Two Nottingham homeware brands team up for new furniture catalogue
As design lovers, we should all know that if you’re after a neutral but luxuriously comfy sofa, you shouldn’t have to compromise on a room’s colour. We know this and Duresta certainly know this, which is they asked us to help them out with the new catalogue for their ‘Domus’ sofa collection.
Domus is a contemporary collection of sofas, chairs and coffee stools that boasts simple lines, timeless shapes and luxurious fabrics. The catalogue is the perfect example of how you can use wall art to brighten up living rooms that are often dominated by neutral furniture.
"Minimal, clean, and modern— these are the elements we’ve built into Duresta’s contemporary collection Domus, and are also the essence of Lane’s hand pulled screen prints. We’re proud to be associated with a fellow Nottingham based company, who share in our ideals of handcrafted British design."
Duresta are a widely established authority on interior design. They’ve been hand making furniture and luxurious upholstery in Nottinghamshire since 1938. Each of their pieces have a frame that’s been hand made by a really skilled craftsperson, something that’s important to our own ethos of making and designing. With a design studio and workshop just up the road from us in Long Eaton, it’s great to be establishing a professional design community in Nottingham and we love being able to add another company to the Lane Family.
We also love the fact that they work closely with the National Trust, who let Duresta’s designers study historic pieces of furniture that belong to their collections.
Duresta's catalogue show us that there are a few ways to introduce a bold, sophisticated and on-trend colour. It’s really important to consider artwork when decorating a room, as it can really bring it all together. The plus with wall art is that no decorating is actually required - add a splash of colour without picking up a paintbrush or opening a tin of paint!
1. Go the whole hog with the ‘Metropolitan Compact Reading Chair’ in yellow and match your accessories accordingly.
2. But if you want a subtler look, try the grey version and allow the ‘Yuzu Yellow & Drift Blue’ screen print to define the rest of the finishing touches. It’s an updated on-trend rework of the classic grey and yellow colour trend (always the most popular of our colour combinations).
3. If you’re opting for a family-friendly blue scheme, you can use a range of different shades of the same colour. Duresta’s stylist picked out our ‘From Land and Sea’ print (our bestseller) to prop above the ‘Brooklyn Compact Sofa’, drawing out the bright blue in the print, the sofa fabric, cushions and rug. The copper lamp and candle holders draw out the orange in the print too and this one’s particularly Instagram-worthy, too!
Our screen prints fit with both contemporary furniture and traditional fabrics as there’s 20 geometric prints to choose from and 8 different colourways in the ‘Twin Tone Play’ series. There’s a design and pattern to suit all colour schemes and styles.
We offer 10% off when you order a set of the ‘Twin Tone Play’ Screen Prints, which is just two or more of any of the colourways. If you want to see the screen prints in real life, you can visit our studio at Primary or you can request a set of postcards so that you can play around with the colour and see if they work in your room.
Discover all of the different colour combinations and designs in our wall art shop.
