Feature: Laura Ashley – Home Collection

CITY DWELLING
Cool and contemporary, our City Dwelling collection takes inspiration from all things industrial to create an easy and relaxed interior look. Contemporary, simple and with an urban edge, this collection uses a sophisticated palette of steel, charcoal, dove grey and natural hues. Texture and handle bring softness to the collection with linen and cotton blends, stripes, checks and geometric prints. Our new Greenwich Steel and popular Pussy Willow designs provide the backdrop to upholstery ranges appearing on cushions, wallpapers and bedlinen. Our new Wroughton and Flinton furniture ranges perfectly compliment this collection with their sleek matt black finish and polished concrete-style tops. Lighting focuses around large, oversized pieces in matt galvanized finishes and polished nickle. Our Kinver table lamp with its concrete base is ideal for adding texture to a room while our Alfred floor studio light provides a striking centrepiece.

HARBOUR
A fresh, nautical-inspired story, our Harbour collection uses a palette of seaspray blue and camomile alongside natural tones and cream hues to create a clean coastal feel. Perfect for relaxed living, accessories boast soft weathered finishes while pretty florals like our new Runswick and Sandford designs have been applied to cushions and bedding to suit upstairs and down. Our conversational Ahoy boat print features throughout the collection and is perfect for adding a playful touch to interiors. Sophisticated and classic stripes feature on upholstery like our new Newbury chair, which sits beautifully within the collection, as do our Milton and Dorset furniture ranges. Lighting features salt-blasted glass bases, storm lanterns, exposed filament bulbs and our Hascombe, Chiddingfold and Ockley ranges. Kitchenwear also features across a range of fun and charming accessories like our Lobster bowl and platter.

TIMELESS COUNTRY
Taken from our archive, Timeless Country focuses around our classic Willow print, recoloured in hedgerow green to create a relaxed and country look with a slight Scandinavian influence. The simple Willow print is combined with our sophisticated Awning Stripe featuring on wallpaper, curtains, blinds and upholstery, while our Garden Birds design adds a conversational element to lamp shades, cushions and accessories. Our Elgin, Dorset and new Lyneham furniture ranges sit beautifully within this collection, as does our Whitworth sofa and chair, crafted from naturally curved oak with distressed leather upholstery, adding a modern feel to Timeless Country. Lighting is simple and timeless with our Corbridge, Whitley and Abinger ranges complementing the collection and adding a cool and sophisticated finish.

ARTS & CRAFTS
Inspired by the iconic designs of William Morris, our Arts & Crafts collection creates a classic, elegant interior without being overly formal. Rich velvet upholstery adds comfort and luxury to the look, while the familiar palette of grape, marine and hedgerow allows Arts & Crafts to work with many of our existing pieces. Mixing and matching prints of different scales is the signature of this collection with our Peacock Feather print being combined with our Annecy and Milford designs. Lighting boasts painted ceramic and antique brass finishes while our new Blenheim coffee table with its beautiful cherry wood inlay and Drake side table with printed glass antique world map design are sophisticated and handsome furniture additions. Accessories are inspired by nature and animals with our embroidered Peacock Feather and hare cushions, leaping rabbit ornament and Jude photo frame providing the perfect finishing touches.

AMBLESIDE
Classic and welcoming, Ambleside takes the signature Laura Ashley style and gives it a fresh, seasonal update. Our popular Honeysuckle and Wisteria motifs as well as traditional checks have been recoloured in palette of cranberry, hedgerow and grape, complementing many of our previous ranges and making it easy for customers to add to their current Laura Ashley products. The relaxed, country cottage feel of Ambleside works perfectly with our Dorset furniture range, particularly our new cranberry and hedgerow colourways. Key pieces for the season include our stunning Dorset Pantry, a fantastic new style featuring generous, adjustable storage, as well as the matching Butcher’s trolley, both available in seven colourways. Decorative accessories continue this wholesome country feel with beautiful china and cookware emblazoned in our new Vegetable and Fruit prints.

SILVER SERENITY
Updating our archive florals, Silver Serenity centres on our Beatrice and Honeysuckle motifs, recoloured in a sleek and romantic palette of warm greys, blush pink, cyclamen and silver. Our new Swans print adds a sophisticated, yet conversational touch with gift items and lighting coordinating with the print. Grey furniture ranges like Clifton and Provencal work beautifully within this story, as do our mirrored Arielle, Charleston and Capri for added glamour. Lighting features chrome and glass finishes with chandeliers building on the opulent theme. New embroidery techniques, ribbon work and piping provide extra richness and texture for living and bedrooms in the form of cosy throws and cushions. Accessories centre on bedroom luxuries like quilted hangers, jewellery rolls, scented hearts and laundry bags, bringing an added element of indulgence to the range.

CHINA BLUE
Taking inspiration from the traditional blue and white china patterns of Wedgwood and Burleigh, our China Blue collection is perfect for creating a confident and bold interior. We’ve recoloured our iconic Summer Palace and Eaton Stripe motifs and applied them to wallpaper, upholstery fabrics and decorative accessories. Designed to sit alongside our existing Garrat and Henshaw furniture collections, China Blue will add drama to any room, as will our new grande sofa size. Chrome, silver and glass finishes feature in lighting and mirrors while textures are plush and opulent, with intricate embroideries and velvets applied to cushions. As this collection draws so heavily from ceramics this has been reflected in our decorative accessories offering with beautiful porcelain bowls, stools and ornaments included to complement the collection.

BRONZE LUXE
Flamboyant and opulent, our Bronze Glamour collection is an indulgent and sophisticated interior range. The palette features sable and truffle hues alongside rich coppers, gold and bronze, with accents of cinnamon and honey. Fabrics are extravagant and luxurious like faux fur, velvet, metallic prints and jacquards appearing on bedlinen, cushions, throws and curtains. Lighting focuses on hammered metal finishes with our popular Ockley pendant updated in stunning amber glass, as well as our quirky pineapple light, now available in a larger size with matching candlestick. Decorative accessories feature leather and metal details in perforated, laser cut and embossed finishes. Add hurricane lamps, wall clocks and mirrors to complete the look.
