Festive Fabrics: Coordinating your Christmas decor

The most wonderful time of the year is fast approaching, so let’s warm up the mulled wine, pop open the tin of Quality Street, and let the magic of Christmas descend on our homes.

The colour of your sofa often dictates other colour choices in the room. Whether you prefer to keep it matching, or add a pop of vibrant colour into the mix, let our customers inspire you with their festive sofa selfies.

Keeping it neutral

Choosing a neutral linen sofa can give you the freedom to experiment with colour this festive season. Opting for winter greens, or traditional deep reds can give your room that timeless feel. Or, if a more limited colour palette appeals to you, you might want to explore using gold, silver or rose gold to give your living room that subtle, magical touch.

Opulent velvets

Deep jewel tone velvets are complemented by rich colours, such as reds, greens and golds. These bright, joyful hues add a traditional feel and a sense of warmth to the room. We love this customer image, showing how our elegant Abbotsbury in Portland Teal Velvet encompasses true Christmas cheer, complemented by classic yuletide colours.

Going for bold

Whether it’s a vibrant colour or unique print, embrace your bold fabric choices with an array of contrasting, eye-catching hues. The brighter the better! For example, if you have chosen a showstopping orange velvet, complement this with quirky decorations and amazing pops of purple, green, blue and yellow. However, just because you have opted for a colourful fabric, it doesn’t mean you can’t be more understated with your Christmas decor.
