Lounging at home has become everyone’s favourite past-time, and, on those days when the sun isn’t shining, there’s nothing better than retreating to our own indoor cocoons. To embrace the Cool Cocooning trend, think comforting curvy sofas, natural woods, soothing tones of neutral and pastel colours and anything else that makes us feel even more at home.
James Pilling, Head of Design, at My Furniture, says, “There’s been a shift away from the more formal arrangement of two sofas facing each other, in favour of more relaxed, curvaceous shapes that provide both comfort and ample space for entertaining.” This Equinox Chalk three seater sofa with brass base, from My Furniture, is not only bang on trend but looks like the perfect place to curl up after a busy day (£2199.99).
Add a romantic feel with some unlined blinds to enhance cosiness. These Lumiere Unlined Ahisma Luxe Faux Silk Mist Roman Blinds from Blinds 2go (from £23.85, made-to-measure) soften daylight and add an airy and elegant finish.

Cocoon your Bathroom
Use soft colours and natural textures to create a bathroom you want to spend more time in. Gold and bronze finishes add a cool, luxurious feel to this bathroom featuring the EauZone Plus Radius-20 Shower Enclosure from Matki.
There’s no one like the Scandinavians for embracing the art of cool cocooning. This Bergen Oak Dressing Table (from £525) from Cox & Cox is the perfect place to pamper yourself, especially when paired with the Sheepskin Dressing Table Stool (from £325).
Curvy Chaise Longue
Nothing says luxury like a chaise longue. Perfect for bedrooms, snugs and cosy living spaces. Unfurl yourself after a stressful day at work and stretch out on this gorgeous, sculptural, Selini Chaise Longue in Chalk from My Furniture (from £749.99).
Cocoon your Bedroom
Make your bedroom your own personal cocoon with natural colours, fabrics and materials. We love this French Ticking Stripe Natural Bed Linen from the Secret Linen Store (from £95 for a double duvet cover).
Introduce natural textures to give yourself a lovely cocooned feeling. Such as furnishings made of wood, wicker or rattan, natural fibre rugs, linen bedding and woven lampshades. We love this beautiful Moonstone Wooden Blind from Blinds 2go (from £23.25, made-to-measure). The wooden slats are painted in soft grey with a hint of mushroom to give a cool, cosy feel.
Scent your room
Breathing in the fragrance from a gorgeous candle will make you feel all warm inside. This First Light candle from SwoonWorthy Scents (from £35) evokes the feeling of a quiet morning bathed in the pink of a promising new dawn. And, even better, these candles are plant-based, vegan friendly and have a lead-free woven cotton wick.
Cocoon yourself with cosy lighting. This Christophe Tri-Bulb Pendant Light from My Furniture (from £29.99) pays homage to iconic, industrial, 1950s New York. The three filament bulbs are typical of the 1950s and add a touch of elegance and sophistication to this pendant light.
Your bedroom is the ideal spot for creating a relaxing space to unwind. Layer up cushions, bedspreads and throws to make an inviting place to relax. We love this look from John Lewis, featuring the Morris & Co Honeysuckle & Tulip Velvet Cushion (from £65). Image by @JL_Lottie.
