As our long summer comes to an end, we take a look at the latest collections from Osborne & Little. Each collection features a variety of vibrant prints and fabrics, perfect for brightening up your home this autumn.
One of the recently added collections is Deya by Matthew Williamson. Williamson is known for his love of colourful patterns and global influences, and this new collection is no different. Inspired by the atmosphere of the Balearic Island of Mallorca, these fabrics feature many embroidered exotic designs that reflect Mediterranean colours and themes. This influence is evident in some of the fabric names: ‘Valldemosa’, named after one of the small villages in Mallorca, ‘Formentera’, a small Balearic island, and ‘Talavera’, which is named after Talavera de la Reina, Spain. This city is known for its ceramics, which Williamson has presented clearly in this fabric through the uses of vivid colour and decorative prints. The cultural influence that Williamson had in Mallorca is reflected in the rich detail of this collection, which we are certain will brighten up any home.
To accompany this colourful collection, Williamson has also launched Calobra, which is a pair of versatile fabrics that will coordinate beautifully with Deya. These chenille fabrics come in a wide range of colours and are the perfect companion for the patterned designs.
Nina Campbell’s latest collection, Les Indiennes, was inspired by 17th and 18th century French vogue textile designs that originated in India. She breaks away from her iconic blue, coral and aqua palette that usually features in her collections and has instead created unique colour combinations that feature pairings of black with emerald and red with teal. The Indian influence is clear to see in the floral patterns, such as the Indian flowers that also feature on her textured wallpapers, such as 'Baville', a wallpaper from the collection.
Campbell's collection has more than patterned designs. She has also introduced the Poquelin collection, the ideal complement for Les Indiennes. The collection is named after Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, the real name of 17th century dramatist Moličre. The fabrics are semi-plain and elegant, with a wide range of colours for each one. 'Colette', named after 20th century novelist Gabrielle Colette, is a smart linen that is available in thirteen colours, meaning that there is one for every interior.
Here at Calico, we love these new collections. This range of beautiful patterns and styles offer you the ultimate versatility to decorate your home with this autumn. This wide range of designs will make a lovely feature in any room.
