The wedding list items fit for a princess
With the royal wedding still getting tongues wagging, and the season for nuptials now in full swing, we thought it was about time we made a wedding wish list. Think timeless classics for a home-obsessed couple – it’s time to help transform your pal’s humble abode into a matrimonial palace.
From a sumptuous seat in luxurious velvet, to beautiful accessories packed with personality – these pieces spark more than just a conversation. Opulent, yet contemporary, they’re fit for a modern royal – spoil your favourite newlyweds with decadent designs.
Vault-loads of velvets
Your home is your castle, so the saying goes, so why not choose furniture that reflects one’s more refined tastes. Draw attention with a statement seat like the Oslo armchair in a plush indigo velvet. Complete with a scatter cushion that’s plumped to the max with over 20,000 individual duck feathers – fit for a future ruler indeed.
Space saving solutions are essential for couples who’ve already accrued a lifetime’s worth of furniture between them. Far from being hidden away in unloved corners of the room, storage units are now a singing centrepiece. Give the gift of beauty and practicality combined, with a guaranteed crowd-pleaser like the Aero brass shelving unit. Timeless Art Deco style makes for the ideal location to show off best reads and trinkets alike.
The finishing flourish to a palatial pad – a luxurious yet contemporary rug will keep tired toes happy. The hand-tufted Mika rug is the ideal piece to bring a touch of bohemian chic to a living room. Carefully crafted by generations of Jaipuri rug-makers, the Mika rug evokes connotations of India’s most opulent palaces with a contemporary colour palette to wow.
Kitchen basics like crockery and cutlery are always worthwhile investments for a couple who enjoy the fine pleasures of in-home dining. Bringing earthy, organic tones to any dinner party – the Ines Burnt Cream cereal bowls are expertly designed with a special matte reactive glaze that compliments high-quality tableware with a rustic edge.
What self-respecting bedside table is complete without a table lamp. Transport your favourite couple back to their honeymoon destination in an instant with the Aura tropical palm shade – it’ll brighten up even the darkest of winter nights. For something more understated, this lamp also comes in a translucent marble-effect – either way it’s essential for a relaxing boudoir.
Know a couple who are complete TV addicts? A beautifully crafted media unit it is then. The Florence light mango wood media unit is a sure-fire way to coax eyes away from the box. Its white-washed finish makes it a modern masterpiece, while origami style carving gives it a touch of opulence.
