Kind of blue velvet

I’ve just arrived home after housesitting a beautiful Glasgow apartment. It’s not the kind of place that’s had money thrown at it, instead, the owners have lavished the high-ceilinged Victorian space with care, thought and consideration, and it more than pays off.  There is nothing superfluous or showy, mostly antique warehouse and junk shop finds, or family pieces; form follows function, always.

Now that I’m back home, and please don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful to have one, suddenly everything seems shabby without even a hint of chic, particulary the much-loved but threadbare sofa which looks more like a Turner Prize entry with the layered physicality of family life portrayed in mixed media stains and conceptually layered pieces.

In short, I want a new sofa just like the in this image sent to me by Sterling Furniture.

Gorgeous isn’t it. In fact I want to live in this blue room filled with the ‘vibrant velvet jewel-like hues’ of the Kaleidoscope collection, which stretches from storage stools to wing back chairs and large corner sofas in shades of mustard, lilac, chartreuse, red, pink, violet and turquoise.

I want to paint my floorboards blue too, and take the walls back to the original brick, and carefully curate a collection of European glassware; but I’ll settle for the sofa, although first I’d need to banish the three cats, ban my daughter from sleeping on it, and give up using it as a reclining dining zone.

The collection is available at Sterling Furniture’s Tillicoultry store, with prices starting at £279.99 for a storage stool, .  The family owned company was founded by George Knowles in 1974, has nine Sterling sites across Scotland, plus an online shop www.sterlingfurniture.co.uk
