Elegance: The English Gardens collection is inspired by the richness of colors and textures experienced in English botanical gardens, which captivated the designer as a child. Nature teaches us the importance of small details, and this point is highlighted by the elaborate finishes in this collection and the introduction of a new type of handmade knotted fringe.  This collection has the largest number of accessories, comprising of baskets, a puff and garlands in pink, mauve and white with renewed and elegant floral designs

Joy: As a loyal lobster lover and all things maritime, Lorena Canals launches a fun, marine style collection: the Lobster collection.  Having grown up by the sea, Lorena Canals has turned her childhood memories into fun carpets and wall hangings, with matching baskets and door hangers, in intense red and natural tones with textures that seem sprinkled by the wind and sea water and softened by the white sand.

Lorena Canals’ award-winning designs have garnered international attention for being modern & stylish, yet practical & safe for children.  

Her fair-trade products are handmade by expert craftsman in India, who use raw materials of the best quality. Their rigorous artisanal process produces environmentally friendly, machine washable rugs and decorative accessories made from natural cotton.  All designs are hand stitched and dyed with natural, non-toxic dyes, to ensure durability after washing. 

C.P. Hart x 2LG Studio Exclusive Collaboration

The London-based Interior Design company, 2LG Studio, were chosen to interpret C.P. Hart’s 2019 bathroom trends with an exclusive installation. The creative duo, Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead, created a powerful and palpable room-set in red and pink that combines new finishes and bold products.

Working with the luxury bathroom retailer’s in-house team for several months, they produced a bespoke room-set for C.P. Hart’s flagship Waterloo showroom - revealed at C.P. Hart’s 2019 product launch in November.

2LG Studio worked with the in-house team to pick cutting-edge products to produce the colourful bathroom design. The BetteLux Oval bath was custom made in pink for the first time to complete the dual-coloured scheme with the Rho basin from Kast in a matching hue. Fantini provides a dose of fun with its I Balocchi pop-art style brassware and freestanding shower in a custom all-red finish.

“Jordan and Russell have such a signature style and always embrace colour with a flair for mixing bright and muted tones, which makes this collaboration work so well. At C.P. Hart we have been championing the rising trend of colour in the bathroom for some time now, so it’s been great to work with designers who are not afraid of using a varied pallete and have ultimately created something bold for us.” Rachel Martin, Merchandising Director

Bisazza’s Opus Romano Matt tiles in both pink and red pull this forward look together. “Red and pink is an iconic colour combo. It is a combo that has been in our minds for a long time and this was the perfect opportunity to experiment with it. Once we knew that Bisazza were on board too, we knew that their extensive range of colours in matt and gloss would give us the perfect opportunity to blend colours and create a jewellery box of a bathroom.” 2LG Studio.

With the help of Beck interiors, the set was designed with cut out moon shapes to encourage the viewer to move around the room and see it from new and unusual angles.

Speaking of the inspiration for the project, the studio cited the American fashion title Paper Magazine as a source of inspiration. “It had the most incredible red and pink cover the month we sat down to create the concepts. We also have a passion for Italian design and for movies. We couldn't be more excited about it and it has been a big influence on the design of the installation.” 2LG Studio.

The collaboration is part of C.P. Hart’s dedicated activity to bring consumers the latest in product and interior design. The bathroom specialist has always been at the forefront of bathroom design, showcasing brands from around the world, regularly for the first time in the UK.

The room-set will be on display in the C.P. Hart Waterloo showroom throughout 2019. C.P. Hart will also be showcasing the latest collections in its gallery space, which includes new designs from Bisazza, Bette, Scavolini and more. C.P. Hart also issued its Trend Report for 2019, which is now available to press.

C.P. Hart are also proud to welcome Graham & Brown to the showroom as two wallpapers from its collaboration with 2LG has been used within the showroom space, Felt Tip Pink and Buckley Pink.

Living Coral is an uplifting shade that celebrates connected life, and is influenced by the vital role of coral in the marine ecosystem. The new Colour of the Year takes a fond look at nature's beauty and highlights the importance of preserving it, so it's good to know that MuralsWallpaper paper is sustainably sourced and uses only eco-friendly, water-based inks.

Wall Murals Designed to Celebrate 100 Years of Bauhaus

2019 marks the centenary of the Bauhaus art school, established in 1919. To celebrate, MuralsWallpaper have designed a signature new collection that references classic Bauhaus shapes and colours, scaled up as murals in a modern interpretation of the movement.

Dessau

Dessau

These statement surface designs by MuralsWallpaper incorporate flat concrete textures inspired by Bauhaus architecture, and transform Bauhaus' iconic primary colour palette to tones that make them more accessible and ideal for modern home decoration.

The overlaying of colours and shapes that make up the murals are inspired by the colour theory work of Bauhaus' Josef Albers and by László Moholy-Nagy, a professor at the art school who explored perspective in his paintings.

Neues Sehen

Neues Sehen

Featuring layered architectural shapes and shifting directions, the murals use minimal lines to present a contrast of sharp angles and soft, curved shapes. The simplicity of the geometric forms and colours come together to make a bold impact.

Kreis

Kreis

These wall mural designs capture the dynamic, asymmetric forms of original Bauhaus exhibition posters, on a scale that is simply not possible using traditional on-the-roll wallpaper. 

From dedicated design enthusiasts to all who unknowingly experience the great influence of Bauhaus in the designs they see everyday, everyone can celebrate Bauhaus in a big way at home with these six murals - Neues Sehen (new vision),  Perspektive  (perspective),  Kreis (circle),  Bilden (form), Dreieck  (triangle) and Dessau (German city home to one of the three Bauhaus schools).

