How to embrace the Danish concept of hygge with our top textile picks


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.

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.

“I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone”

A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.
