Where summertime asks for fresh colours and floral patterns, autumn is more suited to ambient tones, roaring fires and darker palettes.
Burnt oranges, aubergine purples, olive greens and dark burgundies are a great starting point. After that, it’s simply a case of finding the perfect fabric to suit your home décor.
Some things in life were made for each other: fish and chips, strawberries and cream, salt and pepper. But one of the best pairings during the cosy season has to be deep tones and soft furnishings.
Deep oranges, fiery reds and golden browns mimic the tawny colours of autumn leaves, while darker colours, such as rich cocoas and punchy maroons take on the shades of early sunsets and dark nights.
Bring this look into your home with these autumn sofa colours:
The Hendon Stria fabric offers the look and feel of a night-in, served up with a cup of hot cocoa (with whipped cream, of course). Part-acrylic, part-polyester, this fabric is designed to be as hardwearing as a pair of winter tyres.
Deep red with a subtle tweed effect, our Slub range is one of our most comforting fabrics – ideal for those who love to wind (or wine) down with a glass of vino.
Good grape! This colour from our Amalia range offers the perfect balance between dark and vibrant tones. Beautifully woven and with a thick pile, this fabric was made for open fires, mugs of tea and cosy blankets.
Weathered leaves, ochre branches and pretty foliage are the motifs of the cosy season. Introduce these patterns to plain décors for a pop of autumnal magic.
Here are some of our favourite autumn motifs:
A classic pattern with an Aztec edge, our Archive Motif prints are perfect for traditional homes. Made with 100% polyester, this busy pattern harmonises light browns and reds, instantly injecting personality to simple décors.
Nothing says “autumn” quite like the decorative Willow prints from our Lakeside range. With their swirling, almost hypnotic design, you’ll be hard pressed to find a fabric which “hugs” the senses as much as this.
Capturing the beautiful transformation of green, red and brown leaves during autumn, this fabulous Katie design is just what you need when the early nights draw in.
If you prefer clean lines, simple shapes and a pared-back aesthetic, we have the perfect autumnal sofa range for you.

Tartan rarely goes out of fashion for long, so it’s no wonder than our Glencoe Tartan is one of our most popular patterns. Burnt oranges blend with bronze undertones to deliver a warm aesthetic, while a hint of cool blue adds a touch of elegance.
The colour might be named ‘Antique’ but this pattern is anything but dated. The Hestia design’s dusky reds and earthy browns are subtle enough to match any chic décor, while subtle Paul Smith stripes add a contemporary twist.
Paisley is a surprising stand-out pattern during the colder months. While it may have got its start in sunny Persia (modern-day Iran), this pattern from our Mirabelle range has deep, autumnal undertones.
