    Furniture favourite Loaf has launched a beautiful new vintage-inspired print – just in time for spring! The aptly named Vintage Rose is the latest addition to its fabric collection, and is the brand’s very first patterned design. The delicate, large-scale floral motif was designed alongside Designers Guild, and has a subtle, time-worn feel for old-school country glamour. Choose from Pink, Dusty Blue or Grey colourways, all set against a natural linen background.
