Comfortcore the cosy home interior trend

Have you heard of comfortcore? It’s the new hot interiors trend on the block and it’s all about home comforts and making your home feel cosy – right up our street!

It’s a funny time of year just now – we’re over the worst of the winter but spring isn’t properly here yet. The days are getting longer, but it’s still a long time until the clocks change. We might have more daylight, but it’s still cold and grey out there.

That’s why the new Comfortcore trend is ticking a few boxes for us right now. It’s all about nesting and creating a retreat inside your home where you can retreat from the world. Think luxurious fabrics such as velvet and wool, lots of texture and soft, curved shapes – the whole thing should feel like a hug. We’ve tracked down five ‘splurge’ and five ‘save’ options so there’s something to suit any budget.

Comfortcore velvet throws

Soft, cosy fabrics and warm snuggly throws are an essential component of comfortcore. Pop a throw on your sofa so you have an extra layer to retreat under when you need it, or add one to the end of your bed. Velvet is the ultimate fabric for comfortcore luxury.
