DFS Launches Sofa In Dulux Colour of the Year 2022: Bright Skies™

Dulux DFS

DFS is excited to announce that its sleek and tech savvy Java range will now be available in Dulux Colour of the Year 2022 Bright Skies™, offering an easy way to incorporate the must-have colour of the season into your home.

Each year, a team of colour and design experts from Dulux identifies the colour trends set to feature in the year ahead and beyond, reflecting and defining the mood of the moment.

For 2022, Dulux has unveiled Bright Skies™ as the Colour of the Year for 2022. This serene shade of blue is designed to emulate the vast open sky and bring a feeling of calmness and optimism into your space.

To celebrate the launch, the popular Java range from DFS including a swivel chair, armchair, footstools, a two, three or four-seater sofa and a generous corner sofa will be available in Bright Skies™. Customers will also be able to choose from an additional five shades from the first of Dulux’s four complementary palettes for the year, the Greenhouse palette, including Calming Meadow, Tranquil Dawn™, River Valley™, Denim Drift™ and Fresh Foliage.

Inspired by nature and reminiscent of dewy meadows and meandering rivers, these shades are the ideal way to bring a touch of the great outdoors into your living room and perfectly complement the modern lines and button detailing of the sumptuous velvet Java collection from DFS. A choice of three scatter cushion designs will also be available - a plain velvet, a textured weave, and an original pattern design by DFS Senior Designer Lauren Harris.

The DFS Java range has been designed with relaxation - and recharging - in mind, and incorporates smart technology in the form of a wireless phone charging pad, which is discreetly built into the sofa arm to offer extra convenience.

Lauren Harris, Senior Designer at DFS, comments: “We are delighted to be collaborating with Dulux on their Colour of the Year for the fourth year running. At DFS, we’re seeing more and more customers look at ways to make their furniture adaptable and convenient, as well as comfortable and stylish, and we designed the Java range with this in mind - offering hidden technology that delivers functionality without compromising on the aesthetic.

"We’re pleased to add yet another reason for our customers to love the Java range with the addition of the Dulux Colour of the Year 2022 colour and complementary shades to the collection. With these new colours, customers will have the option to create a whole Colour of the Year look with a sofa, swivel chair, footstools and cushions, or simply add to an existing look with a couple of key pieces in their favourite shades.

"We’re always excited to work with Dulux to offer an easy way for customers to bring the trend colour for the year into their homes through their furniture and look forward to seeing how customers style the DFS Java range in Bright Skies and the Greenhouse palette in their own living rooms.

Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director at Dulux says: “Whether on your walls or on the sofa, Dulux Colour of the Year 2022 Bright Skies™ will soon be transforming the living rooms of the UK by adding a much needed breath of fresh air. Joyful, uplifting and optimistic, this dreamy summer sky blue is the antidote to being stuck inside. It reconnects us with the sky and makes even the smallest rooms appear airy and spacious. There are also four beautiful collections of colours that make the most of Bright Skies™ and it’s the Greenhouse palette of gentle nature inspired hues which come to life in every element of the DFS Java collection. From beautiful sofa and footstools to a stylish swivel chair, full immersion in your favourite colour scheme has never been easier or more comfortable.”
