Home furnishings at their best...

Get cosy with James St…

Kick up your feet, grab a book, and get the fire started, because winter on James Street is looking pretty darn good.

Although winter hasn’t completely graced us with its chill (yet), there’s no harm in creating an inviting, warm and beautiful space with the hope that it’ll eventually cool down. Whether it’s a plush sofa from Pottery Barn, or soft bed linen from Jardan, you can be sure that James Street knows how to get cosy.

Here are a few pieces that’ll go great with that hot chocolate you’re about to make.



Pottery Barn

If your idea of winter is flannelette pyjamas, roasted chestnuts and plush sofas, then Pottery Barn is probably your go-to for winter living. The ‘Cameron Roll’ arm sofa is made from eco-friendly materials and features some seriously soft plush cushions. Drape a chunky knit blanket over the middle, add mixed soft-toned cushions, and finish with a cuppa – you’re sorted for a warm night in.



If this Zoe by Verzelloni lounge set from Stylecraft doesn’t make you want to take a 3 month nap, then who knows what will. Distinguished by its comfort and design, this lounge chair is the perfect statement piece for the living room. Oh, and it also comes in both a fabric and leather finish!


Space Furniture

If you’re a warm-drink-on-the-sofa kind of person, then you’ll love this lil’ side table from Space Furniture. Made with brushed oak and lined with leather, this table is just the right bit of elegance and sophistication perfect for a formal living area (and a perfect resting place for mugs).


Kova Lifestyle

When it comes to creating an inviting and cosy interior, it all comes down to the little things. This Muse Candle by Jonathan Andler from Kova Lifestyle is perfect for making your living room nice ‘n’ fragrant and when you’ve burned away the notes of pink pepper and sage balsam, it makes a chic little vase for winter blooms!



ECC Lighting 

Entertaining that special someone on a cold winter’s night? Create the perfect ambience for your living room with these beautiful pendant lights by Vessel from ECC Lighting. The unique glass tint mutes the light, without hiding the artistic form of the bulb!




Sleep easy with these soft stonewash pillowcase and quilt covers from Jardan. These colours are perfect for your winter bed spread, and you can be sure to wake up niiiiice and rested.


West Elm

Say BUH-BYE to icy toes on cold hard floors with a thick wool rug from West Elm! From it’s traditional Moroccan berber patterning, to its handcrafted wool from New Zealand, you’ll be better off barefoot.


St Barts

This little ceramic ring stool from St Barts will be the hero of your home’s cosy corner. Style it with bohemian accents of shells or candles to create your perfect island escape (in the middle of winter).
