With the Christmas season rapidly approaching and inspired by John Lewis's Christmas trends for 2023, we, at The Chair People, have thoughtfully selected fabrics from renowned fabric houses to infuse an extra layer of luxury and comfort into your homes. Join us on a journey through six Christmas-inspired trends that will bring the warmth and festive spirit to your spaces.
Trend no. 1: Christmas Cottage
The Christmas Cottage trend features warm copper tones, elegant gold accents, and a rich colour palette, perfectly complementing John Lewis's chosen colour of the season, damson. To enhance this theme, we've thoughtfully paired it with Anthology Ikko in Oxide by Harlequin Fabrics, adding grandeur, opulence and a deep and luxurious texture, further enhancing the richness of the Christmas Cottage trend. It complements the warm colour palette, creating a sumptuous and inviting atmosphere.
Trend no. 2: Winter Fairytale
For those yearning for a winter wonderland look, the Winter Fairytale trend centers around a frosted colour palette, paired with Effetto in Ivory by Clarke and Clarke, capturing a cozy, rustic charm. Icy whites, and gentle greys, conjure the serene beauty of a winter landscape, setting the stage for a magical Christmas at home.
Trend no. 3: Rainbow Time Capsule
The Rainbow Time Capsule trend aims to bring the humour in our everyday moments to life, boldly paired with Habanera Peony by Romo Fabrics, infusing playfulness and vivacity. The trend is brought to life with a playful and colourful palette, offering a cheerful nod to the pop-culture trends that have left an indelible mark on our collective memories.
Trend no. 4: Polar Planet
Influenced by our growing appreciation for the natural world and the demand for sustainable products, the Polar Planet trend focuses on organic shapes, white and green colour palettes, and textures. To enhance this theme, we've selected Omega, evergreen by Linwood, their first sustainable velvet fabric made with 60% recycled polyester making it the perfect fabric for an eco-conscious Christmas.
Trend no. 5: Royal Fairytale
John Lewis has identified Royal Fairytale as their Christmas theme for 2023, focusing on candlelit castles, luxurious banquettes, and mythical creatures, adding a regal touch to your festive celebrations. To complement this theme, we've chosen the Koto Lake fabric by Black Edition. With its luxurious feel and intricate design, it adds sophistication to the Royal Fairytale trend, invoking the opulence of a grand palace and setting the scene for a truly majestic Christmas season.
Trend no. 6: Beyond Christmas
The Beyond trend embraces high decor and high-shine appeal, centered around futuristic elements, space, and technology, paired with Cantata Navy by GP & Baker to add a touch of elegance and innovation. Cantat perfectly complements this theme, with its high-shine appeal and modern design. It adds a touch of sophistication and innovation, creating a unique and futuristic atmosphere for your Christmas festivities.
