It’s been a global icon in homewares for 200 years so when you get into bed with the best of British you know it’s a momentous occasion. Royal Doulton has itself ‘got into bed’ with Legend Australia, leading bedlinen specialists, to design a unique collection. And not a Union Jack in sight!
Mix, match, & define your sleeping space with stylish, London-inspired linen & cushions designed by a collaboration of eclectic designers and artists working with Royal Doulton and Legend Australia. Distinctive and fashionable, the overall colour palette is crisp white, navy and charcoal with highlights of red, pewter and pops of primaries.
Drawing inspiration from the folk drawings in children’s books, elements of the Pop Art movement and a modern look at classic herringbone, many of the designs work with together. For example, I love the Fable Navy in crisp white, navy and red drawing inspiration from London fold art motifs. I would work these back with the Archer sheet set, and its striking herringbone, plus the Gorman textural matelassé quilt cover, pillowcases and long cushion.
Loft apartments and warehouse style living will welcome the sophisticated cool of Elton Indigo which features intricate geometrics in a beautiful palette of navy and silver grey that transition into a muted mosaic on the reverse side of the quilt. Team with the Pippa chunky knit throw in navy and the Harper brushed velvet and metal studded cushions for the ultimate winter cocoon.
Tate Navy, inspired by the bold colour exploration of the Pop Art Movement, combines an eye-popping, multi-coloured print with the neutral shades of linen and black to create a sophisticated, edgy look for the contemporary best of British home. The quilt cover in crisp white features coloured insets of the patterned fabric; a clever way of introducing vibrancy without overstatement.
When it comes to the best of British, the quality and finish is unequalled, as is the Royal Doulton heritage. Decorative quilt covers are 100% cotton sateen while the Archer collection is 100% Egyptian cotton sateen with a 400 thread count. Features and detailing of the bedlinen include cotton embroidery and self-coloured or contrasting single and double flanges.
Cushions within the range are in a selection of 100% cotton slub, brushed velvet or 100% cotton canvas – some feature cord piping or hand embroidered beading. There are also a chunky knit throw and plush 100% combed cotton towel.
