There are always new materials, fixtures and fittings being released. Here we highlight some of our favourites from the last few months
Stitched Wool Blinds
Part of a collection of curtains and blinds from Stitched.co.uk, a startup dedicated to sustainable and recycled textiles, this blind range is designed to bring a modern twist to a traditional home staple. Ideal for residential projects where sustainability is key, the collection will be launching officially at London Design Fair in September.
Carronade Luminaire Series
A collection of lamps from Le Klint, Carronade combines wood and aluminium to create a series of pendants and free-standing designs that are industrial yet warm. Drawing inspiration from 18th century cannon designs, the lamps are available in a selection of shades, with wood details in either oak or walnut, with gold-colour brass or silver elements.
Chi Eco Bamboo Basin
Set for a full launch in September, but available in a limited pre-sale at present, the Chi Eco Bamboo Basin from Lovasi is an ideal option for projects where wellness and sustainability is key. A freestanding wash basin made of 100% bamboo sealed with a waterproof varnish, the product is ideal for both residential and commercial projects.
Scales Light Panel
Designed to simultaneously function as decoration and acoustic panelling, Scales Light is part of a selection of cork panels from Magna Natura. Featuring a raw, frenzied finish, the panel is also available in a darker shade, and is ideal for projects where sustainability and natural materials are key.
Recycled HDPE Plastic Sheets
Ideal for a host of surface applications, Weez & Merl’s recycled HDPE plastic sheets elevate plastic to a sustainable, luxury material. By reapplying woodworking skills, the company has developed unique techniques to turn waste products such as plastic bags into striking surfaces with marble-like patterns.
