HOME TEXTILES - scion ss17

Scion’s latest release for Spring Summer 2017 is a Scandinavian style collection called Noukku. Named after a species of Finnish wildflower, Noukku is totally in tune with the life-affirming ‘Hygge’ trend and is a versatile, spontaneous collection that invigorates your senses and encourages you to step away from your busy lifestyle. Inspired by the great outdoors, and bringing a feeling of artisan design into the modern-day home, Noukku comprises of seven fabric motifs in a mix of prints combined with embroidery and crewel work. There are also nine coordinating wallpaper designs, and a complementary book of textured weaves. Scion Designer Hannah Bowen wanted to create an approachable collection oozing with personality. The designs originated as collages, with lots of ‘cutting and sticking’ to create the bold graphics. You can see the whole range online here and in this post we start with the fabrics...

Followed by Scion's Noukku wallpapers.....

Not a part of Noukku but I couldn't resist posting this super striking bedlinen from Scion called 'Sula' which is now in stores.

And finally in our Scion showcase we have Modul cushions and Lohko bedlinen.
