Pattern and Print

The idea of prints and patterns can sometimes be a bit daunting, but fear not - The Lounge Co. are here to help. Pattern instantly adds interest and creates a focal point for your lounge. If you’re a fan of the more subtle approach, traditional stripes and checks are probably the ones to go for. Not afraid of colour and shape? Modern florals and abstract patterns are a stylish and on-trend option.


Stripes are an elegant choice of pattern for your lounge furniture. Slim pinstripes provide a subtle and sophisticated look. Bolder stripes will make more of a statement; to keep a sofa with wide stripes looking refined, we recommend choosing a fabric that is designed using similar tones or shades of the same colour, like our gorgeous Spring Stripe shown below.

Choose a sofa upholstered in checks and you’ve got instant traditional style. We offer two checks; Frazer Check and Forbes Check - both are neutral and understated, but are the perfect solution if your interior is classically inspired and you want to add interest with pattern.

Bold florals are a blooming trend (excuse the pun) for Spring/Summer ‘17. They’re a great way to bring colour and pattern into your lounge whilst still keeping a natural feel to your decor. If a sofa clad in floral fabric sounds a bit scary - start small! Our range of Botanical Cushions, created for us by textile designer Gillian Arnold, will add vibrancy to a plain sofa or chair.

If florals just aren’t your thing, but your interior tastes are bold and modern, then geometric patterns could be the way to go. Geometrics look great in monochrome, bright colours or even metallics. At The Lounge Co. we’ve got a range of contemporary accent fabrics, including Dandelion Wish - shown below. Choose one for a chair, footstool or cushion and make a stylish statement in your lounge.
