From Manhattan, with luxe: how to add a hint of luxury into your home with the newly extended Manhattan range

Whether it’s the glamour of Madmen or the glitz of skyscrapers, New York is synonymous with luxury. And when it comes to luxury, there’s no range more luxe than the Lounge Lovers Manhattan range.


An ode to the time-honoured mid-century style, the Manhattan brings this classic look into the 21st century — with a twist. Available in walnut and black, this collection’s beauty is all in the detail, from the luxe brass accents and tapered legs to the velvet lining and its slimline profile.

So how do you bring this collection into your home in a chic, yet contemporary way? Discover our four top tips to add a dash of luxe to your space with the Manhattan range.

Get sold on black and gold

Name a more elegant duo…we’ll wait. Black and gold meld perfectly together in the home, bringing an air of vintage glamour that’s unmatched by other furniture combinations. The bold midnight hues of the Manhattan range exude sophistication, while metallic inclusions draw the eye and add an extra dash of drama.

The best part about this combo? It pairs perfectly with bright pops of colour, so don’t be afraid to add some greenery to your space or a gorgeous accent chair to boot.

Lowline style, high elegance: With its sleek shape, the Manhattan TV Unit is a throwback to classic mid-century style. Come for the brass accents, stay for the sturdy craftsmanship that’s designed to stand the test of time.

Play with texture

Luxe doesn’t mean drab! Bringing different textures into your home is the perfect way to let your personality shine and create a more cozy atmosphere where you (and guests) will feel right at home. Warm timber, rich velvet textiles and leather soften the Manhattan range whilst still allowing the design details to shine.

Beauty is on the inside: If you prefer a more subtle approach to textures, the Manhattan sideboard does the trick. Sleek on the outside and the inside, this storage unit features plush velvet lining to hold all of your belongings.

Slumber in style

Imagine the feeling of unwinding in a remote lodge, surrounded by nature. That’s the feeling that timber evokes in the bedroom — particularly when you pair two or more pieces together. 

Start with a wooden bed frame, then complement it with matching bedside tables and a chest of drawers. Finish the look off with earthy tones: think paprika linens or a mustard throw.

Fit for a King: The Manhattan King Bed Frame is made for sprawling in slumber. Constructed from poplar hardwood, this bed is not only stylish but sturdy. The perfect foundation for a restful sleep.

Trust in the taper

Much like a well-tailored pair of pants, tapered legs are the epitome of restrained luxury. This slimline design elevates a piece of furniture, adding more height while also creating more space in your room. We adore the tapered look for tables and chairs, particularly when paired with softer elements, such as a spherical lamp or a lush velvet sofa.

Pro tip: add an extra hint of design interest by playing with angles — for example, the straight tapered legs of the Manhattan Desk paired with the angular features of the Oscar Fabric Dining Chair.
