Luxury fabric specialist, Kobe UK, will be showcasing its latest collections from Kobe and Essente at May Design Series on May 17-19. The Kobe collections include the contemporary and chic Aurora, inspired by urban Nordic lifestyles and suitable for window décor and upholstery. It is available in an extensive colour palette and comprises a range of high satins, sumptuous velvets, intricately patterned jacquards and laser cut fabrics.
City Chic, inspired by Hollywood’s Golden Age, reflects the lavish glitz and glamour reminiscent of this style period. The 11-design collection includes opulent velvets, fluid satins, woven jacquards and dobbies plus faux silk and leather, suitable for upholstery and soft furnishings. It also features plains in trendy colours, patterns ranging from traditional pied de poulé to fantasy animal skin and natural fabrics incorporating metallic yarns. The vivacious style lends itself to those who dare to set trends.
Paying homage to the French Napoleonic Empire style period, Brissac features sumptuous plain and fine powder printed metallic velvets in a range of intricate patterns including toile de jouy florals, medallions and Greek and Roman inspired ornaments. Available in seven distinct but complementary designs, the colour palette reflects the Empire period, ranging from ecru and beige to pastel tints and shades of gold and brown.
Having enjoyed a successful year after its introduction, Essente has launched its newest series of curtain fabrics. The collection comprises products in contemporary chic style and colours. The new additions are a mixture of patterns, textures and basics in natural and accent colours.
David Harris, managing director of Kobe UK, said: “The May Design Series provides an important platform for us to showcase our Kobe and Essente brands.
“The popular and very exclusive Fabric Pavilion offers a leisurely and comfortable environment for potential new clients to view textiles.
“Last year, we made a number of new contacts in the high end residential and contract markets and we are looking forward to extending our reach even further at this year’s show.”
