Have you heard of ‘cottagecore’? It’s THE spring trend that’s taking the world of fashion and interiors by storm.
During lockdown, did you find yourself yearning for simpler times? Wanting to escape to the countryside, immerse yourself in nature and find joy in the little things?
That’s what cottagecore is all about. It’s an aesthetic that celebrates rural life and brings it into full bloom with a palette of neutrals paired with chalky pastels, floral accents and vintage inspired accessories.
What does cottagecore look like?
Think shabby chic but less shabby and more vintage elegance. Pair classic neutrals with chalky pastels and floral prints for a palette that is reminiscent of the English countryside.
It’s a carefree, eclectic mix of old and new. It’s comfortable, relaxing, natural and pretty.
What makes a cottagecore sofa?
To get that cottagecore look, choose shapes that are classically elegant and fabrics that are soft and muted. It makes sense to opt for a neutral sofa and accessorise with an accent chair, cushions or a throw in a more colourful shade. Take a look at our gorgeous selection of fabrics; you can choose up to 6 and get samples delivered free.
