Another nice discovery from the last week. Beatrice Larkin is London based designer creating beautiful woven textiles for the home. Very soft, cozy and Scandinavian-style collection will work so well in Ardesia Design's interiors! ;)

From her website:

After graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2013, Beatrice Larkin established her label with the desire to create design-led textiles for the home.
A diverse mix of detailed CAD drawings, freehand sketches and manipulated weave structures all come together to generate her patterns. There is a softened geometry in these textiles that derives from an organic approach to clean modernist design.
Working from her London studio, she uses highly skilled mills and finishers in the UK to weave fabrics made from the softest merino and lambswool. Passionate about honest craftsmanship, her collections are woven in small runs with a focus on quality, texture and the individual characteristics of each piece of cloth.

As every year we visited Clerkenwell Design Week to see what's going on in the design world. We've seen most of brands that are usually there but also got to know some new ones.

In the crypt of St James's Church we have found cool company from East London producing contemporary furniture with some Scandinavian twist.

From their website:

Lozi was founded in 2012 by Soroush Pourhashemi whose passion for innovation and simplicity underpins the brand’s ethos. Our unique combination of digital manufacturing and traditional woodworking methods produces elegantly minimal designs full of personality that will fit seamlessly into any contemporary home. The makers at Lozi continuously develop new techniques to reduce waste ensuring that our furniture production has minimal impact on the environment.

Extra sleek and modern interiors may be still cozy if you use some wood to warm the space up.

You can spot velvets in fashion, as well as in interior design. If bold coloured velvets is not your thing, why not to try pastel pink tones? Pale pink velvet is the most soft and relaxing material ever. 

Round mirror is an easy trick to add a design twist to your bathroom. 

Smooth finishes and soft light work perfect in either small or large space.

Black frame is one of the hottest trends these days. Can be used in a decorative way as well as part of the interior design.

Talking about patterned products, Italian tile brand released new amazing collection with patterns. We are waiting to receive samples and meanwhile just admiring those pictures.

Le Riggiole is a tribute to majolica floor tiles associated with the Mediterranean tradition. A contemporary re-visitation that refreshes, through a fresh and original language, the idea of a refined and classical d├ęcor. Le Riggiole comes in 12 designs: 8 in size 20x20cm (18 patterns boxed randomly in 8 different colours - four on a white base and four on a black base) and 4 in size 60x60cm (one pattern only).


 Patterned tiles are a very practical WOW factor for the hallway. Tiles are usually quite durable and easy to maintain which makes them a perfect floor finish for high traffic areas such as hallway. Adding some pattern to the floor in the hallway will help to add some interest and visually break the space, making it seem larger.

We have used patterned tiles from Mutina collection for one of our Projects and we love the result a lot.