Perspektive

The vision of Bauhaus paved the way for graphic design and the modern age. 100 years on, its incredible influence can be seen all around and continues to be explored in interior design.

Taylor Howes & Davidson Launch New Dining Table Collaboration

Taylor Howes and Davidson, two bastions of the artisan and design world in the UK, have revealed a stunning new dining table collaboration at FOCUS 2018. The table, named “The Howes Dining Table”, will be launched at a special event during the week and is the result of a 6-month collaborative process. This is the Davidson studio's first collaboration and a celebration of the pair’s 25-year friendship.

The Circualr Howes Table Variation.jpg

It took six craftsman and designers from the respective studios some three months to develop the prototype, which is hand carved and has a striking figured Angere to the top.  The table, which in homage to the philosophy of both firms is more akin to an art piece than something so functional as a table, boasts an eye-catching radial pattern on its surface and is a demonstration of the very best in British craftsmanship. 

The Howes Table Variation.jpg

The concept of the table was born out of the timeless nature of Davidson's existing pieces and the inherent nature of dining tables traversing decades, being passed on from generation to generation. Taylor Howes explored the nature of passing time and how this might be represented in the design, focusing their thoughts on a single day - from dawn to dusk.  This image inspired the River bed relief, which is reflective of the image of sun hitting rippled water at sunrise and the soft evening tone as it sets at night.   Working with Davidson it was decided that the shape of the table should be oval, as it continued the theme, with the continual loop, a never-ending passage of time. This was then followed through in the base, where the team created two semi-circular elements. 

The Howes Table_Taylor Howes & Davidson Collaboration (2).JPG

The collaboration forms part of a wider initiative by the Taylor Howes studio and is part of its #52WeeksofTH campaign. A year-long celebration of the studio's 25th Birthday, which has seen something new happen, either announcement, collaboration, Q&A or event throughout the year.  The collaboration with Davidson is one of the larger initiatives to happen in Taylor Howes' 25th year and its sits alongside the studio's own collection launch, which is to be revealed November 1st 2018 and the group's first Business of Design and Luxury summit, which is to take place on November 21st in the The Gladstone Library, One Whitehall Place, with guest speakers from the world of design and luxury internationally. 

Karen Howes, CEO & Founder of Taylor Howes, commented: “We are thrilled to be launching our collaboration during FOCUS. I have worked with Davidson for 25 years so it was fitting to work with them to create something truly unique and special for our 25th anniversary. Six months in the making, “The Howes Dining Table” is a statement piece and a signature of our design philosophy: elegant lines, exceptional craftsmanship and material imagination. We're known in the studio for our finishes and detailing and “The Howes Dining Table” is no exception to this. Working with Davidson has been a great journey; we've loved every part of it, from the early consultations to the unveiling of the finished piece. The table is a true celebration and exemplar of British craftsmanship, conceived in our studio by our in-house designers, the skilled team at Davidson then brought it to life, it is part of our commitment to preserve and uphold British craftsmanship”.

“Our brand new tile design–created especially for Anthropologie by us– celebrates the best of both brands. Using the gold hue that Anthropologie is known for and combining it with our iconic octagonal design makes for a striking pattern–perfect for creating a stunning visual statement within the home.”

Smeg Teams Up With Disney For Limited Edition,

Following on from previous collaborations with Dolce&Gabbana, Mini and Veuve Cliquot, Smeg has partnered with Disney for its latest collaboration. To celebrate the special nature of the partnership, there will only be a total of 90 fridges made for the limited edition collection.

Smeg’s iconic FAB28 fridge is brought to life by an original drawing featuring Disney’s most iconic character, Mickey Mouse, who is also celebrating his milestone 90th  anniversary this year.

Both brands are synonymous with bringing the family together. For Smeg, at the heart of the company lies a focus on food, family and entertaining. Meanwhile for Disney, at its core lies the ability to bring people of all ages together, united in a sense of fun, laughter, optimism and hope.

Featuring a ‘True Original’ bespoke sketch of Mickey, each of the limited edition 90 FAB28RDMM3 fridges include an endearing image of Mickey playfully reaching for the fridge’s handle. 90 fridges will be produced, one for each year since Mickey’s debut back in 1928 making this a true collector’s item. Each fridge is decorated with a limited edition silver plaque signifying it’s unique number.

Aesthetically speaking, the FAB28 is Smeg’s most widely recognised design. Immediately identifiable due to its soft curves and 50s-inspired design, it paved the way to a refrigerator revolution in the late 1990s. Since then, it has become a global phenomenon. The interior benefits from adjustable glass shelves, chrome shelving supports, metal wine racks, LED strip lights, an ice compartment and a Life Plus drawer, which keeps fruit and veg fresher for longer. Each FAB28 provides a total gross capacity of 281L and offers an A+++ energy rating. In addition, Smeg recently upgraded all of its FAB fridges to include a metal back.

Born from an exciting collaboration between two creative and iconic brands, the FAB28RDMM3 is available exclusively from Smeg’s flagship store at 14 Regent Street St James’s. You may even find a hidden Mickey or two during your in-store visit.

The Favara sofa comes in a versatile range of sizes including grand, large and medium as well as a snuggler, chair and footstool, all upholstered in the fresco fabric collection.

“Perfect for an open plan scheme, this range looks just as good from the back as it does from the front. The unique leg detailing gives the design a stand out profile that will add interest to any home.

Consider incorporating a palette of moody hues to create warmth in your living space this season. Cooler tones of grey can still add warmth to your decor, especially when paired with softer shades of dusty pink and Mulberry.” Rachel Galbraith, Creative Director
