Taking inspiration from history’s greatest styles

The right exciting pattern can ignite the energy of any interior design project. The possibilities of what is achievable seem to be endless and, from the Greeks to O’Keefe, there is a wealth of inspiration to be found in iconic art. Consider the bold colour choices in this fantastic Parker Knoll wingback. The dynamic colour range in our Extravaganza fabric is perfectly framed by the Fauvist green and red combination, making this statement piece such a memorable one.

Murano plain shattered chenille

Some fabrics mix the style charms of the past with elements of modernity. This chic ottoman incorporates the classic geometric shapes featured in Art Deco's interior design. The plain shattered chenille is enhanced with a 3D effect and a metallic-look yarn for an eye-catching edge. This particular piece brilliantly demonstrates the Murano range’s ability to lift the elegance of a room, regardless of furniture size. The range features a number of different fabrics each designed to inject the same artistic dynamism into any interior design project

Sometimes less is more. Selecting a bold fabric as a statement feature, rather than the entire piece, can have a dazzling impact. This effect is perfectly illustrated on this gorgeous wingback chair. Pairing the plain cerulean front with one of our 11 Maestro jacquard designs elevates both fabrics and delivers a magnificent chair.

One of a pair of swivel chairs, this item showcases some of the more contemporary designs we have available. This particular meander pattern takes inspiration from classical Greek border decorations but, with the aid of a spectacular teal velvet, is given an updated and funky aesthetic.

Much like its sister piece above, this chair takes inspiration from the past and is revitalised by bold colour choices. Reminiscent of the Art Deco movement and the iconic use of geometric shapes, this chair has plenty of character and completes a fantastic pair of comfy swivel chairs.
