Spring Into Action

From botanical bliss to grand geometrics, Spring/Summer 2019 offers a host of décor delights for anyone planning an interiors makeover or pick-me-up.

According to Plumbs, the UK’s number one name in furniture recovering and reupholstery, richer colour palettes and switch-back 70s styles bring an on trend feel to home furnishings, with fresh new fabrics key to the overall look.

Replacing curtains and simply recovering sofas and chairs can instantly update a room and give tired but trusty seating a whole new lease of life. Not only is it more environmentally friendly than swapping old for new, it’s cheaper and easier too.

So, for anyone looking to luxe up their lounge, put a sparkle in their sitting room or pizazz in the parlour, here’s the Plumbs guide to the season’s hottest looks for homes:

Retro Reminder

Seventies style is back! With statement shaping and a classic colour palette it’s all about nostalgia for mid-century interiors: 70’s chic is all warm hues, funky textures, and abstract silhouettes.

If bright colours are your style, try adding some mustard or burnt yellow to your home. This chair reupholstered in Amalfi, for example, is great as a contrast piece or combined with other jewel tones.


Geometrics bring a dramatic presence to the home this year with bold colours and oversized patterns offering a statement look in any room.

Clean lines help to create a busy, yet modern look that works perfectly with Scandi simplicity. Astral (as seen on the chair) and Calypso (footstool) capture this creative new trend, effortlessly styled with a plain sofa.


Once regarded as old fashioned and stuffy, velvet is now viewed as luxurious yet funky. This multi-dimensional fabric brings glorious texture and vibrant colour to sofas, chairs and curtains and after a popular run in recent years is expected to remain one of 2019’s most sought-after trends. The Amalfi collection from Plumbs is just one of the on-trend ranges available offering a wide and contemporary palette of plains.

Hazy Blues

After years of ruling the roost, could grey have had its day? So what to do with lovingly crafted, neutral homes? If you don’t think a statement piece is for you, why not opt for a touch of misty blue.

Shades of moody blue bring a calming grey undertone that promotes a serene energy in the home, making it feel both inviting and relaxed.

Royal Stripe is part of Plumbs’ Easifit range of fitted covers, offering a hassle-free way to wash and redress sofas and chairs. The nautical stripe adds an of-the-moment touch to existing home décor, providing a fresh new feel to the room.

Warm Hues

Richer hues bring more muted furnishings to life! Look out for dramatic reds, statement pinks, bold yellows and organic greens at the forefront of latest décor collections where rich, saturated colours rule.

For those who love rich reds and golds, this vibrant Amberley fabric combines warmth with a nod to the current floral trend while stopping short of full-on chintz. Bold and inviting, this is a look that takes centre stage -– and is also part of Plumbs’ Easifit range of fitted covers.

Tropical Tones

This year it’s all about bringing the outside in, with a focus on natural, organic materials and a palette of warm, earthy brown tones and deep forest greens.

Combined with our love of open plan design and light airy spaces it’s about bringing a touch of nature into the home in a healing and energising way.

Bromley is a soft, palm leaf design that explores botanical patterns and offers an elegant taste of the tropics. A versatile design, it is available for curtains, blinds, reupholstery or replacement sofa covers – an oasis of calm wherever it is used in the home.
