Astrakhan collection From Designers Guild

The Astrakhan collection from Designers Guild draws on the history of exotic pattern found within the traditional costumes and sumptuous textiles of the Silk Road - yet introduces a new contemporary interpretation with a play on scale and contrast of colour and texture. The colour palette heralds a return to a richer palette of emerald green, jade, cobalt, amethyst and magenta as well as touches of gold and metallic and a graphic use of black and white. Pattern is layered with damask and against shaded grounds and the use of scale creates trompe l’oeil effects. Texture is key from luxurious velvets, crisp taffetas and prints on stout cotton, wide-width sheer linen and sumptuous silk as well as decorative and embossed wallpapers.

Simply luxurious...
