When the Maison & Objet show holds sway in Paris from Friday January 23rd through Tuesday January 27th, nature will be blossoming in the product releases debuting in Hall 7 at Stand B22 where Robert Allen will unveil a vibrant Spring 2015 collection (the upholstered headboard on the bed above is so luscious covered in fabric). Luxury brand Beacon Hill will also have recent introductions on hand, which include the company’s popular silks from the Floating World Collection, an opulent line of fabrics celebrating Japonisme and Chinoiserie. The bold color combinations, captivating motifs, and exquisite constructions aims to transport those interacting with the sumptuous surfaces to exotic dreamscapes.
Robert Allen’s offerings include the company’s Interior Designer Color of the Year, Calypso Blue. Called Botanical Color, printed floral motifs and color blocks proliferate within this bountiful new line that captures the natural beauty of springtime.
Robert Allen Group CEO Philip H. Kowalczyk remarked about the presentation the companies will unveil, “Maison is the premier location for showcasing home trends for the coming year. As textile industry leaders, we’re proud to debut what we know are going to be top collections that will lead the way in interior design for 2015, along with a color that was voted on by over 1,500 leading interior designers.” Along with this hue, Calypso Blue; Spring Grass, a vigorous green; Sunray, a vibrant yellow; and Coral Reef, a luscious orange, will enliven the company’s booth.
The vice president of marketing at Robert Allen, Robert Nachman, and Beacon Hill’s operating vice president, Alexis Audette, will be both be attending M&O, and will be available for interviews by appointment on Friday. If you stop in and speak to them, Productrazzi would love to know what you thought about the fabrics, which looks so pert and pretty in the images, in person; and about their take on textiles in the coming year.
