Joining sofa.com’s Design Lab portfolio in 2018 is Tamasyn Gambell. A well established textile designer whose plaudits include Observer Magazine’s ‘Designs Next Big Five’ and Elle Decoration’s ‘Approved Great British Design’, Tamasyn prides herself on not only creating luxurious, timeless products but also looks to work in the most environmentally responsible way possible.
These new printed fabrics are a nod to mid-century styling and, as such, add an exciting, timeless appeal to interiors using hand-drawn details and block shapes that coordinate perfectly with each other. Use these designs to create statement sofas or accent chairs, or add touches of pattern on scatter cushions to break up areas of block colour and add variety to your interior scheme.
Tamasyn says of the new collection:
"I am really excited to be working with sofa.com. The idea that a customer chooses the piece of furniture they want and the fabric to upholster it in really works in line with what I do, as each piece will be unique to the customer.
“Both prints – Textured Stripe and Abstract Square - feature bold geometric shapes but have hand-drawn elements that soften them. When developing the fabrics, we played with the scale of pattern and developed a whole new colour palette for the project in line with sofa.com’s 2018 range.
“It’s important to me to show my own hand as the designer - so there are quirky hand-drawn grids and lines, with both prints being slightly ‘off register’ to give them a hand screen printed appeal.
“All of my designs are intended to be timeless. I try to avoid trends and create patterns that won't date and can be passed down through families, giving the pieces longevity and fostering a sense of emotional connection.”
Design Lab is an initiative that supports creative talent, bringing sofa.com together with British designers to produce exclusive collections. Following it’s huge success over recent years, these new upholstery fabrics and home accessories will now become part of sofa.com’s continuity range.
