Adding a Splash of Colour to our Living Room with the DFS Capsule Collection

Our living room has been crying out for a splash of colour for a while now. When we first moved in (five years ago) we painted the room grey and filled the room with grey furniture… as a result it lacked character and looked like a scene from an old black and white film. I knew it needed something but how and what colour?

I played around with different cushions and throws but they didn’t really work. Then, a few months ago I went to a preview event of the new DFS Capsule Collection (here’s a post I did following the event) and spotted this mustard chair. I was drawn to it immediately, I loved the style, the colour and the fabric, and above all it was incredibly comfortable.

The DFS Capsule Collection is a range contemporary sofas, armchairs, and foot-stools that are stylish and perfectly sized for smaller spaces. The whole collection is available in 55 different fabrics and 4 different feet options – in chrome, copper, light and dark wood.

I was so taken by the chair I saw at the preview event that I placed an order for two velvet, mustard armchairs and a matching footstool for our ‘grey’ living room. I chose the Wing Chairs (£379 each) with copper legs, and a matching Hexagon Footstool (£159).

I’m so pleased with the result, they fit perfectly and have given the room a new look and feel. As I’ve already mentioned, the chairs are incredibly comfortable and are my new favourite spot in the house.

5 Reasons why I’m so impressed by new the Capsule Collection by DFS

  1. Each sofa, armchair and footstool comes with a wide variety of fabric options, so you’re able to create a piece of furniture that’s personal to your own style and taste.
  2. The collection offers fantastic value for money on furniture that’s hand-made here in the UK.
  3. Every season the Capsule Collection brings out new limited edition textile designs from emerging British talent. I just love that they’re working with young designers in this way!
  4. Each piece comes with a 15 year guarantee.
  5. The whole collection is style-led, accessible and perfect for small spaces.

    They do look incredible comfy. We’re after a new sofa and armchair for our grey and white living room – we currently have black leather but I want something a little softer this time. Will have a look at DFS as that’s where we got our last one from – there seems to be even more choice now than there was 9 years ago when we last invested!

    I love everything about them! Grey with mustard is a favourite of mine but those copper legs are dreamy. And I’m also a huge fan of cute, compact furniture. They look great Heledd. Good choice! x

    The sofas before the ones we have now were DFS and lasted so well. I think it’s sometimes easy to forget how good quality their products are. I don’t know where our current sofas originated from, but they’re not a patch on our last ones! xx
