Back to Nature
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. noblesouls.com; timothyoulton.com
