David Netto for Soane Britain
This week, rattan expert Soane Britain will launch its collection with American interior designer David Netto. Netto is known for glamorous, modernist interiors that exude warmth and humour, and the range is a natural extension of the bespoke designs he has made for his clients over the years. Nine designs combine Soane Britain’s value of craftsmanship with David’s sleek sophisticated aesthetic.
H&M Home: For The Love Of Art
H&M Home has joined forces with three female artists to release a range of unique homeware pieces, including graphic cushions, blankets, ceramics and posters. Launching on 7th October, the aim is to support and raise awareness of smaller artists and producers – including creative duo Sacrée Frangine, painter Brunna Mancuso and artist Diana Ejaita.
This new interiors space lies just off Chelsea’s King’s Road. There, you can discover some of Soho Home’s best-selling pieces, as well as plenty of fresh styling inspiration. The Member Market will also showcase works by established and up-and-coming creatives, and Soho House members. Check out the upcoming calendar of events, grab a drink at the coffee shop or take home a bespoke floral arrangement from Soho Flowers. If you’re a member, you can also make use of a complimentary consultation with the Soho House interior design service.
These colourful bone inlay planters are made in India using buffalo bone (a by-product of the meat industry) by highly skilled artisans. Each planter comes with a tin insert for the plants, as well as a felt base to stop any surface scratches. Perfect if you’re looking to liven up an empty shelf or table.
The Other Art Fair
The Other Art Fair is a global organisation which, this month, will be exhibiting in London. Bringing together hundreds of forward-thinking artists and inspiring emerging artists, visitors will be able to discover thousands of works to suit their budget and personal taste. This year, extra events include a sound bath experience and a surreal treasure hunt.
London Craft Week
From 4th to 10th October, the capital will play host to arts and crafts producers from all over the world as part of London Craft Week, a festival which will celebrate more than 250 established and emerging makers, designers, brands and galleries. At Chelsea Barracks, there’s a full programme of events scheduled, including panel discussions and debates with experts like Ben Pentreath, Bernie De Le Cuona and Charu Gandhi. Meanwhile, other makers will take to the stage at Residency in Islington to present daily live demonstrations, including Nat Maks, who will explain how she creates her handmade marbled wallpaper and prints.
A multidisciplinary artist known for working with photography and paint, it’s actually Lottie Hampson’s ceramics which have caught our eye. Having worked on them now for a few years, Lottie has no formal training in the discipline – preferring instead to use her hands to mould and sculpt her creations, which are seriously worth the shelf space.
Pandora Taylor x Ensemblier
Wavy headboards aren’t going anywhere and Pandora Taylor’s new design – the first to launch as part of Ensemblier's debut 'off-the-peg' collection of sustainable, VOC-free headboards – is another winner. Called Kyma (which translates from Greek as ‘wave’) it’s the perfect piece to elevate any bedroom scheme.
George Smith x Sims Hilditch
We’ve long admired Emma Sims Hilditch’s eye for interiors, so we were excited to hear about her new collaboration with upholsterer George Smith. Launching on 11th October, the capsule collection includes the Emma Sofa, Chair and Ottoman – all of which have been designed to suit both country and city homes. The elegant, curved lines strike the ideal balance between comfort and formality, making them pieces to treasure forever.
We love Kalinko’s classic, grown-up take on the rattan trend. After living in Burma for a year, the founders set up the brand to showcase the products made by the local, highly skilled craftspeople there. Still there, the founders have become completely invested in the local industry – and we can’t wait to see how the business grows. For now, make a beeline for the white woven range.
Richard Brendon x V&A
Combining contemporary design with top-class craftsmanship, British designer Richard Brendon has added to his crystal and bone china collections with a new handblown glassware range (London, 1650) and a new collaboration with the V&A. Shining a light on the golden era of Georgian ceramics, the range consists of four striking saucers to pair with his signature gold and silver reflective teacups, as well as four decorated mugs.
Slim Aarons Style
Tapping into the cultural zeitgeist, Slim Aarons’s photographs are synonymous with the style and glamour of the 1970s. Showcasing some of the most iconic locations from around the world, his pictures record the lifestyles, fashion, interiors and architecture of the moment. If you can’t quite stretch to an original or a print, this coffee table classic is the next best thing.
