We are so excited to have our James Treble for Rugspace collection stocked at Silla Furniture! Located at 79 Bridge Rd, Richmond VIC, the Silla showroom is the perfect space for our products to compliment their gorgeous, Scandi-inspired furniture range.
We dropped into Silla Furniture recently with designer James Treble himself to style up a storm! In true James Treble style, the interior designer extraordinaire was quickly put to the test. Our Rugspace collaborator magically whipped up these gorgeous, colourful looks within minutes! The result? Three instant style updates to perfectly compliment existing furniture vignettes in the Silla showroom.
After the finishing touches were complete, we sat down with James and asked him to share his top tips for an instant home update.
UI: What do you always tell your clients to do when selecting pieces that will stand the test of time, especially when there are new trends changing all the time?
JT: I always suggest buying furniture in moderate colour choices as it gives you the opportunity to refresh the room’s feel often, without spending an arm and a leg. Refreshing a room is in fact easy, and it starts by choosing new affordable and smaller items like cushions, throws and ottomans. Choose what to add based on texture and colours and match or contrast these to the more expensive items you already have: the artwork, for example, or the sofa.

UI: What is one top tip for someone looking for an instant style update to their home, without breaking the bank?
JT: Floors and wall colours cannot be changed as easily as cushions and rugs… do that, instead. Invent a room’s new personality by adding a rug with an interesting pattern or texture. Match it to the existing furniture and connect the lot with bold cushions and other interesting objects.
UI: How do you stay inspired and up to date with interior design trends?
JT: If you are struggling for ideas, get inspired by visiting furniture stores or flick through design magazines. The new personality of your old room is just a cushion-throw away. Reviving any room that’s feeling tired is fun, and doesn’t have to be expensive.
A curated selection of the James Treble for Rugspace collection of rugs, ottomans, cushions and throws is now available at Silla Furniture.
