In this instalment of H&G It Yourself we take show you a first look at the latest fabric, wallpaper and rug collections.
The latest from lauded house harlequin revisits the free-flowing kineticism and abstract, graphic nature of traditional calligraphy in the ‘Enigmatic’ range. Alive with movement, the large-scale brush strokes of ‘Enigmatic’ twist and turn on a ground of embossed vinyl, making it both timeless yet undeniably contemporary. The design is available in two colourways: the monochrome Japanese Ink/Origami (pictured) and nectar/awakening, an ultraluxe gold finish.
Home Fabrics Arte
Each design in Arte’s Décors & Panoramiques collection is as transporting as the next, immersing you in a fantastical landscape – maybe a scene from ancient mythology, a field of flamingos or even the thick greenery of the amazon. Pictured above, ‘Terra Tropicana’ in golden sunset shows a fiery Brazilian dance, full of rhythm and connection with nature. And it is not only the patterns and designs that appeal to the imagination, but the materiality and craftsmanship invite a new level of tactile surprise, featuring velvety soft silks, bouclé fabrics and linen effects.
