Year of the Tiger
Chinese New Year is upon us and there are roaring festivities as this is the ‘Year of the Tiger’. Tigers are symbolic of bravery, strength and protection, which are all qualities worth celebrating after the unprecedented two years we’ve experienced.
Join us as we explore stripes and fearless interior designs, as we honour the majestic tiger.
We love Clarence House’s ‘Tibet Small Scale’ design and in room 202 at Charlotte Street Hotel, we’ve covered the cushions and upholstered our armchairs in this vibrant fabric. Its playful character gives depth to this space and makes a fun focal point.
House of Hackney’s ‘SABER’ cushions are inspired by traditional Tibetan motifs and make a wild statement in any room. For each item sold, House of Hackney purchase and protect 35 square metres of forest in partnership with the World Land Trust. A charity devoted to safeguarding natural ecosystems and threaded habitats. These velvet cushions roar with personality!
London based photographer Paul Fuentes takes us on a surrealist adventure to 1950’s Palm Springs. These big cats look like they’re enjoying themselves too.
Paul’s work reminds us of Slim Aarons’ iconic 1970 photograph, but with a whimsical twist.
Wicklewood has collaborated with Mola Sasa, a brand whose rich and diverse Columbian heritage is celebrated by working closely with indigenous communities. Fusing together traditional techniques and craftsmanship with vivid colours and motifs, they have created beautiful and unique designs. The ‘Tiger Jaguar’ collection is handmade by the ‘Guna Dale’ indigenous women, where they use ancient appliqué methods to create these intricate designs.
As a tiger year, we hope 2022 brings you opportunities to release your wild side. Be brave and go bold with your interiors!
