Mellow paint, a fringed glass shade and a wallcovering inspired by spilled ink – these are the products that caught my eye this week
Wallcoverings Volume 2 is a colleciton of contemporary designs from Kirkby Design.
Featuring bold geometrics, contemporary flock and metallics, the designs are printed on a blended ground of plant based FSC certified wood pulp and sustainable corn fibre. Kirkby says the manufacturing process produces 30% less greenhouse gas than traditional wallpaper materials such as vinyl. (image at top shows Tear from Wallcoverings Volume 2)
Timorous Beasties is also launching a new wallpaper design. Wee Pinyin derives from the brands’ Pinyin Tree pattern and originated when co-founder Paul Simmons noticed the beauty of spontaneous ink mop marks blotched across the studio floor. The mop marks were then translated onto wallpaper to create the basis of the Pinyin Tree design.
Wee Pinyin has been created on a smaller scale to Pinyin Tree, on 52cm wide wallpaper, and in a new range of colours
British blown glass studio, Rothschild & Bickers, has introduced its new Vintage Bell lighting collection.
Available in seven signature heritage colours as well as a new peach option, the hand blown glass shades are embellished with a decorative trim. There is also a choice of metal finishes and flex.
The Mellow Collection from YesColours celebrates saturated hues but with a slight black undertone to calm the vibrancy – making them more suitable for period and retro schemes.
YesColours are a carbon reducing brand. The paint is supplied in plastic pouches which are fully recyclable and weight efficient for transport.
