Graham & Brown Unvelis New Collection
Unveiled at London Design Festival last month, Graham & Brown‘s latest wallpaper collections include new patterns by fashion icon Barbara Hulanicki, global designer and superstar Marcel Wanders, and elegant designs from Graham & Brown's own in-house design studio.
Style icon and founder of London brand Biba, Barbara Hulanicki introduced two new wallpaper designs; The Hypnotist and Funky Flora. The Hypnotist is inspired by the monochrome geometric prints of Op Art and recreated from an original Biba jumpsuit. Funky Flora is inspired by an original Biba fabric, featured on pieces including dresses, hats and jumpsuits. This is the third collaboration between Graham & Brown and Barbara Hulanicki, who commented, "It's incredible to think that I'm creating wallpapers inspired by dresses I designed 50years ago. The new wallpaper collection is striking – rich in colour and pattern and the designs make a stylish interiors statement. I'm delighted to share a little of Biba's 50 year history and bring a fashion revolution to the home!"
Inspired by illusion and mystery, Marcel Wanders’ new designs feature bold organic, geometric and typographic patterns. The nine patterns are grouped into five different categories and include; a geometrical wall tile with floral accents called ‘Wallflower’, in which the lotus flower is rendered to give the appearance of a three dimensional tiled wall; the rhythmic ‘Heart & Tulip’ pattern, which resembles a carved wooden surface, and comes in mahogany, ash and birch; ‘Dreams Come True’ and ‘Petit Papillon’ feature embossed calligraphy and botanical patterns.
In the third group of patterns, a flocking technique is visible in ‘Braille Chester’, a diamond pattern in which depth and the illusion of light and shadow is achieved through a pixelated surface, and Forest Muse, a floral damask in which the optical illusion is reinforced by hidden winged fairies. ‘World Heritage’, available in black, blue and gold, is reminiscent of Victorian designs, while the subtle ‘Maestro Stripe’ and 'Reflections’ patterns are perfect for versatile home styling.
Northern Rose has been unveiled as the brand’s Wallpaper of the Year for 2015. Inspired by the beautiful hand painted floral trail artwork discovered in the archive, Northern Rose with its bold colour palette is strikingly modern. The pattern features vibrant pink roses, painstakingly re-drawn and hand painted by the in-house design studio, over a sky blue background, with a delicate silver print entwined within the design.
Skin is a new collection of six exotic designs thart were created by the in-house Graham & Brown design team.
Inspired the beauty of the wilderness and the animal prints seen on the fashion catwalks this season, the embossed and embellished collection of zebra, leopard, tiger, alligator, ostrich and fur prints will transform your home with a wild yet elegant and luxurious animal magic.
