Fashion Week Interior Inspiration: Denim

Posted on Feb 18, 2016 by

With London Fashion Week fast approaching there’s no better time to draw interiors inspiration from the catwalk. This week the Warehouse Home team have had their eyes on denim. In the fashion industry, denim is constantly reinvented yet always fashion-friendly. And its varied colours and textures have not gone unappreciated by the interior design world either. In 2016, the fashion trend is towards lightweight denim; ideal for the summer months. Stonewashed jeans are being combined with deep indigo denims. Meanwhile, shades of indigo, often combined with grey, will define striking interiors this year. From quirky reupholstered vintage furniture to attractive floor coverings here are some of our favourite fashion-forward ways to bring denim into the home.

A deeper denim looks great with a palette of metallics and grey. And, as you can see above, the sturdy cotton perfectly complements a raw concrete floor as an unusual sectional rug. Find a large square of denim with selvedge edges to emphasise the industrial chic aesthetic.

If you’re looking to embrace the denim trend on a larger scale, why not consider a denim-upholstered sofa? Hard-wearing denim makes a practical – and on-trend – upholstery solution. Rule Britannia with Union Jack accessories!

Also in the vein of stylish seating is this mid-century chair, reupholstered in a combination of denim and upcycled vintage postal sacks.

Meanwhile, this herringbone pattern of lighter and darker denims has given this vintage lounge chair a quirky contemporary makeover.

Ok, it’s another chair….But we had to share this beautifully crafted chair from Skandium. It’s the result of a design collaboration between Nudie Jeans and Swedese, to mark the Swedish furniture brand’s 70th anniversary. The signature Nudie Jeans deep dark denim contrasts with the light beech veneer frame.

Finally, if we’ve not convinced you to use denim itself, why not take inspiration and channel the jean-related colours in your interiors. A denim blue and grey palette is ideal for the exposed brickwork and a grey flagstone floor of this warehouse. The enormous mural creates a focal point and tempers the raw industrial nature of the space.
