NEW COLLECTION… VINTAGE RUGS
JANUARY 26TH 2016

Felt’s latest shipment includes several vintage rugs in rich red, green and orange hues. These have all seen active service on the walls and floors of nomadic yurts, though they remain in excellent condition. These rugs represent the opportunity to own a unique piece of history, bringing real character to a home. 

Every one of Felt’s Shyrdaks tells a story; motifs are chosen to bestow blessings or describe the nomads’ life in the mountains. Each rug is a vibrant work of art, as practical and hardwearing as it is decorative.

Felt’s large collection of Shyrdaks includes new and vintage designs in all shapes and sizes from runners to room-size or round rugs. Prices start from £280 and bespoke Shyrdaks can also be made to special commission. 
CLASSIC CONTEMPORARY STYLE: THE MODENA
JANUARY 25TH 2016

New from Simon Horn, the Modena bed epitomises classic contemporary style; as much at home in minimalist settings as in today’s eclectic interiors.

Designed with a linear, architectural look, it features distinctive carved ribbing on both the headboard and the base. Handmade using two colours of limewood, it contrasts a dark stained base against a matt cream finish which references the vellum often used in art deco furniture.

Modern, yet so luxurious, the Modena comes in a wide range of sizes.
BRILLIANTLY ORGANISED BATHROOMS
JANUARY 21ST 2016

New at Alternative Bathrooms, Summit 2.0 holds the promise of beautiful, brilliantly organised bathrooms.  

The collection offers a wealth of different modular cabinets with purpose-fitted shelves and drawers to contain bathroom necessities, keeping them all organised and ready to hand.  It’s an architectural approach which works just as well for cloakrooms and small bathrooms as for larger spaces.  

The Summit 2.0 collection comes in a wide range of finishes, including gloss and matt lacquers in both neutral and vibrant colours and plain or stained natural timbers. The collection also includes co-ordinating mirrors, baths and basins.
INTRODUCING THE WATERMARK COLLECTION
JANUARY 20TH 2016
The Watermark Collection offers edgy, radical new views on bathroom and kitchen brassware, combining authentic industrial heritage with a contemporary decorative chic.  

Handcrafted in Brooklyn
Each piece is precisely machined from solid lead-free brass, hand finished and assembled to order. All this still takes place where the Watermark brand was born, in 1976, in Brooklyn, New York.  Many of the original craftsmen still work in the factory to this day, combining traditional metal finishing with precision engineering.





Architectural inspirations
Bringing Watermark’s signature looks to the UK and Europe, The Watermark Collection offers eight bold, architectural 
ranges. All of the ambition and technical prowess of New York’s architecture is distilled in designs including ‘Brooklyn’, inspired by gate valves in mid-century apartment blocks, ‘Elan Vital’, referencing the stripped-down aesthetic of a commercial ball valve and the stone-handled ‘Zen’, one of several intensely modern ranges in the collection. 

Bespoke combinations: Range, components and finish
The Watermark Collection describes itself as “a creative brand for creative people” offering boutique brassware.  With each range giving up to sixty different product options for kitchens and bathroom basins, baths and showers, customers create their own completely individual set-ups.  At the next level of choice, there are fifteen different 
finishes, including polished nickel, copper and gold, vintage brass, gun metal and pewter.  To achieve the luxurious, durable metal finishes which are such a signature of Watermark, every component goes through a process of hand polishing, plating and spraying which can take several days. The products are then hand assembled and intensively pressure tested before being packed for shipping.  Lead times are around ten to twelve weeks.

Leading designers: Prestige projects
The Watermark Collection includes brassware designs from leading names such as Clodagh Signature and Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman. Watermark has become a natural choice for architects and designers in projects which range from private houses to luxurious hotels all over the world.  Recent high profile projects include The Ritz-Carlton in Shanghai and Miami’s Eden Roc.
A VERY ENGLISH AESTHETIC
JANUARY 15TH 2016

Drawing on the classic forms of English furniture, the elegant and well-ordered proportions of Martin Moore’s bespoke kitchens make them perfect for Georgian, Victorian and even modern homes. Every kitchen is expertly, traditionally, custom-made in their Yorkshire workshops.

Martin Moore’s 
English kitchen combines fitted and freestanding pieces to create a calm and ordered space. Evident in every detail of the furniture, its very English aesthetic is brilliantly applied to modern living. Elements include the imposing freestanding dresser combining storage and display with bi-fold doors concealing a sink, microwave and coffee machine. 

