    Design is at the heart of everything we do and we’re proud to be original.

    What trends are you seeing for summer 2017?

    Colour has the power to change an interior ambience, so getting it right is vital in commercial spaces. Our in-house studios are at the forefront of colour and design development, whether its energetic brights, sophisticated neutrals or romantic blushes, we place huge emphasis on creating on-trend balanced collections for our contract clients. Having our own manufacturing facilities also allows us to develop bespoke colourations when needed.

    This summer we have seen four major colour trends alongside Pantone’s Greenery; Zen, Nomad and Bliss.

    Zen is a confident, composed and enriched colour palette of sophisticated neutrals in matt and metallic effects.

    Moody metropolitan tones in subtle textures and combinations of matt and shine capture the essence of our Anthology brand, a new generation of contract specification fabrics and wallcoverings that are created by state-of-the art technology to achieve ground-breaking, sophisticated finishes that interior designers and hotel groups worldwide can easily access.

    Nomad is an exploration of our world, celebrating its bright hues and natural shades.

    The word Harlequin means ‘varied in colour or decoration’, which sums the in-house studio’s eclectic design ethos perfectly. Driven by their love of colour, collections are inspired from around the world. The intensity of colour found in nature is evident in Fauvisimo’s powerful colour palette which ranges from cobalt blues and deep magentas to moody greys, on trend mustards, highlights of muted greens, blush pinks and honey shades.

    Bliss joyful, charming and endearing, these fun-loving sherbets and soft pastels are designed to delight.

    Sanderson’s classic palette of pinks, fresh greens, teals and lilacs lie at the heart of Waterperry, an impressionistic style of effortless floral designs. The coral colour palette mingles with silvers and greys.

    Lilacs, indigos, creams and mints sit well in this blissful collection. Designed with easy elegance to provide a calming and serene interior backdrop.

    Greenery nature’s neutral, Pantone’s Greenery is a versatile “trans-seasonal” shade that lends itself to many colour combinations.

    Green comes in many forms and produces varying effects, pure greens such as Pantone’s ‘Greenery’ inherently possesses a tranquil quality. This restorative, trans-seasonal colour introduces a sense of refreshment to the room, and the minds within it. In contrast organic malachite greens can bring a pop of colour and energy whilst still reflecting a natural essence.
