To us, 'Romantic Interiors' means curved lines, a gentle flow of natural themes and soft textures. The inviting allure of plush tactile design and rich colours, paired with moody lighting is the key to intimate interiors.

Tie together your space with natural materials

The sensuality of a space that demonstrates a natural flow of ideas is undeniable. Incorporating natural materials into your home will give each room a feeling of authenticity and unity. The earthy tones of teak, terracotta and lava stone juxtaposed with the sleek elegance of concrete and glass will create a beautiful completeness. 

Curved lines and plush textures

Romantic interiors demand sensuously soft textures and generally tactile design. To achieve this, we suggest incorporating curved lines into your interiors to create a sense of invitation. For example, a sofa with curved armrests and generously plumped cushions, upholstered in a plush material such as velvet… Heaven. 

Moody lighting

Creating an intimate ambience is all about the lighting. A romantic golden glow should be radiating in any room in want of a cosy atmosphere. Our secret? Lamps with natural shades in rich colours, such as our Harvard Table Lamp with a black shade. The open weave linen creates a glow that doesn’t glare and will transform the ambience of any room.

Raft’s Valentine’s Day must-haves…

This year, it’s a luxury to be spending Valentine’s Day with your significant other. However, a Zoom date and a gift can be just as special and certainly will be one to remember. So, we created a little round up of must-haves for Valentine’s Day, to make it a night to remember. 

1. Teak Serving Board

Valentine’s Day date idea? A sharing platter on a Raft Teak Serving Board, smattered with all your favourite foods. We naturally gravitate towards antipasti and cheese boards but sweet treats from popcorn to chocolate work just as well. Our serving boards are characterised by a rustic authenticity. The fact that no two are the same makes them such a special Valentine’s staple. 

2. Lambswool Herringbone Throw

Granted, lockdown has made movie nights a commonplace activity… But that’s even more reason to refresh your lounging space and dress your sofa with a luxurious throw to accompany your Valentine’s movie night. Relax in the plush comfort of our soft Lambswool Herringbone Throw. This beautifully cosy throw is the perfect blanket to cosy up with on the sofa with your significant other. 

4. Clara Champagne Glass

Nothing marks an occasion like the pop of a champagne bottle. Naturally, such an event must be accompanied by stylish glassware. We would recommend our Smoke Champagne Flute for a contemporary, stylish option or our Clara Champagne Glass for a timeless elegance. Hand-blown with a delicate fluted surface.
