It’s no secret, we have a love for patterns and geometrics at our Design Studio, but today we want to focus on one shape in particular – the diamond. Whether using the shape as the main focus in a scheme or as an accent, this versatile pattern packs a punch! Join us as we explore some examples of how we’ve incorporated diamond shapes into our designs…
In this suite at The Soho Hotel, we have covered our Polly chairs and sofa throw cushions in a bold red and white diamond patterned weave. The blue linen walls and sofa let the patterns do all the talking. The design of this fabric is a busy one, so we’ve kept surrounding furniture simple by using block colours.
Here in this bedroom at Knightsbridge Hotel, our Ellie headboard is covered in a zippy multicoloured fabric. Its geometric design evokes a sense of masculinity, creating a balance with the floral wallpaper seen in the mirror’s reflection.
Our ‘Domino’ pattern has been purposed for both carpet and wallpaper designs. It has a subtle diamond pattern that consists of individual blocks, intricately placed to create the overall appearance. Although detailed, the analogous colours in this design are aesthetically pleasing and produce a calming effect.
At Crosby Street Hotel, we have more subtle examples of diamond patterns, as seen on the headboard in room 1005 and on the bed skirt in room 501. Selecting a fabric with a more subdued diamond pattern can act as adding a textured weave to your scheme. It’s important to bring in a textural element to add depth and interest to any room.
Here in this Superior Loft Suite at Charlotte Street Hotel, we’ve introduced a ‘Jelly Roll’ rug from our Annie Selke collection. Available in three colourways, this timeless geometric diamond pattern is a nod to old world charm but with a contemporary twist. It’s the perfect rug to centre your scheme around when creating that Bloomsbury look we all adore!
If a diamond patterned fabric doesn’t have a place in your scheme, you can always introduce the design through a woven tapestry or even paint a frame to add some pizazz.
