Hot Tropics – Five of the best home accessories

By 16th June 2017 No Comments

From jungle prints to playful pineapples, exotic furnishings are all the rage this summer. Here’s our pick of the best…

1. Pineapple Wallpaper

Symbolising friendship, welcome and hospitality, the pineapple is making a big splash in interiors right now. We love the unexpected red and pink colourway of this striking wallpaper, conceived by talented duo Vanessa Barneby and Alice Gates of Barneby Gates, £81 for a 10-metre roll.

2. Vitra Panton Chair

Nothing conjures a tropical feel more than a hit of sunshine yellow. And all the better if it takes the form of a modern classic that’s made to withstand outdoor elements too. Vitra’s Panton chair in Sunlight is just as at home on the terrace as it is indoors. A multi-purpose dose of summer. £210, John Lewis.

3. Ananas Pineapple Lamp Stand

We love the playful, irreverent nature of House of Hackney’s vivid designs, and this retro-style lampstand complete with jungle-inspired shade will introduce an on-trend tropical note. Ananas Pineapple Lampstand, £475 and Palmeral Daley Lampshade, £130.

4. Tropical palm print cushion

A bold jungle print cushion is the perfect way to introduce a tropical pop to an otherwise muted scheme. Try a classic colourway, such as the greys and yellows of this vivid cushion, £35, by Little Paradise at Notonthehighstreet.com. An easy way to pep up a monotone sofa.

5. Green palm and trellis plates

Botanical dinnerware packs a punch inside and out. For something really special, we’re wowed by Irving & Morrison’s handmade Portuguese ceramics, which are almost too good to dine from. Try layering them on top of a vibrant tablecloth in a complementary colourway. £57 at Lorfords.
