I’ve long been a fan of British homeware brand Loaf, whose laid-back designs blend timeless elegance with up-to-the-minute rustic and industrial touches, so I was excited to see some lovely new products land on its website this week.
The just-launched items include five sofas and the intriguingly named ‘Shortbread’ bed, plus more than 20 additional fabric choices in soft, powdery pastels – ideal for introducing a dash of summer into the home (even if the weather has yet to catch up).
My favourite is the ‘Atticus’ sofa, which nails that tricky-to-achieve balance of contemporary lines and sink-into squishiness. Best of all, it’s handmade in Derbyshire, where I grew up!
There are also a couple of stylish new footstools (one called the ‘Doughball’, which says all you need to know about its level of comfort), as well as scatter cushions in breezy cottons and linens that have shot straight to the top of my wishlist. Perfect for lazy lounging with a good book and a glass or two of something chilled!
