Decorating Trend: Pure Style

This retro, love seat-style sofa steals the show thanks to its elegant simplicity.

Bring depth to a minimalist entrance with a sculptural coat stand in a natural wood.

With its deep seat, chunky arms and low back, this sofa nails the relaxed contemporary look.

Sage green with bleached wood epitomises the Scandi scheme.

Simple, functional items grouped on a sideboard offer a laid-back approach to display.

The artistry in this oak table’s tapered legs and contrasting dowels shows both form and function.

Work the ‘less is more’ aesthetic to perfection with subtle textures and hints of fresh green.

Shades of cream, walnut and sage combine, scoring serious style points.
