Awhile ago, I was invited by DFS to the launch of their new Capsule Collection and afterwards their team reached out to see if I might like to try some of the line at home
Would you just look at that dreamboat (not me, the furniture – oh you!) but seriously, aren’t they gorgeous?!
It was my birthday recently and to mark the occasion, we did what sensible people do – and carried furniture out of the apartment and into a great big open space
Birthday celebrations take many different forms, this year included a guard dog called Henry (the grumpiest of all guard dogs) and drinking pink bubbles whilst donning a tiara – it was pretty great!
The pieces took quite awhile to arrive, but they were made to order, so it was to be expected. I got to choose the style and colours myself – I went with the calm wing armchair and the play hexagon footstool (both in brushed plain, pink) – and I even got to pick the type of feet I wanted for them too
They may list it as copper…but you and I both know it’s Rose Gold!
In my book, if you’re going to really celebrate your birthday – along with a pretty frock and the aforementioned tiara – you should always be in a killer pair of shoes, this year my heel of choice was the stellar barbie pink pair I got on sale in New York which I’ve had on repeat all summer (also seen here and here)
Side note – contrary to these photos, I did actually share the bubbles….eventually!
This beautiful champagne flute was part of a pair gifted to us by family when we got married, they’re made by Galway Crystal and they’re now on sale here
When it came time to take the “beauty shots”, this is the closest I got because SOMEONE was done being professional
(to be fair – it’s a worthy photobomb)
Final words on the DFS capsule collection: I quite honestly have nothing but good things to say about the line and my experience dealing with DFS for that matter. Their live chat customer service function is actually amazing, don’t bother picking up the phone to them because the people working the live chat service are fantastic and so quick, that they’ll have your issue sorted before you’ve even made it through to a person on the phone!
My beaut of a chair is super comfy, great for curling up in, with a good book, some cosy socks and a hot cuppa tea, or stretching out with thanks to the footstool
Above all, it fits beautifully in our new apartment, it doesn’t take over the whole space and if anything, it’s a joyful contribution, adding a welcome pop of colour to our otherwise creamy decor
If you’re in the market for some apartment friendly furniture, DFS is your one stop shop.
