6 statement furniture items guaranteed to turn heads

You know that feeling you get when you flick through an interiors magazine and your heart flips? Well, that’s the reaction we want guests to have when they enter your home. In fact, that’s the way we want you to feel about your home.

Forget pining over pictures on Pinterest and Instagram – wouldn’t it be great if your own home looked like it had been styled by an interiors expert? Well, we’re going to let you in on a little insider secret. The key to getting a great looking home is all in the furniture you choose.

Honestly, it doesn’t matter what size space you have to play with, or the age of your property – whether you’re 4 storeys up in a purpose built block, or surrounded by acres of land on all sides. Creating statement interiors boils down to one thing: getting your furniture right. And, everything else follows on from there.

So, if your home is currently lacking the wow factor then these 6 statement designs, from our range of handmade British furniture, will turn all that around.

The statement 2/3 seater sofa & sofa bed

Product featured: The Kingswood sofa/sofa bed shown in Broad Weave Linen Seashell from £1,290 and £1,359 

The appeal of The Kingswood lies in its shape. The slender sloping of its high arms and back make it perfect to seat 2-3 people comfortably. And, guaranteed to bring the wow factor – whether it’s used as your main living room sofa, or at the foot of a master bed.

 The statement 4/5 seater sofa & sofa bed 

Product featured: The Burderop chaise sofa/sofa bed shown in Viscose Linen Pumice from £1,760 and £1,910

The Burderop’s charm is all in the details. From its curved, cloud shaped seat back, to its neat slender shaped arms – this family sized sofa is the stuff interior dreams are made of. So, there’s so much more to this design than an extra space to extend your legs.

The statement bed

Product featured: The Winterslow bed shown in Matt Velvet Fossil from £775 

The Winterslow is one of those beds you just want to stand back and admire. And, this is exactly what your guests will do when they lay their eyes on this beauty for the first time. So, if you want a master bedroom that makes you feel like a rock star, this is the bed to buy.

The statement armchair

Product featured: The Wishford armchair shown in Matt Velvet Turmeric from £710 

The fact that we’ve photographed The Wishford in statement-making Matt Velvet Turmeric might make us somewhat biased. But, even in a lighter hue we can’t help but feel the wow factor won’t falter. We’ve taken design inspiration from the époque era with this one. So, if you’re a fan of spindle feet and button backing, consider The Wishford your armchair soul mate.

The statement day bed

Product featured: The Buttermere day bed shown in Country Linen Zinc from £885 

Not every home has a day bed but as statement furniture goes, The Buttermere is proof that statement furniture pieces can still look pretty and serve a practical purpose. So, if you only choose one furniture item to transform your home, make this it. There’ll be a fight to sit on it. But, the silver lining is whoever misses out gets to stare at it instead.

The statement accessory 

Product featured: The Winsley ottoman shown in Linen Cotton French Navy from £462

The Winsley Ottoman is a truly beautiful piece of British craftsmanship. Elegant and chic, it has a gorgeous diamond-buttoned lid with ample storage discretely hidden beneath. Cushions, blankets and even an extra duvet can all be stored in style in this little gem. So, it’s sure to make a real statement in any home.

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our statement furniture items. If you’d like more advice, or if you have any questions, contact our friendly customer service team on 020 8939 3800 or at
