Clever Velvets

The Essential collection offers three types of clever velvets. As this fabric is hugely on trend and has been for several seasons, we are offering a varied mix so there’s something for everyone. Without further ado allow us to present to you our Clever Glossy velvets, Clever Matt Velvet, Textured Velvet and House Velvet. We have curated a mixed colour palette of neutrals, smoky tones and rich jewel tones to boot. The Clever Matt Velvet is a marvellous option for those of us with little ones with grubby mitts, if there’s a spillage it’s not a problem as this velvet is stain resistant so it’s perfect for a family home, Hallelujah now everyone can have a velvet sofa without the worry of it being ruined.

House Velvets


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 neutral’s ranges from greys, to creamy whites, cool blues and subtle pinks …. There’s just so much to choose from.

Essential Collection Neutrals

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.

The House Plains are a gentle palette of icy blues tones and soft greys that would suit any home and will most definitely stand the test of time.
