With a new season underway, I was keen to pop along to BoConcept Manchester recently, to check out their brand new arrivals for autumn.
There’s a large, impressive furniture showroom in the Ancoats area of the city that’s lovely to have a browse around. It has just been re-decorated with fabulous autumnal wall colours and styled up to give lots of inspiration to help you furnish your own home. I ended up spending a couple of hours perusing and swooning over the four new trends and their delicious colour palettes that have just been released.
The collections are called Mood Blue, Home Grown (featuring gorgeous greens), Solid Earth (rich reds and earthy tones) and Icon Brown. They are all perfect for capturing autumnal feels and as you wander around the room sets you can’t help wanting to cosy up on the inviting sofas and armchairs – and visualise them in your own home!
If you asked me for my very favourite pieces, it would be a hard task, but I think one of them would be this stunning dining set because it’s something you’d only have to purchase once and then love forever. The beautiful NEW ‘Madrid’ circular table has a cone shaped, handmade base crafted from the smoothest of concrete (I know because I stroked it!) while the organic form of those fabulous ‘Ottowa’ chairs, featuring petal shaped seats and twig-like legs are just exquisitely beautiful.
Also, who could possibly resist the stunner that is the Imola armchair, on display in the showroom looking resplendent in the most amazing shade of orange velvet. Just check out those curves! So comfy and one of those timeless designs that BoConcept is very accomplished at creating; crafting quality pieces that you’ll love and treasure for years to come.
For lovers of Danish design you’re utterly spoiled for choice at the showroom in Manchester. Another aspect to love is the fact that all the seating is customisable – colour and fabric wise you can select from a wide choice. Whether you like things in bold and beautiful hues or soft, subtle tones. Everything can be upholstered to your liking; this sleek ‘Osaka’ sofa for example which is on display in the showroom features ‘Turquoise Napoli’ fabric and aluminium legs; but if you were looking for a forest green velvet sofa with brass legs this season, no problem – the Osaka can be produced accordingly.
I love the level of versatility BoConcept Manchester can offer you and your home – and with a free interior design service, too, you can’t go wrong. If you are local to the North West region, I highly recommend a visit to the Ancoats showroom as there is nothing like sitting on a sofa or at a dining table and feeling the quality of the materials, not forgetting to mention the importance of appreciating the dimensions in real life. And while you are there you can pick up a catalogue for page after page of additional gorgeous home inspiration (or request your copy here ). Why not also sign up for the newsletter, so you’re never out of the loop?
BoConcept Manchester shared with me that there are some very exciting special offer weekends coming up in October where you can save 15% on all orders with guaranteed Christmas delivery! The dates for your diary are Friday 5th to Sunday 7th October and Friday 12th to Sunday 14th October.
If you know that you’ll be entertaining guests, putting relatives up in the spare room etc. then giving your home a refresh with a cosy new rug and some different accessories might be in order – or perhaps even buying a new larger dining table or a plush sofa for the ultimate in Christmas comfort and style? If so, it definitely makes sense to order soon to be ahead of the festive rush!
