The Use of Scallops in Design


The scallop technique, characterised by a series of graceful curves reminiscent of a scallop shell’s edge, is a beloved motif in both interior design and fashion. On today’s blog, we’re excited to showcase how we’ve incorporated this technique into our designs.

You’ll discover the scallop motif adorning our ‘Flora’ and ‘Ruby’ headboards, where the fluid curves beautifully mimic the scallop’s natural shape. This elegant outline serves as the ideal canvas for intricate appliques, adding a touch of charm and personality to our designs.

At Covent Garden Hotel, we’ve seamlessly integrated the scallop technique. Look no further than the scalloped edge adorning our drapery and bed tester, adding a refined finishing touch to the space.

From frames to lampshades and lamps, the painted scallop technique lends a sense of dimension and sophistication to our decorative accents.

In our ‘Geo’ collection for Spode, we’ve embraced the contemporary allure of the scallop edge, infusing boldness into each design. Pairing it with our timeless ‘Tall Trees’ collection for Spode creates a captivating contrast that enhances both collections. During our showcase at the Spode showroom in New York, we curated a display of plates housed in a dish cabinet adorned with scalloped edges. 

From our beloved Mimi’s cat palaces to the luxurious Power Shake Scallop Quilt for Annie Selke, the scalloped edge adds an enchanting touch to our designs.

At Warren Street Hotel, our latest creation, the scallop chair, showcases the timeless beauty of this technique, offering a sophisticated addition to any space.

We hope our use of the scallop technique has inspired you to incorporate this elegant detail into your own designs, adding a touch of charm and sophistication to every creation.
