This season, staying in is the new going out as people hunker down and entertain in their homes rather than going out on the town. We think the new Comfort Core trend complements this perfectly. Think soft welcoming furnishings, curvy sofas, calming tones and touchable fabrics to make everyone feel even more at home.

Modular sofas

Essen Lounge Suite

If you love entertaining, My Furniture’s Essen Sofas go all the way from Two-Seat to Five-Seat Sofas (starting from £1099.99) and come in straight lines or curvaceous corner sofas, with additional modules available. Most luxurious of all is the nearly semi-circular Essen Lounge Suite, seating up to nine people in a spacious living area. My Furniture’s new addition to this collection is the eminently tactile Cream Chenille, which looks beautiful on this range, inspired by luxurious 1970s Californian interiors, and neatly embraces the Comfort Core trend.

Layer up

Madras Pink Check Throw

Add layers of comfort to your living space with cushions, rugs and throws. This beautiful Madras Pink Check Throw (from £65) and Cushion (from £55) are from Weaver Green, who make all of their home wares from recycled plastic bottles, which are spun into yarn to feel as soft and comforting as wool.

Boutique bathroom

Swadling Brassware Brushed Gold

If staying in is the new going out, take the opportunity to turn your bathroom into one that wouldn’t be out of place in a boutique hotel. This could be as simple as updating your accessories, such as adding a stylish soap dispenser, scent diffuser, houseplant and shapely mirror. If you have a bit more money, consider updating your taps. The basin mixer shown here is from Swadling Brassware’s Invincible Collection, available in a choice of finishes including Brushed Gold. 

Glam bar stools

Treat yourself to some glamorous bar stools to give your evening-in a boutique bar feel. These curvy Lasco Bar Stools, in Dove Grey with brushed brass base, from My Furniture (from £239.99) look stunning against the cool clean lines of this dreamy kitchen from @lewislane_selfbuildni.

Curvaceous kitchens

Comfort core embraces curves and, if you start counting, there are lots of round shapes in this kitchen from @threebirdsrenovations. Not least, the fabulous curved kitchen island. Rounding the edges of an island softens the overall look of a kitchen. Here it is complemented perfectly with the curvy vase, pendant light, fruit bowl, chopping board and stools.

Cosy up

Yeti Rug

Sheepskin rugs are a great way to add some tactile elements into your home. These Yeti Rugs are super-deep, light and fluffy and available in grey or ivory, to blend with most décor schemes. Available from Celtic & Co from £99.

Comfort core bedding

Ted Baker Bedding

Choose calming colours to help you drift off into serenity. This fabulous bedding, in Delphinium blue, from Ted Baker, is available from Amara. Priced from £129 for a Kings Size Duvet Cover. Alongside this romantic French-style bed, it looks fit for Marie Antoinette herself. 

Make your bathroom a cosy place to hang out

Matki Eclipse Shower

Add soft, cosy textures to your bathroom to entice you to spend more time relaxing in there. Sumptuous towels, plush bath rugs, cushions and throws look beautiful and can add some colour and texture to a bathroom. We’d love a window seat like this one. Featuring the Eclipse Collection Corner Shower Enclosure from Matki (from £1354.80).

Transform your outdoor space

Andalucia Granada Rug

It’s never too early to consider your outdoor space. Make your guests feel even more at home with some gorgeous outdoor rugs, throws and cushions. The new Andalucia Granada Rug blends designs from Andalucia and North Africa in soft teal, coral, gold and grey.  Available from Weaver Green from £165. Weaver Green’s products are made from recycled plastic bottles, so they are water-resistant, stain-resistant and washable.

Dive into a comfy bed

Fred Blush Pink Bed Linen

Sink into the comfort core theme in your bedroom. Choose natural colours, fabrics and materials. We love this new Fred Brushed Cotton Blush Pink Bed Linen from the Secret Linen Store (from £69 for a double duvet cover). The responsibly sourced cotton has been washed and combed to give it the softest, cosiest finish.
