We round-up our design picks of the moment
Above Sometimes you just need to get a feel of something before you take the plunge and buy it. Lulu & Nat are giving you the chance to do just that, by opening a pop-up shop on the Golborne Road in West London during April. The British bedding brand will be showcasing their core homeware collections, with options for children available as well, including a curated collection of pieces for the home, from hand block printed oilcloths and fabrics, to beautiful cushions and exclusive items which are to be sourced especially for the occasion.
Ways with walls
Below Why not make a difference when you buy your wallpaper? In celebration of International Women's Day (8th March), the in-house design team at Murals Wallpaper has designed a wallpaper product that celebrates the first female photographer, Anna Atkins, the British botanist who used cyanotypes of plants and algae in botanical studies to pave the way for the use of photography in scientific publishing. Now, her stunning photographic images are being used in this unique design, reflecting the stunning blue tones that emerge from the cyanotype process. The design team sourced the original photographs and were able to bring them to life through digital design techniques. 20 per cent of the sales from products during 2017 are to be donated to their chosen women's charity, the Fawcett Society, as part of their mission to promote gender equality and women's rights at work, home and public life.
Behind the company
Below Have you ever wanted to see more of the human side behind the brand you're buying from? Chiselwood has commissioned a number of vlogs which will be released throughout the year which will help visitors to their website and potential clients see the human side of the company and find out more about the faces behind the brand. The vlogger used is the son of the founders, George Holliday.
Embrace your inner adventurer
Below Do you feel like your home is in need of some exotic treasures? The Merchant Adventurer, Liberty's London Home new collection, is launching exclusively instore and online in April 2017. The home range has been designed by James Millar, and will incorporate an eclectic array of luxurious soft furnishings that are markedly different to the previous Liberty print homeware offerings. It will provide a modern interpretation of the store's unique history and spirit, and is inspired by Liberty's founder, Arthur Liberty. Prices range from £125 to £395.
Below Texture is set to be a big trend this year, which is why we’re loving the new Valais range of large-size genuine wood panels. They’re ideal for drawers and walls and also shelves, as shown here within contrasting matt lacquered fronts in Carbon Grey. An ultra slim 5mm thick Evo worktop complements this streamlined look. Leicht kitchens start from £15,000.
