Susan Deliss

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to visit  Susan Deliss’s  Nothing Hill studio. Susan was another ‘Instagram discovery’ and I was looking forward to meeting her. Stepping into her lovely studio was like entering Aladdin’s Cave: old and new silk ikats, embroideries, kilims, velvets and linens…a feast for the eyes!

Susan Deliss - Directorio Deco by Gloria Gonzalez   Deliss had always been passionate about textiles but it wasn’t until 5 years ago when she decided to set up her own company. Previously she used to work as a lawyer for an investment fund , and back then she would use any spare time on her trips (very often to the Middle East) to source fabrics for her ever growing collection.

She works with very skilled artisans that help her to translate her designs into reality. Susan’s attention to detail left me speechless:  the colours, the texture,the pattern…she surely knows what she wants and the result of everything is simply impeccable.

Fermoie

I’ve been following British brand Fermoie for a while and I must say that I love everything they do. Their fabrics are classic but playful, the colours are so chic and the patterns are just perfect!

Fermoie‘s inspiration lies in the pages of a large portfolio of paint colours that it was given to Tom Helme when he was appointed advisor on decoration to the National Trust. Passed on from Christopher Wall, then historic buildings representative, the portfolio’s sheets and scraps of paint colour had been applied by John Fowler, from whom Tom took over, and kept and collated by Christopher.

Alongside Martin Ephson, Tom is now co-founder of  Fermoie. Tom continues to consult the swatches of colour and strokes of paint which provide inspiration for their own unique method of fabric printing.

“Fermoie’s aim is to capture the life, light and enjoyment of old woven extiles. We print traditionally with a light touch using pigments creating a subtle impression but with the depth of a woven fabric”, Tom Helme, Co-founder

Aerin for Lee Jofa

Aerin Lauder has joined forces with Lee Jofa for the second time to create a new tasteful collection.

The enduring theme is sophisticated and feminine, with a bohemian charm: classic Asian prints; vibrant floral and paisley embroideries; a classic brocatelle; ethnic inspired jacquards, and neutral textures that are perfect for pairing.

Alongside the beautifully crafted textiles, they have also introduced wall coverings: a classic leopard design, and a three-panel scenic mural on fine linen created from an 18th-century design.
