US Launch Party
Chelsea Editions-Chelsea Textiles celebrated their launch of new fabric and furniture collections with a trip through five centuries of design. Guests were welcomed to an evening of sumptuous variety held at their Manhattan showroom.
From Alidad’s richly embroidered Medici-inspired fabrics and borders to Neisha Crosland’s distinctly twentieth century embroideries, together with Chelsea Textiles’ own Gustavian and mid-twentieth century furniture.
Chelsea Textiles promised a sumptuous trip though the ages and it did not disappoint. It kicked off with cocktails and canapés to the sound of 50s crooners in the newly refurbished Walton Street corner shop, where Neisha Crosland greeted guests anxious to see her collection for Chelsea Textiles. Next door in the fabric showroom, a lavish table setting reminiscent of a Renaissance banquet, made the perfect setting to launch Alidad's second collaboration with Chelsea Textiles, The Medici Collection. Delicious Italian food and wine was flowing and the guests spilled out into the street in the sunshine.
Alidad and Chelsea Textiles - a new collection
International interior designer, Alidad has recently designed his second fabric collection, The Medici, for renowned company, Chelsea Textiles. His first collection, The Bosphorus, was a considerable success for the company.
The designs for The Medici Collection can be used in a wide variety of settings, for curtains, fabric walling, occasional chairs and light upholstery. The designs’ versatility can create different moods. “If you want a window treatment to look light, you can use a plain fabric and attach it to a coordinating border. In the same way, you can have simple walling and create your own paneled room with the borders,” says Alidad.

AT LONG LAST! THE GRÄSHOPPA
The much sought after Chelsea Textiles Gräshoppa Lamp, inspired by Greta Magnusson Grossman, a 1950s Swedish designer, is now in stock. As soon as early prototypes were unveiled in 2009, they were seized upon by stylists and design journalists and photographed for many publications in Europe and the USA, creating an unprecedented demand. Initially made only to order the Gräshoppa Lamp is now available for immediate delivery.
The articulated metal bell shade, standing on a graceful angled stem, ending in three metal legs, is an iconic 50s reading lamp of spare elegance. Given added sophistication by a choice of any one of Chelsea Textiles' fourteen signature colours, from muted blues, greens and neutrals to rich rust and burgundy, it will enhance any space, from library to office to bedroom.
As with all Chelsea Textiles' new ventures, there is an emphasis on versatility in the colouring, making the Lamp a worthy complement to any interior, whether a traditional library or the most contemporary sitting room.

Embroidered Fabrics designed by Neisha Crosland
Many of the themes, such as flora and medallions, have been taken from Neisha’s early scarf designs, others, including moghul and speckle flower, from previously unpublished artwork, inspired by trips to India and Japan.
