The resurgence of interest in hand crafted products and focus on the home is reflected in the emerging designs of younger textile designers. Catherine Crew's final degree show at the Winchester School of Art has an edgy, hand crafted quality, using strong motifs of domesticity. Images such as cutlery and clocks are arranged with architectural precision. The colour palette of soft blues and greys are lifted by flashes of pistachio and white.
At Icon Interiors, our clients are constantly asking us to source products which do not come from the high street, and where they can meet the artist directly to discuss their works or commission bespoke pieces. As interior designers, we are delighted to be contacted by artists and often visit gallery exhibitions and artists' studios.
