Hooked on CLASSICS
Japan and the Bauhaus — just two influences in this season’s inspired new collection from Heal’s
The best, most enduring, design marries innovation and form, with an attention to detail that imbues even the most everyday item with timeless style. It’s an approach that has served Heal’s for over two centuries. Since opening its first shop in London in 1810, the interiors brand has been at the forefront of British design, whether that’s been introducing the UK public to the latest in European trends or championing both up-and-coming and established designers and pieces in its own collections.
Its offering for SS19 is no exception. Drawing on current trends for the kind of clean, lean aesthetic that are hallmarks of Japanese design, the ‘Eden’ bedroom collection is a case in point. Designed by Emile Jones, a self-proclaimed champion of ‘ honest’ design, the collection’s sleek, natural lines – surely likely to bring a sense of Zen-like calm to any bedroom – feature clever details (adjustable compartments, concealed, cut-out handles etc.) that are synonymous with a superior approach to design.
Elsewhere, Heal’s has teamed up with Matthew Hilton to launch ‘Rubin’, an exclusive collection of lanterns made with Japanese Mino-washi paper and a perfect complement to its own ‘ White Lights’ collection. And that’s not all: Heal’s was also the UK’S first champion of one of the most influential design movements of the 20th-century, Bauhaus, which is marking its centenary this year. To celebrate the landmark, Heal’s has launched a range inspired by the art school, from cushions (main image) to kitchenware. Discover them in-store and online today.
