Using chalky shades of pink in a cool, contemporary way

Softly sophisticated

With its concrete floors and bare plaster walls, this cool modern space called out for a restrained contemporary look, but it was important that it did not become cols and impersonal. Using pink in a totally modern way was an inspired move, and the sof blossom sofa led the way. The shape is low and simple, contemporary yet comfortable, yet upholstered in leather or dark wool it would have dictated a completely different mood. Here, like a classic, beautifully tailored suit in a clear unexpected colour, the effect of the pale pink is charming, immediately bringing a lightness of touch that is carried through to the flowers and other details.
