Neutrals, no collection would be complete without them! Have you ever painted a wall a bright bold colour? How long did the wall stay that colour before you became tired of it and painted it back to a more neutral colour? Neutrals are a classic and work with any style interior. A sofa is an investment and you will have your dream sofa for a long time, so by opting for a neutral tone the likelihood of you falling out of love with it is nigh on impossible! Our Essential Collection has so much choice in the way of fabrics. Depending on what your preferences are you can choose from soft wools, brushed cottons, linens and some beautiful linen-cottons. The spectrum of our neutrals range from greys, to creamy whites, cool blues and subtle pinks …. There’s just so much to choose from!

Patterned Fabrics

The Essential Collection includes some delicately patterned fabrics. The Basket Weave is an ingenious mix of two shades intertwining through one another creating a subtle weave effect. The Cotton Stripe is a jolly option, reminiscent of summer days this classic stripe is 100% cotton, presented in soft pastels, blues, a red and neutrals. The Herringbone Weave Fabric is noted as a plain fabric, however the weave adds interest to what is otherwise a plain fabric, making it tactile and fabulous to sit on.
