Sofa.com is delighted to announce the launch of its sixth Design Lab collaboration with Dutch designer Mariska Meijers. Established to support creative talent, Design Lab enables sofa.com to work with some of the best up-and-coming and new designers, with previous partners including St. Jude’s, Thornback & Peel, Cameron Short, Occipinti and Charlotte Beevor. This year’s partnership has international presence with Mariska’s exclusive prints available in both the UK and Netherlands, where sofa.com also retail and have a showroom.
Renowned for her use of vibrant colours and bold patterns, Amsterdam based artist and designer Mariska has been creating homeware products since 2010. The new and exclusive fabric collection, created for sofa.com’s Design Lab are based on a vivid hand-painted ikat design. Available in three colourways - Cobalt, Magenta, and Teal - Electric Ikat will launch this September at Maison Objet in Parisand Decorex in London. Available for upholstery on all sofas, beds and chairs in sofa.com’s range, including their blanket boxes and cushions, the fabric provides a sophisticated, contemporary design option for the home.
Mariska comments, “It’s been great working with sofa.com because they are a warm, accessible brand and the fabrics really come to life on their sofas and armchairs. The inspiration for the Electric Ikat collection stems from my travels in Asia. I’ve always loved woven ikats and have created my own interpretation by hand painting the patterns in a range of compelling colours.”
