fuchsia pink Peony cotton matt velvets are a go-to option for brighter contrasts, whereas our Butterscotch yellow and Olive green cotton matt velvets have also seen quite a surge in popularity – and work well with the blue/grey neutral palette we’re seeing so much at the moment.”
On maximalism, Vanessa agrees the tide is turning. “While we are confidently experimenting with colour this season, we’re not being complete maximalists. Look at your room, factoring in its key features, and let the colour and shape of your furniture take centre stage. Our new Juliet bed, for example, with its subtle yet romantic cupid’s bow headboard makes its own statement, especially in Peony cotton matt velvet. Forgo fussy accessories and clashing wallpapers in favour of a more considered, chic palette.”
