  • Top 5 Scottish Inspired Designs

    By Debbie Watson

    With the Edinburgh Art and Fringe Festivals both in full swing throughout August, we’re putting our top five pieces inspired by Scotland under the spotlight. If you happen to be visiting, why not pop along to Commercial Quay and say hello to the friendly folk at our Edinburgh showroom.

    1. TARTAN

    Some would say a cliché, but we say a classic. We couldn’t do a list of top five pieces with a Scottish flavour without mentioning the famous checked design. Our tartan comes in a warm red check with flecks of green and yellow for a traditional feel across cushions and throws. Perfect for adding just a hint of the Highlands to your scheme, without overdoing it.



    2. THE STAG

    A Scottish icon (and the largest land mammal in Britain), celebrate this majestic beast with our metal Stag Head Coat Hook, which features a main hook for coats or bags (and additional hanging space on his antlers). This would make a great present (particularly for the person who has everything) as it is both quirky and useful.

    3. ANTLERS

    If you feel a bit uneasy showcasing real antlers in your décor, then our range of Antler Lamps and Candle Holders are the next best thing. Metal 'antlers' entwine to create beautiful and sculptural pieces, and their abstract design makes it hard to tell at first glance what they are. Unsurprisingly, this range is one of our bestsellers north of the border, and it will make a great addition to your scheme, particularly during the winter months.

    Heather and lavender have a lot in common. Both are beautiful, purple and emblematic of their home territory: Heather of the Scottish moors and lavender of fields further south. If you want to capture some of that summer flowering beauty then you can enjoy a beautiful purple wildflower all year round with our Faux Lavender, which looks just as good as the real thing and comes in a sweet little pot.



    5. FAUX FUR

    For all its beauty there’s no denying that Scotland can be a little chilly. Wrap up in one of our realistic Faux Fur Throws, which are backed with fleece for extra warmth. Available in a choice of ‘furs’ (and there are three new ones arriving this Autumn), they’re ideal for draping over an armchair, sofa or the end of a bed. Just a word of warning: they’re particularly popular with pets, so you may have to share.
