Mod­ern Liv­ing

The new range of ab­stract, ar­chi­tec­tural prints from Scion are de­signed to work to­gether beau­ti­fully and will add a shot of style to any space


Ev­ery savvy in­te­rior de­signer knows that the eas­i­est way to ex­press your­self is to keep back­drops über-plain and add colour, pat­tern and shape the sim­ple way – with at­ten­tion-grab­bing fab­rics and wall cov­er­ings. Any­one look­ing to in­ject an easy shot of con­tem­po­rary chic into their home – at an ac­ces­si­ble price – should look no fur­ther than Scion wall­pa­per and fab­ric de­signs.

A young and uniquely Bri­tish brand, Scion’s lat­est range de­fines the term ‘retro con­tem­po­rary’. With wall­pa­pers, fab­rics, voiles and cush­ions, Scion’s ab­stract de­signs add a mod­ern cut­ting edge to cool, sparse in­te­ri­ors and a dash of en­ergy and in­spi­ra­tion.

This sea­son, its new range is Lohko. Named af­ter the Fin­nish word for ‘blocks’, it was cre­ated by Scion de­signer Han­nah Bowen, who wanted, she says, to create some­thing clean and con­tem­po­rary us­ing her dis­tinc­tive style hall­marks – bold use of colour and shapes. ‘The col­lec­tion cen­tres on graphic modernist mo­tifs,’ says Bowen, ‘and is formed from frac­tured geo­met­rics and de­con­structed, over­laid shapes.’ It pays homage – and is in­spired by – both mid-cen­tury archival prints and mod­ern Scan­di­na­vian de­sign (but fab­rics and wall­pa­pers are made and man­u­fac­tured in the UK).

De­sign mo­tifs rest on a slub-tex­tured back­ground and in­clude clever rep­e­ti­tions of tri­an­gles, chevrons, squig­gles, tulip shapes and a dis­tinc­tive boul­der mo­tif, with all the pat­terns – whether on fab­ric or wall cov­er­ings – able to be mixed and matched to create your own sig­na­ture look. So dis­cover Scion – and add an in­stant and dis­tinc­tively mod­ern twist to your space.
