Now more than ever you want to create a sumptuous home to relax and feel totally comfortable in. If, like us, you love to make your home so beautiful you’ll never want to leave it; then our product guide is one to stick on your favourite Pinterest board.


A Walk in the Clouds


Walking barefoot on your area rug in your living space, bedroom or study should feel like a walk in the clouds. We’ve got the incomparable Nani Marquina, established in 1987, a family-owned company that takes pride in their constant innovation, handcrafted techniques and use of new and exciting materials. They work with local and international designers to ensure diversity of themes in their products, creating one-of-a-kind rugs for each customer! Check out our favourite 3 starting from £192.


  1. A curious stepping stonelayout of hand tufted New Zeland wool
  2. Tres Colours, hand loomed rug with strong geometric patterns (available in more colours).
  3. The Rabarihandmade collection created with Sumak techniques.



With Sherry’s close ties to the Italian design industry, we must include some firm favourites like Illulian, headed by charismatic brothers Davis and Bendis Illulian, they create contemporary rugs made with silk and wool.



Plus, we cannot forget, the powerhouses that are Morosoand Capellini– synonyms of ‘Made in Italy’ – creating rugs with stunning designs and quality materials for the most discerning clientele.



Take a Seat


At the heart of creating a relaxing space is the seating area, whether this is in your living space, lounge area or garden, comfy seating is a must. However, there is no need to compromise in style when thinking about ease and cosiness. Opt for The Bebop two-seater sofaby Cini Boeri for Poltrona Frau that features soft lines and a deep enveloping seat, or the The Redondo sofa by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso, which sees the designer literally cutting corners. This modern piece of designer furniture flaunts a curvy silhouette and an almost helical design erupting from the quilting of the plush fabric. Once you’re on it, you’ll never want to get up!


If you’re looking for a smaller and more classic shape we suggest the Munna Be Mine Love seat, hand-tailored, button tufted spacious seat with a stunning chesterfield button back. For the epitome of contemporary style choose the inimitable Le Corbusier sofa and chair by Cassina, styled with loose cushions and leather upholstery.

Last but not least, for an added touch of sensual relaxation a chaise lounge is a must! Our entire collection will have you dreaming for more, but we love Koket’s Envy chaise lounge laden with soft button tufting and a tailored fixed cushion for added comfort.
