Spring 18: The top furniture picks for a spring home refresh


Did you know that annual cleaning and the associated overhaul of our living spaces is a world-wide practice and has deep roots in many different cultures and countries?

In some countries, such as China and Thailand, giving the home a deep clean – sweeping every floor, scrubbing walls, dusting furniture and polishing ornaments – is believed to bring luck and good fortune for the coming year. For many, spring cleaning also means replacing old or worn objects with new.
It’s sensible to have a good clean down after the cold and wet of a British winter, but perhaps it’s nature’s renewal every spring that makes us look at our own environments and want to make changes and improvements at this time of year. And as trees begin to blossom and grass starts to grow, we’re naturally drawn to fresh-looking furniture, with clean lines and soft colours. Furniture that not only looks good but provides great storage, is functional and brings a bit of spring sparkle to our homes. 

The Scandi Furniture Collection

Oslo Furniture Collection

Take a look at our Scandi-inspired Stockholm, Oslo, Bergen and Copenhagen collections for example. If you’re seeking something modern and elegant for the bedroom or living room, the Copenhagen sideboards and cabinets, built on clean contemporary lines, will bring a fresh, clean look. And to continue the cool and fresh theme, why not add a Bergen coffee or side table? The circular tray sits on top of white painted iron legs, which can be folded away and stored when not in use.

The Bergen Furniture Collection
Could your home office do with a spring make-over? What better to revive your working environment than the Stockholm desk and complementary two-drawer filing cabinet?
Both are made of sturdy MDF with clean and natural looks and the desk has three handy drawers for storing stationery. Also in the Scandi range are our Oslo hexagonal storage boxes, with lids that double as display trays. Ideal for storing those bits and bobs that can make a home look untidy. 

The Sapporo Furniture Collection

The Sapporo Collection

Sticking with contemporary lines, but with warmer tones and metallic glints, our Sapporo collection has distinct geometric designs made from beautiful recycled elm wood on gold metallic iron frames. Perfect as a group or as stand-alone statement pieces, the range includes book and display shelves, cabinets and a nest of tables. 

The Westchester Furniture Collection

The Westchester Collection

If you favour the loft-style industrial look for your home, but want the warmth of natural wood, the Westchester collection, made from acacia wood and cool grey metal, has a strong lines. The range includes a fabulously functional shelf-ladder display unit – complete with utensil hooks and open-drawer style shelves – a dresser, a wine cabinet and a tall storage unit.  Best of all is the dining table, which will comfortably seat six guests – perfect for a spring dinner party. 

The Halston Furniture Collection

The Halston Collection

Want to add a splash of colour? Why not consider one of our best-selling Halston tables? Made of pine with painted MDF tops, they’re compact, practical, attractive and so popular we’ve just extended the range to include two new tables with deep hexagonal tops. Brilliant!
