Silk wall hanging – Retro Swimmers
Sometimes best ideas are the fortunate accident. Our clients ordered a wallpaper and during one of our consultations when we were discussing best colour matching, they told us that they dream to have something that during the day will be a piece of art on the wall, but during the night will turn into a window panel… it was the spark that started the creative fire.
We introduced our silk wall hangings in 2012 ( Silky cocoons ) and recently launched in September 2017 during 100% Design show in London.
Custom made panels with layers of canvas, soft padding, blackout fabric and decorative printed silk.
Size of the commissioned canvas was 200cm x 110cm – quite unusual aperture so we had to do everything ourselves. We sourced all materials locally; wood from our neighbour wood supplier, frame made by measure by craftsman and silk from our London supplier. After few prototypes we had the frame ready.
Printing on silk is always a great pleasure and stretching it over large canvas great challenge.
Final piece looks stunning! Our dear Clients loved it so much that they ordered another one, made of linen they once bought for another interior project.
Working on bespoke commissions it’s always a fabulous experience and great joy, especially when our clients have interesting ideas, which we can materialize and make them happy.
