British weather can be unpredictable at the best of times, so why not introduce a permanent splash of sunshine into your lounge with vibrant, citrus tones.
Shades of lemon, orange and grapefruit might seem like a daring choice for a sofa, but sometimes you need to ditch the neutrals and embrace the bold. Overwhelmingly joyous and optimistic, these fruity hues are the perfect antidote to grey days.
