Get the showroom look in your home with these 4 Fire & Co collections
Our interiors Expert in Residence, Fire & Co, spill their interior design secrets.
Ok, so we know you know Fire & Co by now. Who can forget their stunning, 7,000-square-feet of showroom, packed to the rafters with luxurious furniture and home décor?
We’re not sure about you, but after spending so much time inside over the last year, we’re sick of the sight of our four walls. And whenever we visit Fire & Co, we can’t help but wish we could just pick up any one of their gorgeous interiors collections and plonk them right in the middle of our homes.
But this is exactly why Fire & Co are our Expert in Residence for all things interiors – because, as it turns out, we can do just that. Especially now the brand’s director, Skye-Alexander Ferry, has given us the lowdown on just how we can ‘get the look’ of four of this season’s most popular home collections.
From classic monochrome vibes to copper tonal panelling and bright feature walls, Fire & Co have everything we could ever dream of (and more) to help bring some showroom style into our homes – while keeping plenty of personality in there, too.
Mr Ferry, take it away…
Fancy a classy interior that’ll never go out of style? Don’t we all. That’s why we love Fire & Co’s Mono collection. Based heavily around black and grey tones, Fire & Co play with this traditional style by cheekily mixing in a variety of textures with the more classic, super-clean lines to give your home a real sense of luxury.
‘The mono collection works well with a velvet grey sofa, black tiles and black halfway paint,’ Skye explains. ‘Then, to add a different dimension to the straight lines here, we’ve brought in circular coffee tables – one solid, one hollow. The room works especially well when centred around an abstract piece of art.’
Need a little more zen in your life? Can relate. That’s why we’ve got a lot of love for Fire & Co’s Freckle collection. Centred around the combination of earthy, natural tones with decorative examples of sheer bohemian luxe, Freckle really gives you that warm, homely feel while maintaining a stylish sophistication.
‘For this collection, we only used the best in quality and the most luxurious feature pieces,’ says Skye. ‘We also incorporated the use of rattan and wood, mixed with straight lines and contrasting, curvaceous upholstery.’
With chances of a holiday this year looking very slim, why not bring those relaxing hideaway feels into your home? Fire and Co’s Monteveràd collection was inspired by a small town in Costa Rica that sits right next to a luscious green rainforest, known for its dark wood trees.
‘This look is centred around a strong use of greens alongside black and dark woods,’ explains Skye. ‘We’ve added the natural linen from the super luxurious shake sofa to give the room a real feature piece, which still complements the Costa Rica-inspired ambience.’
Summer is here, so what better reason to inject a bright pop of colour into your home? We hardly need an excuse, especially when we clapped eyes on Fire & Co’s New OXI collection. But what we love most about this one is that it won’t fade with the British summer – and will look as warm and cosy in the winter months as it looks fresh and bright in the sunshine.
‘New OXI is based around a copper tonal pallet, with the heavy use of mustard and natural materials such as granite, black marble and stone,’ Skye tells us. ‘This is an ideal look for someone who wants to create a bit more of a moodier interior, while still having that bright feature wall.’
