Bold complementary colours


We attach emotional qualities to colours. We talk about cold and warm colours, intimate and distant colours, and cheerful and gloomy colours. With Montana’s contrasting colour palette, you can bring a wide range of emotions to your home, playing with contrasts in complementary colours. For example, flamboyant red shades like ”zen red” and ”china red” are intensified through interplay with subdued colour shades like light ”green tea” and delicate ”lemon drop”.

Use strong colours to give your surroundings an edge. It takes courage to use obvious contrasts in the home, using colours as an eye-catching element of your interior design – both indoors and outdoors.


Our lacquered MP work desks set the tone and style. Combined with Montana’s classic unit solutions, you can fully enter an exotic universe of colours and create rooms which reflect your style and personality.

The renowned Montana 1112 unit with four compartments (H: 69.6 cm, W: 69.6 cm, D: 20 cm) starts from a recommended retail price of is £245 inclusive of VAT.

Do Me A Favour


The tradition of distributing wedding favours is a very old one. It is believed that the first wedding favours, common amongst European aristocrats, were known as bonbonnieres – small trinket boxes made of porcelain or crystal. The contents of these precious boxes were generally sugar cubes or delicate confections.

Today wedding favours are most often chocolate or other confectionary and Rococo Chocolates have some real gems for you to give to your guests as a small token to say “thank you” for being there to celebrate your special day. They are beautifully presented and they look as great as part of a table decoration as they taste when you unwrap them.

As well as the usual wedding favours you can find on the website and in the shops, is also possible to order bespoke ones.

Prices start from £1.50 for a ribboned mini bee bar and two truffles or creams in a Rococo ballotin box retail at £3.50

Bright and Beautiful


Don’t be afraid of colours. They can liven up a room whether you just use them as splashes or do the whole room in bright colours. Louis Poulsen has some great pendants and they come in some glorious colours.

Hang a bunch of different colours together and you get a vibrant feel.

Or use one strong colour in an otherwise neutral room to create effect.
