  1. Furniture Fusion

    Furniture Fusion

    This season furniture design has evolved from the retro styling of last year into a contemporary hybrid fusing elements of both old fashioned comfort and modern sleek lines.

    Additions to the Rossiters range for SS19 include the gorgeous new Loretta sofa and the super stylish Monaco sofa with its matching oval chair and footstool. Look out for the all new Quattro range - now with a cutting edge corduroy option - and the cosmopolitan Madrid in a range of bold velvets. Sofas in bright tones contrast with the trend toward simplicity when it comes to dining furniture. Natural is the byword with more designers opting to incorporate the natural curve of the wood as well as the colour in table designs.

  2. Bursting With Colour

    Bursting With Colour

    Rossiters' creative director Ann-Marie James looks forward to a flamboyant Spring, with tropical colour influencing everything from wallpaper to rugs.

    This year’s Spring interiors collections are bursting with colour, with the Anna range by Manuel Canovas leading the charge. From the rich embroidered herringbones to the multi-coloured velvets, design doesn’t get much bolder. Our design team love them and starting from £98 per metre they won’t break the bank. Designers Guild are also leading the way with delightful printed velvets adding colour and richness. Matthew Williamson’s new wallpaper range from Osborne & Little offers a riot of tropical splendour after the long cold winter. 

    The emergence of big bold - occasionally clashing colours – is also reflected in this season’s must have accessories. Stylised images of the iconic characters are still featuring heavily on home accessories. Rossiters’ choice of cushions featuring Mexican artist Frida Kahlo ha

  3. Go With The Throw

    Go With The Throw

    The weather outside is frightful and with the winter chill looking set to remain for some time, a wonderful woollen throw is just what you need to keep toasty in style. Here's our selection of some of our favourites. A lovely addition to our shelves this season is the National Trust collection from Bronte. This range features throws and cushions in traditionally woven plaid. Throws from £79. Cushions from £47. For a slightly more contemporary look we love the latest range from Tweedmill. Throws from £56.

  4. Going For Bold

    Going For Bold


    Soft furnishings are a vitally important part of any room scheme and updating them is arguably the best way of getting the new look you want without out the price tag of a full makeover. Here's some advice from our in-house experts on what to look out for if you feel like a change.

    Looks like early 2019 is going to be dominated by big deep colour and bold designs. Gone are the muted tones of early 2018 and even traditional ethnic-inspired patterns are on the wane in favour of botanical themes - at least as far as the top interior design houses are concerned. At Rossiters the furniture salesfloor is already starting to reflects this with even traditionally upholstered sofas being given a contemporary twist with the addition of cushions upholstered in fabulous Rio Velvets by GP & J Baker. These are printed velvets with a colourful dash of Latin spirit. If these bold botanicals make your heart sing but you're not quite ready for a bespoke

  5. The Easy Guide to Updating A Room

    The Easy Guide to Updating A Room

    Tight on budget but desperate for a room refresh? Here's some small changes that can give maximum impact.

    Step 1. If you need a change but don’t fancy the upheaval or expense of restyling your whole room just choose a bold wallpaper to cover the one wall that will have the most impact.  

    Step 2. Use window treatments to create light and space. Full-height curtains to treat a small window will create the illusion of a larger window. 

    Step 3. If you can’t choose between fabric & wallpaper patterns consider using the same for both.

  6. Time For A Detox

    Time For A Detox

    New year is the time for a detoxing declutter- plus a Christmas full of friends and family can take its toll on your home.

    Interior trends for 2018 are moving away from last year’s tropical tones. Deep blues, particularly indigo are back, often mixed with metallic tones to lift them and give them warmth. A great example is the lovely signature fabric of our classical Ferdinand chair, which mixes blue tones and silver. Warm copper mixes beautifully with deep blues and wallpaper ranges such Casamance’ Palace Vendrome are a good place to look for gleam with a hint of glisten and textured shine. Elaborate custom-made scatter cushions will change the feel of a room, adding welcoming props of colour and fun. Jane Churchill’s embroidered fabrics make eye-catching accessories and feature many of the warm metallic tones I favour. 

    I’d also recommend careful placing of warm metallic accessories. Don’t go too far with any makeover and don’t
