Paint Expert, Annie Sloan, will be adding to its much-anticipated fabric collection with a new line of linens. Tumbled for softness, the fabrics are made from a heavy cotton mix for texture and durability with the weft and warp woven together to create a multi-dimensional effect. The new collection will be available in four shades: Antoinette, a soft pink, Provence, a turquoise blue-green, Paloma, a warm taupe, and Graphite, a charcoal grey, each woven with Old White.
Blackpop will launch its new ‘Collector’s Collection’ exclusively at the show. The range will include five new wallpapers, three fabrics and two rugs created in collaboration with the Sir John Soane’s Museum. A treasure trove of art, antiques and wonders, the museum’s paintings, objet d’art and original architects’ drawings provided the inspiration for the opulent and dramatic collection.
Also turning to art for inspiration is Cocoon Home. The brand, which launched at Decorex last year, has collaborated with six emerging British talents to create a new collection of fabrics. The collection translates the distinct style and personality of each of the collaborators into cotton-linen mix or cotton satin fabrics. Partnering artists come from specialisms that include street art, comic book illustration, wood and lino cutting and surface pattern design.
Paint company, Little Greene, will debut its latest collection, developed in collaboration with the National Trust. An unrivalled selection of 31 beautiful greens, the range is a result of extensive research undertaken in National Trust houses and gardens throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The inspiration for the green shades come from sources as diverse as Beatrix Potter’s Cumbrian Farmhouse, George Bernard Shaw’s revolving writing hut and the mythical birds featured on the wallpaper hung by Chippendale at Nostell Priory.
Finally, furniture brand, Decca London, will unveil the London Collection, designed by luxury lighting brand, Bert Frank. The 15-piece collection uses luxurious materials, including two signature wood finishes, Camden Rosewood and Peckham Dark Ash. Both are complemented by accents in Bristol brass and surfaces in Carrara, Nero Marquina and India Green marble. Additionally, the brand has also collaborated with Textile Designer Margo Selby to create a bespoke fabric for the collection.
