We asked the company director, Djaimi Thornhill for insight into the latest trends in colour and print for the season before she shows the range at Decoration + Design from July 21-24 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
You have a wide range of designer styles, can you talk us through the latest looks/trends in French linens?
From Paris designer Sonia Rykiel this year we’ve seen highlights of technically complex stylized animal patterns, and also the use of skin tone palettes, the colours that you may see at a make-up counter. Sonia Rykiel Maison always presents something new, something no-one else is doing. But if past is prologue, everyone else will be doing something similar soon.
From traditional manufacturers, we’re finding a predominance of subtle and natural colours, – greys in all shades, also linen tones, but with a reserve of beauty in the details.
It’s when you get closer that you see where the designers have put their work. It is in the accumulation of these seemingly minor elements that one creates an aesthetic space that feels like home.
We’re also seeing stripes, often two colours; strong colours – red, also blue – are in highlights, and often paired with a neutral base or black base.
What are the new products/ranges you plan to show at the D+D show?
It’s a surprise, but let’s just say that we’ve got some new products from some very old companies.
What do you hope to achieve at the show?
We haven’t exhibited at the D+D show before, so we’re really looking forward to meeting your attendees, and we certainly hope we can help them with something new, something interesting.
What is your product’s point of difference? What gap in the market do you fill?
With Linens of Style, our goal is to bring European products of elegance and quality, with an American business approach to customer service, into the Australian market.
Our secret is that we love our products and helping people discover them. There is always demand for those who love what they do.
