Hotel Designs recommended supplier Kobe has gone crazy for bold. Influenced by the catwalk, colour blocking is making a comeback…
Whether it’s a bold scheme to grab attention, or a subtle approach creating an element of calm, luxury fabric specialist Kobe has a host of curtain and upholstery fabrics that work the look.
David Harris, Kobe‘s managing director, said: “The colour blocking trend was first apparent in the 60s, followed by the 80s and has returned for modern day. Each era has its own element and we love the idea of transforming a plain room with simple additions such as curtains or soft furnishings in a vibrant colour.”
Perfect for creating a statement is Kobe’s multi-purpose matte-velvet look Volterra collection, which is suitable for both contract and domestic use. The range features an extensive selection of 54 shades, including stand-out-from-the-crowd fuschia, rich blues and vibrant greens.
Harris continued: “Velvets are perfect for creating a really opulent scheme but can be played down by keeping the rest of the interior fairly simple.”
Kobe’s Shantung collection is a polyester and linen mix curtain fabric with an extensive colour palette of 50 shades. It includes the latest jewel tones such as deep purples, aqua greens and sapphire reds – ideal for creating a pop of colour.
In addition, Kobe’s Scala collection includes 205 colours of the spectrum, from neutral to black and every colour in between. While room-high range, Rome has 32 shades and Argento has 47 statement tones.
Kobe’s impressive selection of upholstery fabrics include the very latest designs and textures available in a vibrant colour selection. They include Pechemelba in a choice of 53 colours, Popping CS with a handful of zesty yellows, greens and berry tones. Real has the benefit of an extensive 64 range colour palette and is suitable for severe contract use, achieving 60,000 rubs on the Martindale Rub Test.
