Ti­mothy Oul­ton made its de­but at Mi­lan De­sign Week with an in­trigu­ing in­stal­la­tion in Br­era that pro­vided vis­i­tors with a unique per­spec­tive on China. A video ti­tled Indigo Land gave vis­i­tors a glimpse of how women in ru­ral China use tra­di­tional, all-nat­u­ral meth­ods to pro­duce indigo dye, one of the main colours for the brand’s new No­ble Souls range. Then vis­i­tors were able to ex­pe­ri­ence the No­ble Souls so­fas, which are filled with goose down and take your breath away as you sink into them, with the goose down gen­tly cradling your body. Avail­able in three mod­els with dif­fer­ent lev­els of sup­port—Realm, Nest and Oa­sis—the so­fas are cov­ered in nat­u­ral linen coloured with all-nat­u­ral veg­etable dyes in calm­ing shades of blue and green.

The No­ble Souls col­lec­tion also in­cludes the English Beam cof­fee and side ta­bles made from re­claimed tim­ber—solid pieces of wood that were formerly the pil­lars and beams in barns, halls and schools and which were sourced from build­ing sites across the UK. The pieces of wood were care­fully se­lected and all the nails were re­moved by hand. The re­sult is cof­fee ta­bles with a rus­tic tex­ture and lovely patina of age. no­ble­; tim­o­th­y­oul­
