Colour of the Month 2020: Red

Colour of the Month 2020: Red

It might feel a bit cliched focusing on red with Valentine’s Day in February. But we know the love and passion our customers have for their work, and the emotions great cars evoke for automotive enthusiasts, so we make no apologies. Red leather is both traditional and modern, contemporary and iconic – what could be…

Colour of the Month 2019: White

Colour of the Month 2019: White

Sorry, but we just couldn’t resist the temptation to choose white this month – after all, doesn’t everybody dream of a White Christmas? We have a surprisingly large selection of leather and vinyl in white. It might not spring to mind as an obvious first choice for upholstery, but it can look incredibly dramatic… Car…

This month we are featuring fashionable grey as our colour focus. On the face of it, grey can be seen as quite a depressing colour, but we beg to differ… Car inspiration was definitely not a problem – beautiful bodywork, and some gorgeous grey upholstery… Our inspiration this month comes from moody grey landscapes, heart…

September’s colour of the month is blue – a great choice since we are still enjoying some lovely blue skies and a burst of balmy weather.

Colour of the Month 2019: Yellow

Colour of the Month 2019: Yellow

Our colour of the month this time is lovely, sunny yellow. Not a traditional choice, by any stretch of the imagination, but an interesting alternative if you are looking to make a statement. When looking for yellow inspiration in cars, there were lots of supercars to choose from, but we cast our net a little…

Colour of the Month: Green

Colour of the Month: Green

This month our colour focus is green. An interesting choice, as it can be seen as very traditional – think British Racing Green and House of Commons, or vibrant and modern – think Lamborghini. So, green makes an excellent option for authentic car restoration, but also for a modern total refit. Inspiration is plentiful for…

Colour of the Month: Neutrals

Colour of the Month: Neutrals

We know – neutral isn’t really a colour! But we have so many gorgeous neutrals – colours from pale cream, to biscuit, mushroom and soft caramel (mmm, yummy!), that we felt they deserved their very own focus. Neutral tones are super versatile – they go with anything and are a top choice for designers. They…

Colour of the Month: Brown

Colour of the Month: Brown

Gorgeous brown is a great colour choice for leather. It really seems to bring out the natural beauty and grain of leather, and there is a huge choice. A very versatile colour option – from traditional projects with gentleman’s club style firm and dark brown leather, to buttery soft browns for occasional use – there…

Colour of the Month 2019: Red

Colour of the Month 2019: Red

Yes, we know it’s clich├ęd and it was our feature colour last February, but we just had to focus on passionate red as our first colour of the month for 2019… Red leather is actually quite a traditional choice, and is frequently requested when trimmers are doing restoration projects. And you don’t get much more…

Colour of the Month: Black

Colour of the Month: Black

So, as this month has become synonymous with Black Friday, how we could possibly not choose black as our colour of the month? Perhaps unsurprisingly, black is our most popular colour – for leather, vinyl, Alcantara and Dinamica. It’s super practical, and is available in nearly all of our ranges. And, of course, as a…

Colour of the Month: Orange

Colour of the Month: Orange

As we reach the middle of Autumn how we could choose any other colour, but fiery orange to feature this month? Orange is, of course, a very warm and vibrant colour. It certainly makes a statement. But it is also a wonderful accent colour and harmonises beautifully with black, grey, dark blue and brown. Hints…
