The new store will take position on the High Street in Weybridge town centre with ideas and products for living, dining, bed, bath, kitchen and more.

A whole-home concept that redefines interior design, furniture making and customer service, Neptune’s hand-crafted collections are built to last a lifetime. And with in-house interior designers on hand to advise customers within the Weybridge store, the Neptune look and style can be tailored to be truly unique to your home.

Whether you’re looking to update just one room or make over your whole home this autumn, Neptune’s new season collection will bring a touch of comfort to the coldest months of the year.

The autumn collection features beautifully crafted rustic wooden oak furniture, soft tactile velvets and rich linens creating a homely mood and inviting the best of autumn’s elements inside. Inspired by the rich shades of fallen leaves, a palette of deep burnished red, amber and rich cranberry compliment timeless home accessories in soft clays, caramels and cool charcoal grey to create naturally stylish rooms full of warmth and comfort.

Key pieces for the new season include the inviting Eva sofa, the Arundel dining table and bench in a classic modern country style, the Keats pendants made of spun steel with a sharp contemporary look softened by subtle curves and evocative framed prints celebrating the landscapes of the Great British countryside.

Always make sure there’s room for one more…

It’s easy to make kitchen table meals more special; comfy chairs that encourage chatter, lovely table linen, tactile white tableware, seasonal flowers and soft lighting. Just add candles for some night-time magic.

Kitchens are where we cook and create, welcome friends and gather families

Bring your kitchen to life with some colour and texture. We love the contrast of sophisticated Charcoal with simple Salt, of tactile wood with polished brass.

The trend in recent years has been for multi-tasking spaces – living rooms that act as dining rooms, kitchens that include seating areas. While we love the idea of open-plan living, we can’t help but feel nostalgic about traditional domestic spaces – larders, laundry rooms and cloakrooms, which all suggest a sense of space and order and help transform everyday chores and rituals into something altogether more enjoyable and rewarding.

Never underestimate the simple pleasure of a beautifully made bed

This is the time of year to start thinking about the arrival of family and friends. It’s easy to make a guest bedroom feel like home; a really warm autumn welcome is a luxurious throw folded invitingly at the end of their bed. Think of throws and cushions in the same way as you would plan an outfit – start with the softer, finer fabrics and then add seasonal layers to make everything feel warm and cosy.

Make your bathroom a haven from the outside world

Treat your bathroom like any other room with furniture that makes it feel homely – a stool or chair are perfect for towels, clothes and even candles. Add a few carefully chosen accessories – family pictures, a lovely mirror and pretty baskets and it becomes a room to revive and relax.

Life feels so much easier when everything is organized and put away

Working at home can be rife with distractions so a designated space is key. Kit it out with beautiful purpose-designed furniture that is perfectly in tune with the rest of your home.


Neptune Weybridge opens on 1st October.
