Loaf Spring Collection Top 5: Sofas, Furniture and Accessories

Our Top 5 from Loaf’s new Spring collection!

We’ve been taking a look at what’s new on the high street with the Loaf Spring collection of sofas, kitchen tables and accessories. There are some great new designs that we’re happy to say go pretty much perfectly with our recent colour schemes and design ideas!

Comfort in contemporary colours

For lovers of yellow and concrete, Loaf’s Weekender sofa in Meteor Grey  (£1195) is a smart choice with its high arms, oak legs and warm grey finish. And they’ve paired it with a mustard cushion too!

Which bring us to probably our favourite new piece in the Loaf spring collection, the Tux sofa from £995 with its brass-tipped legs and 1920s style. Even more fitting in Burnt Yellow vintage velvet, we can see this one in front of some yellow and grey feature wallpaper from MissPrint, especially in the corner of a large bedroom.

Laid back New England luxury

We also featured a New England-inspired colour scheme recently, with muted blues, green glass and pale woods. We think Loaf’s Jonesy corner sofa would work well in that one and the fabric they’re showcasing right now is Sea Salt vintage linen, so that would fit well in our dream Cape Cod retreat. Twin this pale blue with white-painted wood and natural matting for the whole laid-back seascape feel. We’ve got to admit, we’re not usually crazy for corner sofas, but this one really stands out.

Another sofa that would fit the New England look is the Pavlova chaise (£1895)  in Pebble, or in Sea Salt. One of the hallmarks of the New England style is laid back luxury (think beautifully painted verandas, Edward Hopper paintings, and a lobster roll). This chaise would fit the style perfectly as it has that mix of structured and relaxed that speaks of lazy evenings on the Cape.

Industrial Chic in the Loaf Spring collection

We’ve also written a lot about industrial chic and the French vintage style. The Kitchen Zinc table from Loaf would work with both of those styles. It has the laid-back feel of a country kitchen and the luxury of solid oak. And moreover, this distinctive zinc trim will get beautifully worn and characterful. You know, from all those elbows, sticky fingers and glasses of wine from your mid-week suppers. It’s a really nice piece in a style we haven’t seen before. We’d go for the medium one for £745