The cabinetry is hand painted in Martin Moore’s own paint in cream and pale grey, whilst the Caesarstone worktops reflect this neutral scheme, with ‘Ginger’ against the wall and ‘Dreamy Marfil’ on the island. A chic white metro tiled splashback completes the look.

TREND 2016: MODERN GLOBAL
JANUARY 13TH 2016

Renowned for the classic French Lit Bateau, Simon Horn introduce a boat bed with a modern, global twist.  Inspired by the colours and shapes of antique Chinese furniture, it’s an oriental take on a traditional form. Featuring strong lines and vibrant colours, The Taipei sits perfectly with today’s travel-inspired interiors, comfortably mixing traditional and contemporary style.

Hand made from sustainable mahogany the Taipei is a characterful, statement bed. Finished in rich red and black lacquer, it can also be custom-finished in the customer’s choice of colour.
TIMELESS CLASSIC: BLUE AND WHITE
JANUARY 12TH 2016



The classic beauty of Blue and White has been captured by the London Basin Company, in five fabulously decorative porcelain basins. Designed by Anna Callis, founder of the London Basin Company, the patterns are inspired by centuries of global decorative arts from Chinese and Japanese to Middle Eastern and European patterns.

The happiest of partnerships, blue and white is a forever look for bathrooms, sitting perfectly with today’s eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary styles.

Available exclusively 
online, the London Basin Company offers ten different basins in a variety of designs and shapes.
THE LADYBOWER VANITY
JANUARY 11TH 2016
Drummonds have launched a design collaboration with interior architect and product designer Martin Brudnizki, producing an inspirational collection of bathroomware and accessories, notable in giving Drummonds a new more contemporary direction.

Stripping the vanity basin of traditional pomp and ceremony, Martin Brudnizki conceived the 
Ladybower with simplicity in mind. Elegant, light and modern, it uses classic white Arabescato marble and brassware in a pared-back design. Behind its contemporary lines lie functional considerations too, including good storage space for bathroom accessories and small, yet perfectly formed details such as the bent recess in the towel rail which ensures that the towel stays in place.

MAKE A THING A DAY
JANUARY 11TH 2016

 
Temper Studio’s innovative Instagram competition, Make a Thing a Day, offered the chance to win a different “small unique product” every day, handmade by George Winks at his idyllic Temper Studio workshops in Wiltshire. Prizes ranged from the ‘Plane’ low table to wood and copper planters, the ‘Disc’ adjustable bike rack and the remarkable ‘Choppy Waters’ wooden bowl.  A great week for all five prizewinners and for George, giving him another opportunity to flex his creative muscles making these small but perfectly formed pieces.
THE NEW PARQUET COLLECTION
JANUARY 7TH 2016
Refined and architectural, Lapicida’s new collection of marble and stone parquet showcases the return of decorative surfaces to contemporary interiors.

Lapicida’s new parquet collection includes Georgette, a distinctive vein-cut marble with delicate colour graduations. Silk Georgette offers a palette of subtle greys whilst Bronze Georgette has pale mink tones. Designed for walls and floors, Georgette offers cool sophistication for luxurious bathrooms, hallways and living rooms.

In contrast to the marble’s restrained geometric beauty, the collection also offers warm-toned and characterful stone parquet floors including Reclaimed English, with its wide range of natural colours, and the distinctive fossil-filled Hanover Blue.

TREND 2016: NATURE-INSPIRED COLOURS
JANUARY 6TH 2016
Meadow flowers, garden foliage, sea-tumbled pebbles, the soft blue of an English sky; just some of the inspirations behind the colours set to dominate interiors in 2016.  Nature provides the perfect counterpoint to our busy lives, with joyful hues to uplift, comfort and calm. 

No paint range does ‘Natural’ better than Edward Bulmer Natural Paint. Developed by interior designer and architectural historian Edward Bulmer, the collection offers 100% natural formulations and all-natural pigments derived from plants and minerals. 

Kind to people and the environment, 
Edward Bulmer Natural Paint is made with only sustainably produced raw materials such as beeswax, milk casein and linseed oil. These and the all-natural pigments give this paint a very special depth and intensity of colour… making it easy to achieve truly nature-inspired colour.
