EMULATE THE REFINED ELEGANCE OF THE WORLD’S FINEST HOTELS THIS SEASON BY MIXING RICH SHADES, STATEMENT SHAPES AND INDULGENT FINISHES
The new Urban Luxe trend is all about creating a space with the kind of timeless contemporary elegance you might find in a boutique design hotel or Michelin-starred restaurant. ‘It's designed for customers with an eye for detail,' explains Philippa Prinsloo, Partner & Design Manager Home, ‘with plenty of statement pieces that allow them to express themselves.’
The palette is refined, with burnt oranges, subtle nudes, rich plums and deep greens complemented by warm timbers and black accents. ‘This makes for a sophisticated and modern look,’ explains Philippa, ‘especially when balanced by reflections of metal and glass.’ Choose shapely vases with a metallic theme to display on your sideboard, line up sumptuous velvet cushions on a contrasting linen sofa, or be bold with a dramatic piece of art – it’s all about being disctinctive.
Philippa’s insider Urban Luxe style secret? ‘Fluted furniture remains on trend,’ she says. ‘Look for a hero piece like our Fluted Glass Cabinet, while the gorgeous Tilt Floor Lamp and Contour Chair (launching soon) – both designed in-house – are key pieces too.’
“Created for those with a passion for style, quality and innovation, Urban Luxe delivers a sophisticated, modern look”
