Dogs on Parade - A new collection by Domenica More Gordon

Chelsea Textiles is delighted to announce a new collaboration with illustrator and popular children's author Domenica More Gordon - Dogs on Parade.

This delightful collection of hand embroidered cushions and fabrics translates Domenica's pen and ink drawings and water colours, capturing the very essence of dog, into delicate hand embroidery. The perfect present for any dog lover.

Introducing french country

Chelsea Textiles is launching its new collection of hand embroidered fabrics influenced by the 18th century engravings of Oberkamph, a French naturalised German industrialist was a printer and engraver who became famous for founding the royal manufacture of printed cottons of Jouy-en-Josas where the toile de Jouy was manufactured.

A furniture collection has been also launched to complement the hand embroidered fabrics which includes hand carved and hand painted commodes, side tables, buffet and wine stations all finely hand distressed to recreate the flavour and the vibrant colours of the French country style.

CHELSEA TEXTILES RETURNS TO THE 1950s FILM SETS

At Maison & Objet 2012, Chelsea Textiles transported visitors to a 1950s era New York City film set as the company debuted its new range of Mid-Century inspired fabrics and furniture. 

Chelsea Textiles launched three stunning new contemporary fabric designs – Draper, Axel  and 1953 – all screen printed on 100% linen. The fabrics complement the new line of hand carved and hand painted solid wood furniture pieces, which feature wood and bamboo handles and brass finishes. The clean lines and subtle, muted colours balance perfectly with today’s pared down, contemporary interiors.

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.

Launch Party

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.

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.

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.
