ARTS THREAD takes part in the first edition of Indigo Paris Home today and brings you the news from the show, also on tomorrow at Bourse de Commerce, Paris.
Simon Ashby from the UK told us to look out for large watercolour florals, designs featuring birds and birdhouses and vintage postcard-style designs using both imagery and text.
New to Indigo is Pixtil, a new studio set up less than a year ago by Dephine Saltet and her partner Olivier, dedicated to both woven and printed textiles. The sleek modern website, with its online boutique offering fully ready-to-go digitalised formats, comes as no surprise as Olivier studied and worked in interaction design prior to setting up Pixtil. Delphine’s background is textile design; like Olivier, a graduate of l’École Nationale de Création Industrielle de Paris (ENSCI) and her subtle contemporary designs are as modern as its website.
Lee Design Studio is based in Seoul and president Sung Hyan Lee explained to us that his business is based strongly on texture and the studio’s geometric handwriting has helped them work for Korean giants Samsung and LG, as well as European companies. Look out for metallic, neutral tones and contemporary patterns from nature.
Susanna Samson based in London specisalise in vintage prints and are now branching out into selling prints for interiors, with top sellers being 40s and 50s florals, paisleys and toile de jouy designs.
Sandra Jacobs from the Netherlands creates designs for the interior market which she describes as ‘contemporary with a poetic context’ and this edition new designs include large-scale fresh, happy florals, as well as vintage-inspired pictorials.
Diane Harrison studio told us that requests were very varied, with a lot of vintage, plus bold colourful graphcs and textures.
