There’s something comfortingly traditional and yet somehow contemporary at the same time, about Buxton Charcoal. The traditional aspect comes from the fact that the fabric has a real wool-look, but it’s actually crafted from manmade fibres so more practical for everyday use. As for the contemporary, that lies in the colour – an ever-popular mid grey, with tiny flecks of white alongside darker grey that adds depth to the block colour. And that tussle of old against new also comes into play with styling because you’re going to be able to satisfy both angles. Heavy creams, whites and tweedy colours – browns, greens – are going to play to that traditional look, or be modern and bold, pairing it with burnished ambers, cobalt blues or lime greens.
