Soft Vintage Blue Tones to Brighten Your Interiors

Cumulo 2 Seater Sofa

To combat the blues in these turbulent times, lift your spirits with soft blue-toned interiors. A top colour trend for 2022, introduce furniture in vintage blue shades to create a calming space to relax and unwind in.

The Cumulo 2 Seater Sofa can be upholstered in a selection of gorgeous fabrics, but if you’re trying to recreate the look, we’d recommend picking out the Mineral Velvet or Aqua Marine Linen. Named after a cloud for a reason – settle into the fibre-filled seat cushions, arrange the feather scatter cushions just so, and feel your troubles just float away.

Deep Greens and Browns Inspired by Mother Nature

When styling, we’d recommend selecting furniture and accessories that follow the natural theme but are as equally striking as the Stratus Sofa range.

The deep acacia wood Class collection from Dutchbone would do the trick! The rich-toned wood finish, herringbone design and antique brass details would bring drama to your living room and perfectly pair contemporary and retro designs.
