we’ve made our lists, we’ve checked them twice – fancy a sneak peek?
There’s lots to love about working at furn.com, but when winter comes around and those sleighbells start ringing – feasting our eyes on all the new festive decor takes the Christmas cake. Each year our designers get cracking on a whole new line of seasonal creations, and before we know it, our cosy Leeds studio starts feeling like an all-out winter wonderland.
From the special pieces we’ve made part of our homes, to the studio show-stealers going straight on our wish-lists – here are some of the furn. team’s favourite Christmas furnishings.
Shimmeringly sweet, utterly unique – our Festive-val cushions are for anyone craving a bright and bold spin on the giving season.
Our Festive-val and Crimbo cushions boast a knitted loop cotton design, coating the entire face with warming woolly goodness. Combine that with fiery fuchsia pink and emerald velvet reverses? ‘Merry and bright’ doesn’t even begin to cover it.
From the technicoloured knits to the fluffy pom-poms on our Festive-val Baubles Cushion, our Studio Manager – and lover of all things luminous – Rea just can’t get enough:
"This year, I'm choosing the Festive-val cushions. They are SO bright and fun. My tree is neon pink, and they are a perfect match for my fun, contemporary festive interior.”
We all need a dose of traditional Christmas charm from time to time, and what better way to get in the spirit than with bedding based on a certified seasonal classic?
Forget the silent nights and faraway mangers – this design does Christmas by the dozen, speckled with magical snow globes showing every image from the eponymous carol.
When she’s not whipping up world-class visuals, our Graphic Designer Lucy loves settling down in this cosy winter creation:
"My fav Christmas product is the Twelve Days of Christmas Festive Duvet Cover Set in Red. This bedding brings the enchanting lyrics of one of my favourite Christmas carols to life.
The vibrant red hue and charming illustrations not only evoke the spirit of the song but also infuse my bedroom with a magical ambience, turning my sleep sanctuary into a festive symphony of joy and nostalgia."
Another showstopping statement from our bright and bold Christmas range, the Archie Tufted Cushion in Turquoise/Purple brings holiday spirit by the sleigh-full.
Fluffy tufted cotton winds in enchanting abstract swirls, while cotton-rich turquoise fabric keeps the festive spirit fresh. Psst! If this design’s caught your eye, our Heya Home collection is stacked with similar styles.
After a long day of running tests, cracking codes, and fine-tuning your user experience – our Lead Frontend Developer Chris loves resting his weary head on this design:
"This cushion pushes the idea of Christmas decor outside the traditional comforting and warm view that most of us probably have.
It brings about childhood memories of tinsel threaded on the tree and wraps it in a very modern way around a wonderfully soft cushion, perfect to curl up with after that always-too-large lunch."
Ask anyone their favourite part of Christmas, and (provided they’ve taken it easy on the eggnogs) you’ll almost always get the same answer: dinner!
From the endless helpings of turkey and ham right down to the cheesy paper crowns, Christmas dinner is a banquet like no other – so why not set an extra-special scene with some seasonal table linen?
If you’re feeling some family-style dining this year, our Christmas table runners make the perfect centrepiece for everyone to help themselves. We’ve also got matching Christmas placemats if you’d rather feast the old-fashioned way – but there’s always the option of going with both! Our furn.com designer Marzena is crackers about the whole range, but it’s our adorable Robin design that’s really warmed her heart:
“My favourite item from our Christmas range is the Robin Christmas Festive Table Runner. There’s something about the subtle robin design that doesn’t exactly scream Christmas, but at the same time is very festive. It’s perfect for someone like myself who isn’t very daring with home decor but loves lowkey, classic items.”
Whether you want to sleigh seamlessly through every room, make carrying cups of tea that little bit easier, or you’re just taking the open-door vibe extra seriously this year – a Christmas door stop is never a bad idea.
Our adorable designs are great for bringing those finishing touches of festive charm – filled with up to 1KG of sand and durable polyester for function that won’t let you down.
Our Copywriter Jonathan might be a wordsmith by day – but once he clocks off, the festive nostalgia kicks in:
“I love the design of the Christmas Spirit Door Stop. The traditional festive town with old shops and inns evokes memories of Christmases from a bygone era, but is drawn in a modern cartoon style.
It is perfect for holding the door open, perhaps while bringing home your Christmas shopping or decorations, instantly putting you in a festive mood!”
The decorations don’t stop at our front doors – and sometimes, it takes a whole town to make Christmas truly magical.
Our Festive Town Duvet Cover Set in White pays homage to the power of community at Christmas, capturing every little detail in a hand-drawn high street scene.
From wreaths upon doors to twinkling toy shops and the occasional last-minute shopper, there’s plenty to love about this bustling design – just ask Louisa, our Junior Designer:
“I love the pastel colours. It’s a modern twist on the traditional red and green of Christmas, whilst still capturing magic in the festive town scenes.”
Sure, we’ve already covered a seasonal table linen design, but what’s Christmas without second helpings?
Our Gold Stag Set of 4 Christmas Placemats is for those seeking a stroke of splendour at their festive table, woven and intricately printed with a rich woodland design. Strutting stags and blooming forest florals set an enchanting scene, elevating your festive feast with a burst of natural beauty.
A luxurious gold background provides the finest festive glow – and if that wasn’t enough, they’re totally machine washable, too. Our Ecommerce Account Manager Gabby is obsessed, and can’t wait to lay her table with luxe:
“A fresh perspective on festive tableware, I cannot wait to decorate my table on Christmas day with this classic yet modern design. The Gold Stag Christmas Placemats are a must this season. I love the intricate detail of classic stags, opulent fruits, and florals”.
