October’s Top Interior Trends


October tends to be a great month for interior trends, due in part to the changing colours associated with autumn. This year is no different, and our Interiors Team has been hard at work picking the very best October interior trends you can use as inspiration for your next furniture and furnishings shopping trip. Enjoy!


The first standout interior trend of the month is velvet, and more specifically, velvet furniture. We chose velvet as an October trend as is it one of the most comfortable materials used in seating furniture and helps to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere during colder months. Velvet armchairs like the Harriot Accent Chair seen below are incredibly soft-to-touch and are perfect for curling up on in front of an open fire. Velvet furniture can be paired with metals, ceramics and wood.

Matte Black  

The second trend of the month chosen by our Interiors Team is matte black, and in particular matte black lighting fixtures such as the opulent Matte Black Cage Pendant. Matte black is a very luxurious colour finish and as the Interiors Team points out can be combined with velvet furniture for a captivating interior that represents the richness of autumn. The tough and rugged Matte Black Cage Pendant is also a top pick for rustic interiors.

Woven Textiles

If you’re looking for something a bit more homely, then you may consider the our third trend for the month of October: woven textiles. The team chose woven textiles as they recall autumn harvests and the fruit and vegetables associated with this time of year. Typically found in the bathroom or bedroom, the Interiors Team suggests adding woven textiles like the Seagrass Baskets Trio to your living room for a wholesome and serene look.

Outdoor Furniture

Our final trend for the month of October technically isn’t an interior trend as such but one for your garden: outdoor furniture, but we will allow! Autumn is quite a beautiful season and what better way to make the most of the dwindling light and enjoy the beauty of nature then with some comfy and cosy outdoor pieces. The Interiors Team recommends choosing outdoor furniture that reflects the colours of the season, such as the glamorous Elephant Jumbo Quilted Bean Bag in Gold, which is incredibly comfortable and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

For the very best in homeware, shop in-store or online.
