Near Neutrals

Near Neutrals

While grey is an important pure neutral tone for interiors, we have a range of beige and taupe shades within our playmat collection, known as Near Neutrals. These calming shades offer a subtle background, ideal for styling against focal, warm textures or bolder colours.

Near Neutrals are made by mixing a pure neutral (black, grey, white or brown) with a touch of a primary colour (blue, red or yellow.) Choosing whether you prefer a brown or grey tinted Near Neutral will help you choose the playmat for you.

The Swatch Service


Choose up to two swatches only to keep our service running sustainably.

See how your favourite Totter + Tumble design looks against your home furnishings, or if you fancy getting a feel for the quality of the sealed memory foam, our swatch service delivers a mini piece of Totter + Tumble through your letterbox.

Consider the size you want to buy before you purchase swatches, as we have a smaller collection of Round and Play Runner designs.

For our larger scale motifs, you may receive only a section of the design.

Once you have made your decision, please return your swatches back to us within 30 days, using the Freepost label in your envelope, so we can reuse them and you can be refunded.
