New you. New dorm. New rug.

A rug can be the perfect way to flaunt your personal style at college. It’s also a great way to add colour, texture and cosiness to your room – and can even help to muffle noise! Choose that perfectly complement the new you.

A desk that deserves an ovation

Sit, stand, stretch, repeat. Keep active while you study with a desk that gives you the option to easily switch from sitting to standing throughout the day – or night.

Furniture that multi-tasks as well as you do

If your student apartment is verging on the small side, then you need your furniture to be flexible. Be clever with a sofa that easily converts into a bed, without compromising on your style. Pro tip: underbed storage boxes are perfect for hiding blankets, pillows and throws when they’re not needed.

A dorm that reflects the new you

After long study sessions, a cosy bed is essential for reading or relaxing. Up the cosiness quotient with a throw or three. And don’t forget to pile on lots of cushions.
