With winter days drawing ever closer, we’re eager for our homes to evoke a warm, welcoming feeling. If we can’t live in the tropics we might as well imitate them, hence our new home collection Gloriental. Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen has kindly designed knock-out pieces of furniture and decorative home accessories with a truly Eastern feel. Take a look at our top picks and be inspired.
Let’s start with the Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Gloriental Ready Assembled Coffee Table, because it truly is a lovely centrepiece. Practical but with a glorious red and gold finish, this table can hide away all those ugly necessities – think TV remote, takeaway menus – and house beautiful books on top too. Also of the impact variety is the Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Gloriental Printed Harem Screen. This divider can be used for its purpose, or simply placed in a key area of your living room to wow guests with.
Our Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Gloriental Wool Rug comes in a variety of colours but we love this striking black design to coincide with the rest of the range. Place the dramatic Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Lust in the Dust Canvas on the main wall for a touch of artwork, and don’t stop there when it comes to decoration either.
The Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Gloriental Cage Decorative Balls (Set of 3) would look wonderful on the aforementioned coffee table or centrally on a fireplace, as would the Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Courtesan Trinket Box – Rock Star Silver. Keep precious family heirlooms safe or simply admire the box itself. Place the Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Bonjout Boudoir Mirror above a side table or by a door for a touch of elegance and, let’s face it, admiration. Then buy a number of our Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Baroque ‘n’ Roll Wall Swirl to dot about the place.
