Light the fire, dim the lights, and snuggle up on a cosy sofa, cocooned in plump cushions, and soft throws. If this kind of winter evening fills you with bliss you are channelling hygge.
Pronounced ‘hoo-ga, hygge is a Danish concept of comfort and happiness through the simple things in life. Hygge can be found reading a gripping book in your favourite armchair; watching Netflix in oversized jumpers and chenille socks, it’s in scented candles, fluffy throws and tactile textures. Hygge has no hard edges; it’s soft, comforting and simply stylish.
To help fuel your obsession with all things cosy this winter, we’ve put together a list of our favourite soft furnishings to help bring a little warmth into your home.

This gorgeous sheepskin-effect rug brings sumptuous texture into your home. Its geometric shape gives this traditional rug a modern edge.
Lorena Canals Grey Star Cushion
This cute and quirky cushion from Rose & Grey nods to the recent trend for all things star-shaped. It will look amazing on your sofa, armchair or bed! Stack it with mustard-coloured and grey cushions to give your space a contemporary feel.

Let jewel tones and opulent texture transform your living space with this vibrant green cushion. Fronted in luxuriously soft velvet with a natural colour linen reverse, it’s perfect for layering with other shapes and prints.

Blended with alpaca wool, this luxurious fringed throw adds a soft, light layer to a bed or can be used outside on chilly summer evenings.
The Eleanor Pritchard Signal Blanket
We love a weighted blanket and this beautiful Signal blanket ticks a lot of our hygge boxes. It’s contemporary in style while drawing inspiration from traditional British textile crafts with its bold geometric shapes and graphic reversible patterns.
Trending Colours for 2019
Over the coming seasons, we’ll be getting braver with colour. We’re seeing exotic pastel shades such as coral contrasted with black or warm neutrals. Sky blue, vibrant orange and all shades of pink are making an appearance as is colour blocking. You can introduce these trends in soft furnishings so choose the shade that excites you and have fun.
