Inject a touch of luxe into your space with rich, textural fabrics, furniture and accessories
1 Velvet overground
Rich velvets take centre stage in Designers Guild's new Zambelli collection. Charming vintage styles are fused with modern twists for a vibrant, evocative look. We particularly love the rose-strewn Mathura range, featured on the sofa above.

2 Cut some rug
If you're planning to give your space a luxe facelift, don't forget the floors. Check out the exquisite range of carpets at The Rug Company, where the ancient craft of rug-making is artfully fused with the creativity of some of the world's best-known designers, including Diane von Furstenberg, Alexander McQueen, David Rockwell and Paul Smith. The intricate, hand-knotted Silhouette by designer Jaime Hayon will enrich any space.

3 A refreshing change
We can't get enough of the new Refresh Collection by the Australia-based Signature Prints. An extensive range of eye-catching patterns and bold colourways means there's a design here to suit everybody's tastes. We're coveting the Egrets wallpaper, with its plush colour scheme and striking avian motif.

4 Going for gold
L'Objet's latest collection, The Cabinet of Curiosities, features 63 beautifully crafted pieces of dinnerware, tableware and home accessories. The brand, which was founded in 2004 and is currently available from Tanagra stores in the UAE, specialises in high-end home accessories handcrafted by skilled artisans in Europe and Asia, using porcelain and other precious materials. A highlight of the new range is the Gold Carousel collection, which was designed to capture the movement of an antique Persian carousel.

5 Expand your vision
For uber-glam furniture, look no further than the Visionnaire collection at Aati. High-quality Italian leathers and fabrics, smoked glass, marble, stainless steel and wood dominate, making for a decidedly stylish offering.
