Ellis 1891 Renoir in Aubergine

Aubergine is the latest statement colour to grace Ellis Furniture’s painted Renoir pieces. Use its solid shade to add definition to the bathroom and its fine grain to inspire a textured scheme, as Ellis has done above with wooden panelling and honeycomb tiling. Or, if you fear the hue makes too much impact, there are  21 others to consider. From £1000. www.ellisfurniture.co.uk
