Luxurious, contemporary and timelessly stylish, the RV Astley collection epitomises elegant boutique hotel style...
The RV Astley range has a distinctive character and a contemporary ethos fused with period European styling, making it a great addition to the Houseology Luxe Collection. The eclectic mix and historical influence means that RV Astley works beautifully in boutique hotels as well as in private homes and in older properties as well as modern houses. The team behind the brand started out creating antique reproduction furniture and this heritage continues to permeate the overall aesthetic, bringing together a range of lighting, mirrors, accessories and upholstery that is modern yet timeless.
02.Classic console - RV Astley console tables
When designing living rooms or dining rooms, console tables are one of the best additions and the style of the hall table is key to the overall effect in a well-designed hallway. It creates the perfect surface to display table lamps or candles along with a curated collection of decorative ornaments that lets you inject your own personality into a scheme. The Ansley Console Tray Table with its mirrored finish and shelf is wonderful for displaying books or even for using as a chic bar area, while the Adare Half-Moon Console is a fabulously opulent piece – introduce it into a hallway or dressing room to create instant Hollywood glamour.
03.On reflection – RV Astley mirrors
The RV Astley mirror range is extensive and perfect from both a style and price perspective. With over 260 mirrors on the website, in an array of looks and prices, we’ve curated 40 Luxe RV Astley mirrors to bring you an extensive choice of boutique hotel style mirrors. Picking out a favourite is tricky as there is a huge variety of ornate frames and interesting shapes available, frames have the ability to transform a mirror from a simple, understated piece to a dramatic focal point and this range really offers that possibility. Why not get creative by combining a collection of different size and shaped mirrors on one wall for an innovative alternative to wall art? Or create your own mirror wall in any size with the Keel Champagne Silver Modular Mirror.
The RV Astley range is all about ultimate comfort as well as unrivalled elegance. There is a distinctive style and character across the dining chairs, sofas and armchairs that is defined by the shapes and the natural tones of the linen mix colour palette. The Gala High Bar Stool is one that stands out - a great statement stool with its generous shape and luxurious roll. The elegant but really comfortable shapes, tactile fabrics and luxurious details like piping and button detailing, are what define the upholstery collection, making you just want to sit back and relax whether you’re at the dinner table or unwinding on the sofa.

There is a lovely designer style about the lighting collection and a touch of Luxe glamour – this is epitomised in the nickel and glass Aston 9 Light Chandelier. The Serena Table Lamp is another covetable fitting, with its contemporary nickel base and elegant charcoal shade, it’s modern yet classic and it works beautifully paired at each side of a console table or as a living room accent.
Detail is everything in the AW16 Houseology Luxe look with finishing touches such as piping and button backs on upholstery, glass and nickel detailing in lighting and rich Art Deco influences all working together to create a luxurious style that’s a touch eclectic. Each RV Astley piece in the Houseology collection interprets our Luxe style perfectly and is beautifully finished with thoughtful designer details. The range reinterprets interior classics for contemporary living and brings affordable everyday luxury to your interiors - making it a perfect addition to the Houseology collection.
The neutral palette used across the RV Astley collection gives it an elegant and sophisticated character, neutrals are welcoming and versatile – they provide a great backdrop when you want to introduce bold accent elements and will work well with any style. Made up of beautiful soft greys, elegant taupes and creams with eye catching metallics and a shot of charcoal, the RV Astely palette is an inspiring, refined choice that provides a wonderful canvas for building out a low key neutral scheme or becomes a platform for injecting colour and contrast in a more daring design. Such versatility combined with timeless styling means that this collection works as beautifully in a London showhouse as it does in a boutique hotel.
