As interior design has evolved and more and more discerning homeowners (and renters) explore new trends and become more daring in preference, the colour grey has emerged stronger than ever. A great colour for layering with bolder hues to increase their vibrancy, it is often used as a neutral base for other colours and materials. Grey is incredibly versatile, and works particularly well when paired with accent cushions and throws.

Made up of a wide spectrum of hues, grey can provide you with a variety of shades from calming to rich, suitable for lighter and darker schemes. Due to its adaptability, it is considered as the easiest shades to work with in the home.

While the maximalism trend is now being embraced more than ever in interior schemes, grey – alongside beige - remains a strong contender when it comes to sofas. Tried-and-tested criteria when looking to invest in a new sofa: practicality, durability and quality. You’ll not only want something that suits your space but that will retain its style and condition for years to come, and this is why grey continues to be a common choice. It is one of few colours that doesn’t tire or age quickly and it can be seamlessly complemented with other shades and materials, whether you do this through furniture or accessories.

Known for their clean lines and emphasis on quality craftsmanship and design, Scandinavian interiors are proof that personality can still be injected even when using the simplest palette and a minimal amount of products. Our Lennox sofa in Riva Charcoal is a nod to retro design whilst still harnessing contemporary curves and an ultra-cosy back. Paired with contrasting accessories like cushions or a footstool creates a playful yet stylish aesthetic.

Dillon corner sofa in Casual Graphite

When incorporated in a rich, dark hue, grey can take centre stage instead of just providing a base for other colours. Our Dillon corner sofa in Duffield Charcoal makes for a bold focal point – one that can be easily achieved. Against a classic white wall, this look is subtle yet makes an impact. Layered with matching cushions and minimal accessories, the Dillon really anchors the space and paired with a large jute rug completes this contemporary look. Charcoal not only injects sophistication but also warmth and cosiness.

So, if you’re looking for something timeless and easy to work with for your home, grey is a good place to start for a versatile room that can carry many looks over time. Grey is an investment in your current and future tastes as it can support any number of prints, colours, styles and textures.
