The Chesterfield sofa has been one of the most popular designs, without fail, for the last century. Although technically a ‘vintage’ style, the timeless style can be combined with virtually any other designs or colours effortlessly.

4 Living’s ‘contemporary oriental’ range is perfectly represented by th ball leg coffee table. The clean lines and luxurious black lacquer are typical of modern furniture styles, where as the turned legs and distressed edging add a distinct oriental flavour.

Autumn is a season with a great connection with nature, making the ‘colour in motion’ rug an idea seasonal addition. The rings of fabric on the rug are just like those you see in the core of a tree. They actually rather remind me of crop circles which, forgetting all of teh mumbo jumbo, are very beautiful!

5. Ethnicraft Teak ‘Lodge’ Sideboard

Teak is such a great wood with which to make furniture. Ethnicraft’s cutting edge contemporary European designs combine perfectly in the lodge sideboard to combine something which is both modern and inherently natural.

6. Newgate Retro Wall Clock – Pluto

When compiling this list, the ‘Pluto’ clock just jumped off the page. The rich rusty tones are perfect for autumn. Whether you liken them to autumn leaves, or the bicycles you forgot to cover up, these warm tones will be a great addition to your wall.

7. ‘Butterflies’ Cushion from Clementine & Bloom

Orange was a big colour trend during spring/summer, so I quite like the idea of this ‘burnt orange’ sticking around during teh winter months. The expertly embroidered teal butterflies provide the perfect ‘pop’ of contrast.

8. Modern Bird Song Wall Clock- Coloured

Although it is indeed pleasing on the eye, this clock from German brand, KooKoo, is an addition aimed at the ears. The chime of each hour is performed by a high quality recording of the song of an indigenous European bird. The gentle tones are perfect for the autumn and winter months, especially once half of the real birds are on their winter vacation!

9. Skovby 32 Walnut Extending Table

A little more pricey than the other bits and bobs on the list, yes, but the Skovby 32 table is pretty much as cool as it gets. The beautiful veneered walnut finish on this table is enough to justify the purchase alone. The trick to this table, however, is the super-clever rotating extension mechanism. The table can go from a 4 to a 9 seater in only seconds, making it ideal for dinner party season.
