A beautifully proportioned drawing room, with lots of light.  The soft green on the walls bringing the outside in, and eclectic selection of furniture and fabrics make this room very welcoming and relaxing.

Armchairs and Cushions

A pair of these comfy armchairs would make a perfect sitting arrangement.  Covered in the moire stripe for a classic look.

The lovely Nikita fabric is perfect for cushions on the armchairs.

Wing Chair and Settee

The wing chair in the corner is a great spot for reading the papers. Covered in a cotton velvet with a lovely Palmer Print cushion.

We love the antique settee, upholstered in a stripe like the Aldeburgh fabric woul look very smart.


A bespoke footstool, button or not, sits perfectly infront of the sofa and armchairs.  Covered in a muted gold velvet.

This room has some lovely antique tables, here we have an antique of the future, the Nutley side table would sit perfectly along side the sofa.
