Additions to Mid-Century Furniture Collection
The highly successful mid-century collection has been extended to include new pieces, inspired by iconic 1950s European and American designers. The range of bedside tables, chests, a desk, sofa, chaise longue, armchairs and footstools is shown in the stylised context of a glamorous 1950s film set - not difficult to imagine Lana Turner and Cary Grant just out of shot.

KIT KEMP COLLECTION USA LAUNCH PARTY
Hot on the heels of launching the new Kit Kemp fabric collection in London, Chelsea Textiles hosted an exclusive party in New York at the wonderful Crosby Hotel. The hotel is part of the Firmdale Group, owned and designed by Kit and her husband, so it was a very fitting location to launch the collection in the USA.
Chelsea Textiles founder, Mona Perlhagen hosted the cocktail party which took place in the Crosby Hotel’s drawing room and guests made the most of the leafy courtyard garden, which the drawing room opens on to. Guests included magazine editor-in-chiefs and loyal customers and suppliers whom Chelsea Textiles have known for many years. Everyone enjoyed delicious canapés and refreshing cocktails, whilst being able to view exquisite pieces from the new collection which was designed in collaboration with Kit Kemp and Chelsea Textiles’ Design Director, Jenny Simpson.
KIT KEMP COLLECTION UK LAUNCH PARTY
Chelsea Textiles celebrated the official launch of the Kit Kemp fabric collection at the exclusive Covent Garden Hotel in central London. Kit Kemp and Mona Perlhagen welcomed guests to the wonderful drawing room upstairs in the hotel where guests enjoyed cocktails and delicious canapés. Pieces from the exquisite collection including cushions, bedspreads and upholstered furniture were on display enabling guests to fully appreciate the intricate and imaginative fabric designs. The collection, which was designed in collaboration with Kit Kemp and Chelsea Textiles’ Design Director, Jenny Simpson, is inspired by Kit’s love of the whimsical and lyrical, and her love of animals, both real and imaginary.
CHELSEA TEXTILES LAUNCHES KIT KEMP COLLECTION
Chelsea Textiles launches an exquisite, hand-embroidered fabric collection, designed in collaboration with Kit Kemp, Design Director of Firmdale Hotels. The collection, Kit Kemp for Chelsea Textiles, is inspired by Kit’s love of the whimsical and lyrical, and her love of animals, both real and imaginary. Featuring a series of characters and patterns that have a primitive, almost folkloric feel, the collection shows a series of narratives that playfully unfold on the fabric, from a star gazing dog and a sailor’s farewell to mythical creatures and a modern take on a Suzani.
“I’ve always cherished embroidery, as an art form as well as a constant source of inspiration for the fabrics I use to decorate the rooms in my hotels. There is something timeless and precious about embroidery, it demands to be treasured. To sit on the floor surrounded by beautiful fabrics is where I always love to be.” says Kit Kemp.
