How would you describe the style of the interior furniture and furnishings you have chosen? ‘Naturally, I have used Designers Guild thoughout the home, but in a very different way to our London home. I have used a different palette and the fabrics and furnishings focus more on linen, soft cotton and translucent violes. The style is relaxed; I would call it ‘modern country’ Tricia Guild.
We are delighted to introduce our new collections for Spring 2013.
Inspired by a moment in time that was London and New York in the 1920s the mood is one of optimism. A new frivolity and sparkling glamour that feels intoxicating, as characterised by F Scott Fitzgerald and his novel the Great Gatsby.
It is from this vivid setting that the spring collections draw their inspiration. The colour palette in entirely new-muted yet lively, soft, chalky tones of cloud, blossom, jade and mauve are accented with charcoal and indigo on pure sparkling white to herald a new mood.
As well as our stunning new prints for Spring we have fabulous Contarini wallcoverings, Padua weaves, a stunning tie-dye linen as well as a new DG Unlimited collection, ten new models of furniture, a new Contracts collection as well as fantastic accessories for the Spring season.
Following on from the success of the second fabric & wallpaper collection ‘Air de Paris’, as well as previous accessories collections, Carnet Andalous (Spring 2013) sees the continuation of the Lacroix journey and takes us to the heart of Al-Andalus, a land of exchange, culture and fusion.
With an eclectic mix of digital prints, cut velvets, woven jacquards and silk stripes this collection is filled with a dynamic approach and is testament to Christian Lacroix Maison.
William’s Astasia & Monsoreto collections for Spring are a continuation of his travels from previous collections of Exmere & Manton. A collection rich with textural and natural qualities, with designs inspired by a passion for preserving the artisan culture of weave.
Beautiful ikat style and block printed concepts combined with several substantial weaves in patterns from abstract checks to refined practical stripes all in array of organic feels from jute to tumbled linen.
Customers were presented with all the new Spring 2013 collections, fabulous new furniture and the full range of home accessories. Highlights included our Savine fabric with its unique tie-dye process that was featured heavily throughout the stand in gorgeous fuchsia, jade and grape tones, aswell as our stunning Padua ombre fabric- continuing the theme of our dip-dye signature Saraille fabric from Spring 2012.
The Seraphina collection with it’s new chalky palette was very well received too as was our new models of furniture.
Designers Guild will exhibit at the truly inspirational Parisian design trade show Maison et Objet, from the 18th-22nd January.

Queen Elizabeth II formally presented Tricia Guild with the OBE at a ceremony at
Buckingham Palace today.
Tricia was delighted to receive this most prestigious award for services to interior design.

It means so much to me, I am truly overwhelmed and thrilled in equal measure.
It was an incredibly special and memorable day."
