Cool Urban Styling for your pad

It’s time to step up the style notch and inject your pad with an Urban Cool feel!

Living in the big city can often mean compromising on space for a great location – so we decided to pull together this contemporary Urban Cool look to help you create a light, airy, spacious feel to your pad. We’ve combined colour pop pieces and clever storage to this style to keep your pad neat and tidy while giving the illusion of more space.

Create this Urban Cool style with some retro storage lockers to give an industrial chic look, they are perfect for storing bathroom essentials like towels and beauty/grooming products .

You can also use the retro storage lockers in place of a bedside table, perfect for keeping all your magazines in and adds a cosmopolitan vibe.


Retro chairs are minimalistic and modern, they don’t take up much space and add a great pop of colour to whichever room you choose to use them in, the chair above will be available to buy on Very on the 19th March…so keep your eyes peeled!
