In a world where sustainability is paramount, Edmund Bell Fabrics proudly introduces the new RESET collection, embodying the brands commitment to environmental responsibility without compromising on quality or design. This innovative blackout fabric contains recycled yarns, a testament to its dedication to minimising its ecological footprint. The collection takes recycled yarns and transforms them into luxurious blackout fabrics that tell a story of renewal. Crafted with ingenuity and care, the fabrics radiate elegance while honouring the environment and symbolise a new era of conscious design at Edmund Bell where every thread can contribute to a greener future.

In addition, as the year unfolds, several design trends have emerged, reshaping the hospitality landscape and Edmund Bell has design solutions to incorporate these trends into a scheme whichever path it takes.

As bringing the outdoors in has transcended cliché and entered the realm of sophistication, incorporating blackout fabrics adorned with nature-inspired prints, lush foliage, intricate florals and serene landscapes, imbues spaces with a tranquil vitality that resonates with guests seeking refuge from the bustle of the world.

The timeless elegance of monochromatic palettes takes a dramatic turn with the interplay of textures. Pairing blackout fabrics with varying textures in the same colour family introduces depth and visual interest, creating a sense of opulence that’s both contemporary and classic. Moving from the monochromatic to minimalism, bold minimalism has evolved from stark simplicity to bold statements. The juxtaposition of clean lines and vibrant colours in blackout fabrics creates a dynamic visual impact that resonates with the modern traveller’s desire.
