Beat a path to the New & Now Pinboard and get one step ahead. There’s a huge selection of the latest patterns, colours and textures from the Who’s Who of the international design world. While the trends give us the mood, it is these new collections that we will build our schemes around. You’ll soon have a shopping list of the swatches you like (or just really, passionately, want) to give your home a new-season spin.
