Exploring what’s nExt in intEriors with stylE library ContraCt…
Creating enchanting contract spaces, be they hotels, restaurants or bars, that captivate clientele is becoming ever more important. Style Library Contract (SLC) explore design trends that are on the horizon to see how they connect the contract interiors sector.
While there has been much focus on geometrics, the ‘Expressions’ trend focuses on graphics that add an instant visual interest to spaces. Merging pixelated forms, structured strié and urban geometrics resonate a boutique hotel vibe. Bold lines and powerful patterns from the new Harlequin Momentum collection fuse highlight colours and contrasting textures for a distinctly different feel. For depth and drama, Clarke & Clarke’s Kaleidoscope collection, sophisticated geometric styles captivate with multi-purpose velvets and boucle weaves.
Reconnecting with our love of nature, ‘Instil’ focuses on creating holistic spaces with interiors that celebrate the great outdoors, imagine serene woodland scenes, breathtaking vast landscapes and native wildlife set in an idyllic country house hotel. Sanderson’s Elysian collection with its earthy colour palettes perfectly captures the charm of the countryside. Islay Wools from Sanderson introduces classic wool plaids with a lovely marled wool quality – creating spaces with a peaceful nature. Crafted in the UK, each of the designs is 100% wool and inherently fire retardant, merging comfort and performance.
Carefully crafting contract interiors with a nuanced decadence, the ‘Considered’ trend announces opulence with subtlety and sophistication observed in luxury hotels. Exquisite detail and a refined approach are at the centre of creating a balanced sense of grandeur. Darnley from Zoffany perfectly encapsulates this by translating the famed elegance of English country houses and prints from the Zoffany archive into a contemporary collection with splendour and refinement. Jewel-like tones from the Alchemy of Colour palette embellish beautiful prints and textures across the selection of fabric and wallpaper.
Rooted in heritage, ‘Endure’ is all about ingraining spaces with a narrative that is ever-present, timeless and evokes warmth. As the clients seek more depth and detail, the demand for interior elements with provenance and a resonating story continues to grow. As custodians of William Morris’s original company, Morris & Co. continue to preserve the essence of Morris’s story in new collections. Pure Morris North tells the story of Morris’s deep-rooted love for the Icelandic landscape and captures all of its breathtaking beauty. This appreciation for heritage is also a constant for Sanderson Paint, having carved a reputation for their high-quality pigment, the brand continues to show enchanting colour palettes that transcend time and effortlessly complement a range of interior schemes.
Discover the selections in person as Style Library Contract will showcase all their latest collections at this year’s Sleep+Eat Show from 20-21 November 2018.
