    Heritage Bathrooms blends eras to create the wow factor in the bathroom

    Heritage Bathrooms’ bold mix and match styling of the Victoria Suite has been recognised as one of the stand out images at this year’s Best of Houzz Awards…

    The inspirational design and interiors from Heritage Bathrooms put a spotlight on the statement design, which is a stunning example of how to blend old and new interiors styling.

    This look is on trend and full of character, creating a beautiful and timeless space that your guests will simply want to while away the hours during their stay. As evidenced by the Houzz-awarded design, it looks beautiful paired with bold, Baroque floral wallpapers.

    In honour of this trend, Charlie Williams, interior designer at Heritage Bathrooms, shares her top five tips on how hoteliers can create stunning bathroom spaces for guests by blending traditional and contemporary design.

    Work with prints & patterns

    Elegant florals and bold botanical wallpaper prints can bring a traditional twist to even the most ultra-modern of bathroom suites. This image of the Victoria Suite by Heritage Bathrooms, which featured in Houzz’s Best of 2019, is a beautiful example of how patterned wallpaper can be used with a standard basin, toilet and fitted bath to create a sleek and charming look.

    Alternatively, traditional pieces, such as a Victorian style high-rise basin, can be off-set with on-trend geometric patterned tiling. Classic chequer board tiling is also guaranteed to bring a timeless aesthetic to any style of bathroom suite.

    CDW 19 PREVIEW: Morgan to launch new collaborative projects

    Morgan, contract furniture designer and manufacturer, will showcase two new collaborative projects at its London showroom (1 Dallington Street, EC1V 0BH) during Clerkenwell Design Week from May 21 – 23, 2019…

    Morgan is gearing up for Clerkenwell Design Week where it will unveil the result of two authentic collaborations with outside designers.

    The architectural Rakino lounge collection, by designer Tim Rundle, juxtaposes soft sculpted upholstery with a strong, low line frame. The clean linear structure emphasises crisp timber detailing born from a dialogue between the precision of CNC manufacturing and a handcrafted finish. The collection will offer two lounge chairs and a selection of coffee tables.

    Following Mark McClure’s bold and dynamic installation at the company’s showroom two years ago, Morgan has collaborated for a second time with the artist to create a selection of new feature coffee tables for the Goodwood collection. Pushing the boundaries between furniture and art, the tables are characterised by strong geometric inlay tops with splashes of brass.

    Also on display will be the recent additions to the Rio table collection. Combining skills and expertise with architect Mehran Gharleghi of studio INTEGRATE, the expanded collection of tables includes geometric 3D printed components. The first of its kind within the sector to include this cutting edge technology with a commercially viable price point, the sophisticated and singular collection is not to be missed.

    The new products will sit alongside a complete showroom transformation, following the theme ‘Plant a Seed’. Morgan has invited artist David Shillinglaw back to its showroom, following the company’s first collaboration in 2015.

    “Flowing across the front of the showroom will be an organic lighting installation by Tom Raffield”

    ‘Alive in the Human Hive’ promises to be an energetic and colourful large-scale art installation that will fill the double height main wall. The piece will be a representation of the human landscape, informed by both local and global environments and the ways we experience the planet. Recent smaller canvases by David will also be up for grabs.

    Flowing across the front of the showroom will be an organic lighting installation by Tom Raffield, made up of Aram and Quill pendant and wall lights as well as a spectacular Flock chandelier, inspired by the organic shapes, movements and sequential patterns that surround us.

    Launch party, live music and more

    Join Morgan at its buzzing Clerkenwell showroom for a number of social and thought-provoking events throughout the week.

    Tuesday will include a panel talk by Double Decker curators Wilhelm Finger and Melita Skamnaki, entitled ‘Redefining Hotel Art’, on how they challenge stereotypes in hospitality. The talk will lead into Morgan’s annual product launch party with tasty canapés and live music.

    On the Wednesday, Tom Raffield himself will be giving a talk entitled ‘Taking Inspiration from Nature’. During the talk, Tom will share his passion for the organic forms and structures found in the natural world, and why they play such an important role in the brand’s designs, materials and signature curved aesthetic.
