New Romance

Our history dates back to 1898 when Ebenezer Gomme established his first furniture factory. An era that embraced the battle between Gothic and Classical architecture, when Victoria was queen and when design was king. Victorian décor was so ornate and decadent, that we’ve been inspired to take a leaf out of a Dickens novel and add some gothic drama to our homes.

To achieve the romantic look, use neutral blushes and dusky lilacs, with decorative darker toned touches. Dressing a light coloured sofa with aubergine or chocolate brown cushions is an ideal way to add accent colours. If you’re feeling bold, try statement cushions with embroidered or beaded detail, this will add glamour to your living space without going overboard.

The Victorians liked to surround themselves with different textures, such as polished wood and sumptuous velvets, which is easily achievable in your own home. A side table is a practical place to house a detailed lamp, or a wooden bowl filled with scented dried rose petals to fill your room with an alluring aroma.

If you want to make a statement, an armchair such as Chloe in a dark toned upholstery fabric like Victoria Mulberry will do the trick. Create your own cosy reading nook with a small bookcase filled with literary classics, not forgetting a snug blanket to keep away those chills.
