Coleccion Alexandra is a young and dynamic atelier producing exclusive, hand made furniture. The company has a unique philosophy and a personal character, developing a bespoke concept from the designer’s perspective, and not from the usual supplier approach. For that - they don’t limit their collection simply to furniture design, but instead take a holistic approach embracing all interior aspects from decorative accessories and fabrics through to curtains and lighting - all with a finely honed style. Evocative spaces, warm and inviting atmospheres, modern and eclectic ambiences and a sublime, natural refinement is the brand collective that Colección Alexandra stamps on all its projects guided by its award winning interior design department, ALEXANDRA DESIGN STUDIO.www.coleccionalexandra.com

Urbem Lighting

002

Internationally renowned designer Christopher Jenner presented their inspirational ‘Urbem’ lighting collection at this year’s show and we were smitten! The eight piece portfolio draws inspiration from late 19th century Milanese street lighting - Jenner employs the era’s profound industrial and technological ambition to devise an emotive collection of futuristic lighting. Urbem’s handmade triple layered opal with glass shades are a study in convex and concave form. Impressively sized, measuring 400mm x 600mm, Jenner’s designs challenge the boundaries of what is achievable in the art of glass blowing. Each piece features an innovative crafted chain which integrates the power source with design, a hand crafted aesthetic married which fulfils modern-day requirements. Christopher Jenner comments: “I am inspired by the innovation of 19th century Europe where craft and technology collided to create many of the iconic hallmarks of the present day. Our future potential lies in uniting the achievements of our past with the possibilities of our contemporary age, as demonstrated through this collection.”www.christopher-jenner.com

SoFarSoNear

London based Hospitality Interiors specialist SoFarSoNear unveiled several new designs at this year's expo. Known for its commitment to both function and form the agency profiled several unique furniture designs that encompass the philosophy of contemporary design and sustainable manufacture:

Cuprum – a contemporary and inspiring collection of textiles especially suited for the luxury and hospitality industries. An eye-catching copper fabric, it combines the sheen of metal leaf with the softness of an exquisite woven textile. The uniqueness of the Cuprum collection is the result of innovative production methods and weaving techniques developed by SoFarSoNear.  Fabric colour palettes options include gold, copper, titanium, black, rose and salmon. Cuprum is flame retardant and highly resistant, thus making it an ideal fabric for use in commercial or hospitality environments.

The skilled team at Chelini make unique pieces of furniture, bespoke designs that are hand made by artisan craftsmen in Firenze.

Atelier Textiles

002

Innovative soft furnishing company, Atelier Textiles, celebrated its first show in style at Decorex 2014 showcasing its exclusive collection of curtain panels, bedding and soft furnishings. Lara Colgan, owner and Director of Atelier Textiles, has a passion for antique and vintage textiles which inspires her to create pieces with integrity and unique character. The hand-worked furnishings display beautiful embellishment, often referencing historical designs, and using skilled artisanship to create high quality and often bespoke pieces “Designers love working with beautiful objects and we want to provide them with exquisite soft furnishings which reveal a human touch,” she explains. “Our designs are timeless and the techniques, such as appliqué and hand embroidery, lend texture and an air of refined comfort unavailable to mass produced pieces. We felt there was a niche for a new type of soft furnishings company using such skills, but applied to more contemporary designs and with updated colours that mesh well with both modern and classic interiors.” www.AtelierTextiles.com
