“While there is a sense of safety in the familiar, we cannot ignore the call to break out and express our true selves. Comeback speaks to this innately creative desire, inspiring us to blend contemporary design cues with vintage pieces. Comeback blends eclectic style with vintage charm to create a rich and layered aesthetic that feels expressive in its maximalism, yet reassuringly familiar.”

“The time has come to nurture and regenerate. As we disconnect from the harsh white filters of the digital sphere, reconnect with the elements of nature: verdant earth, clean air, natural light. Home is no longer a place to rest and recover, it’s somewhere to rejuvenate and inspire. Personal wellbeing comes to the fore and we seek out the soothing, calm refuge of home where we can rest, re-focus and regenerate.”

It’s the perfect antidote to our busy, high-stress lives, finding the rose-tinted glasses to reignite our romance with hearth and home. Cocoon yourself in comfort with rich layers of luxurious fabric and decadently rounded forms. It’s the perfect combination to create an immersive and opulent interior.”
