There is a new wave of upholstery hitting the design world. It sits comfortably with me and is something I’ve been adopting for many years. When I started styling in the States I was introduced to the unmade bed – we shot this ‘look’ for many a catalogue and magazine and I have always loved it. It is kind of the opposite of Martha Stewart & hospital corners. If this does not come naturally to you, you can now buy a lounge with layers, lots of sink-yourself-into cushions and linen sewn on the selvedge. If you want to extend this to the bedroom, get the pre-washed linen no-nonsense sheets, oversized bolsters & other luxuries from sheet companies Matteo, Society (available here) and Bedouin Societe. For me this is all about back-to-basics, fuss free comfort that looks fab crushed, soft & unmade. Look to: Clarke & Reilly, Linteloo, Caravane and others.
