Pops of complimentary colours can also be seen flaunted upon soft velvets with contrasts to the geometric and rigid shapes of nature inspired products such as the rock side table.

This followed their previous win at the International Design and Architecture Awards, for the seductive Hughes Sofa, judged by experts in the industry.
