As colder autumn days start to draw in and many of us continue to spend more time at home thanks to flexible working, there will be a renewed focus on creating spaces that offer both comfort and style this season. Whether it’s investing in sculptural pieces of furniture that are as sumptuous as they are supportive, or introducing luxurious textures, the new season trends reflect a shift to more considered, indulgent interiors.

Here’s how to tap into some of the biggest AW21 design trends with the help of the new collection from sofa.com.

Love your curves

Ginger accent chairs in champagne luxe boucle, £950 each

With a nod to the retro designs of the 70s and 80s, voluptuous and sculptural furniture is bringing a sensual touch to our spaces this year. Pleasing on the eye and perfect for when those cold nights start to draw in, these modern designs will wrap you in a comforting cocoon. The Ginger accent chair from the new sofa.com collection is a simple way to introduce organic shapes and texture into your room thanks to its curves and a choice of over 100 fabric finishes, including a luxuriously soft champagne boucle.

Invest in pieces made to last

Cohen modular sofa set in royal fern brushed linen cotton, £2,340

The rise in conscious consumerism isn't just limited to our wardrobes; it extends to our interiors as well, and is reflected in the popularity of sustainable materials like reclaimed wood, concrete and wool. When we furnish our homes, we want pieces that will last.

Whether you're looking for a sofa with timeless appeal or an expertly crafted new desk for your home office, all of sofa.com's products are handmade to order by skilled craftsmen. Every detail of its Cohen sofa, for example, has been carefully designed by the in-house team to introduce a touch of indulgence into your room, from the ergonomic lumbar support of the curved back to the FSC-certified beechwood frame.

Add unexpected texture

Florence double bed in grey marl highland tweed, £1,160; Cagney side table, £180

Forget flat surfaces and smooth panels; we’re switching them up for something a lot more decorative, from slat-fronted sideboards to cupboards wrapped in ribbed fabrics. Textured furniture is an easy way to create a scheme that feels rich and luxurious. If you want to bring the trend into the bedroom, the Florence bed from sofa.com features a wooden headboard with asymmetric panel detailing, providing a stylish boutique-hotel-inspired finish.

Choose warm, earthy neutrals

Larsen 2 seat sofa in stone brushed linen cotton, £1,490; Ginger accent chairs in champagne luxe boucle, £950 each; Astaire coffee table set in spiced honey soft leather, £1,325

Rich, earthy colours that ground us in nature continue to trend into the autumn months. Think warm coffee and clay-coloured walls, terracotta tiles and dark woods, paired with soft furnishings in spiced ochre and rich creams for a warmer take on minimalism. Introduce some of these natural tones with sofa.com's new Astaire coffee table set, which can be personalised with your favourite wood, leather and fabric options. Pair it with the Larsen sofa, finished in a soft stone grey, to add extra warmth to the heart of your living space.

Make your furniture work harder

Luna large round pouffe, from £320; and Luna half moon pouffe in pine soft sustainable wool, £260

After a year when our living rooms have turned into offices and our kitchens into classrooms, autumn sees a move to more considered double-duty spaces, with multitasking furniture doing a lot of the heavy lifting. We want desks that double as sideboards, dining chairs that are ergonomic enough to stand in as desk chairs, and bookcases that work as room dividers. If you’re looking for a multipurpose addition to your home, try sofa.com's Luna pouffe. A dual-purpose piece designed for flexible living, this coffee table-cum-footstool has curves in all the right places.
