Tektura are launching over 20 new designs this October, Far Horizons/ Desert Craft/ Neo Vintage/ Slick Urban.
There’s a misty quality to the designs for Far Horizons evoking images of land and seascapes, sunsets and dawn. Shimmering and reflective surfaces with beams of blurred light are the inspiration behind these wall coverings, offered in the palest creams through to burnt orange, teal and black combined with gold.
Desert craft styles are inspired by global design, and village life. Materials traditionally used such as skins, feathers and grasses are reinterpreted into contemporary effects, with colours reflecting the surrounding landscapes.
We’re seeing historical elements and vintage craftsmanship finding their way into modern design. There’s a desire to embrace traditional decorative techniques such as hand-embroidery, gilding and weaving, and then re imagine and recreate these effects using modern materials.
Surfaces are smoother, sophisticated and refined. Small details emerge in patterns that would once have been hidden in rougher surfaces. Matt effects include subtle flickers of shine and seams of iridescent metal. Colours are muted – the palette focuses on warm and cool greys, soft silver, gold and bronze.
