decorating trend: the simple life

Wood stools in a stripped-back style take their cue from the salvaged look.

Great from any angle, this coffee table’s raw finish lets the wood’s natural character shine through.

Simple, stylish, seductive... a streamlined day bed ticks all our boxes.

With its low back and slim proportions, this elegant chair is a mid-century classic.

Cool collectables (or burnt offerings) will find a new home in a neatly sealed jar.

Who could imagine a garden vase would have such poise? Much too chic to be left outside...

Sleek yet sturdy, this handsome model will add a refined edge to any occasion.

This cosy chair wraps you up in style.

Tactile upholstery hits the spot – here’s one bed you’ll never want to leave.
