Harlequin Introduce New Collection ‘Jardin Bohéme’
The collection comprises of printed fabrics, embroideries and a mix of the two, as well as weaves and wallpapers. Harlequin’s collection is fully available to the contract market. Jardin Bohéme will be launched in Spring 2014.
The inspiration for Jardin Bohéme is very much based on the bohemian lifestyle, with the prints being youthful and uplifting.
All designs were originally drawn by Harlequin Studio’s Becky Brown, who employed time-old techniques such as stamp-making, potato-prints and lino cuts to achieve the desired boho effect.
Becky Brown states “I wanted to capture the free-spirited, folkloric, ageless elements and going back to basics, such as mark-making and painting freely with strong brushstrokes, enabled me to create these relaxed, hand-drawn motifs. I was particularly passionate about using surface-printing for many of the wallpapers too: this gives depth of colour, detail and texture as well as the deliciously hand-painted, not-quite-dry appearance which embodies the collection.”
