Lorna Haigh, Creative and Marketing Director comments, ‘this is the beginning of our exciting collaboration with the luxury fabric house Zoffany. For the first time, their inspirational design stories are translated into a different cloth, wall to wall carpet. This allows the interior designer to play with scale and texture using these design concepts in the luxury boutique and commercial markets
Boutique celebrates craft and colour. The designs are Dunand, Seizo, Clio, Serpentine and Crackle in a total of sixteen colourways, that take inspiration from Zoffany’s collections. ‘The Muse’ epitomises the decadent spirit of the 1920’s and combines modernist style with fine craftsmanship. The ‘Alchemy of Colour’ is a sumptuous palette of natural dyes, based on jewel-like shades from the Zoffany archive.
The designs are opulent in colour with patterns that capture elegance and prestige. Dunand is a jazzy geometric named after Jean Dunand an Art Deco artist, designer and master of lacquer. The design reproduces the positive negative silhouette of Brik. The colourways are Tiger’s Eye, Armadillo, Como and Empire.
Serpentine is an exuberant design that translates classic marble into the softness of carpet. The colourways are Celadon and Malachite.
Clio is a small-scale, geometric motif inspired by Roman mosaic flooring and named after one of the nine Greek Muses. The colourways are Mousseux, Bone Black, Prussian and Ash.
Crackle is a pattern that imitates the crackle of paint glazes or dried earth inspired by the the epic landscape of the Gobi and Sahara Desert. The colourways are Fossil and Old Gold.
Seizo is a fretwork geometric with a sophisticated, modernist style. The colourways Vermeer, Vine, Indigo and Zinc
