Style Library Contract – Winter Trends
Whether it’s hotels, restaurants or bars creating contract interiors that captivate clientele is becoming ever more important. Style Library Contract (SLC) explore today’s design trends to see how they connect the contract interiors sector.
Merging pixelated forms, structured strié and urban geometrics the ‘Expressions’ trend focuses on graphics that add an instant visual interest to spaces. Tactile textures and geometrics have a transformative influence in creating a boutique ambience. Bold lines and powerful patterns from the new Harlequin Momentum collection fuse highlight colours and contrasting textures for a distinctly different feel. Depth and drama are folded in with Clarke & Clarke’s Kaleidoscope collection, sophisticated geometric styles captivate through multipurpose velvets and boucle weaves.
Reconnecting with our love of nature, ‘Instil’ focuses on creating holistic spaces with interiors that celebrate the great outdoors, choose from serene woodland scenes, breath-taking vast landscapes or native wildlife. Capture the essence of the natural world with Sanderson’s Elysian collection, earthy colour palettes beautifully capturing the charm of an idyllic country house hotel. In compliment, Islay Wools from Sanderson introduces classic wool plaids with a lovely marled wool quality – crafting 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. Exquisite detail and a refined approach are at the centre of creating a balanced sense of grandeur observed in luxury hotels. 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 story that resents with them and makes them feel something is growing. As custodians of William Morris’ original company, Morris & Co. continue to preserve the essence of Morris’s story in new collections. Pure Morris North tells the story of one man’s deep-rooted love towards the Icelandic landscape and captures all of its breath-taking beauty. This appreciation for heritage in 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 compliment a range of interior schemes.
