The trendsetters have spoken and we’re giving them the thumbs up. No time to waste, start decorating…
Get out of the way, Ultra Violet! We’ve got a new colour to obsess over. The experts at Pantone have had their say – the colour of the year for 2019 is Living Coral – a peachy orange that’s pretty and playful. Simply need to bring this hue and its shades/tints home? We went shopping to save you to the trouble. Cheggit…
Kravet, a popular soft furnishings label from New York, has officially partnered with Pantone to supply us with Living Coral hued fabrics. Take your pick – bright solid or delightfully patterned – there’s no going wrong with this one. Our picks? We’re crushing hard on polka dots and another one that looks like a contemporary take on tribal stripes.

Table runner from Journey East
Pappelina has taken quality plastic and woven it into a vibrant reddish coral table runner and we think might be a nice touch for Chinese New Year. And who needs a centrepiece when you’ve got this bright spark staring at you.

Ceramic mug and tea infuser from Scene Shang
Bring coral to your tea time ritual with these sweet things from homegrown label Scene Shang. The May mug takes after the shape of a typical Asian flask with a pattern in coral, pastel green and grey. And the Torus tea infuser (that comes with a stand) is shaped like a little donut. Designed by Andrea Ponti for Ommo, you can clip this coral infuser to any cup.

Tea towels from Naiise
Granted this shade is not as vibrant as a pure Living Coral and we’re majorly digging these subtly hued linen tea towels. Sustainably sourced, this Kamilinen can be used to try the dishes or even as a gift wrap. Such pretty…

Plumy armchair from Grafunkt
Muted coral marshmallow or armchair? We can’t decide. But one thing for sure, Ligne Roset’s Plumy armchair looks and feels like a big hug. Designed by Annie Hiéronimus, this reissue of a 35-year-old design was inspired by the 80s.
