A fabulous mix of botanical and ethnic prints, zingy embroideries and superb cut velvets comprise the newest Carnival Collection, available through innovators, St Leger & Viney. Carnival can provide either hot and vibrant or cool, contemporary interiors with a mix of stunning fabrics for every occasion.
Let’s take a closer look at what is on offer: ‘ORINOCO’ captures the spirit of the collection, a sensational painting of exotic pineapples, palm trees, flowers and birds with a vintage map of South America as a backdrop.
‘ROZEL’, taking its inspiration from a kilim rug, has two companions in ‘CARIBANA’ an appealing ikat motif and the soft geometric, ‘SALSA DIAMOND’. ‘SALSA SQUARE’, a small scale basket weave, works perfectly across the whole collection.
Punchy embroideries include the glorious ‘CALYPSO’ a lively patchwork composed of bright geometric patterns, ‘MONTSERRAT’ a superb large scale fantasy floral, ‘CARNIVAL GARDEN’ a very pretty ikat and ‘JAMBOREE’ with stunning splashes of embroidered colour.
Seven diverse velvets in glorious brights and tranquil neutrals, range from a rhythmic, broken flame stitch, ‘CARNIVAL CHEVRON’, and its companion ‘SAMBA STRIPE’ to the Art Deco inspired ‘JIVE’ and the extremely versatile ‘SALSA SPOT’.
Following the highly successful launch of the Baker Lifestyle ‘Notebooks’ another three have been added: ‘MONTPELLIER’ a truly opulent velvet in thirty two mouth-watering colours, ‘CADOGAN’ and ‘MELBURY’, one a beautiful tweed and the other a soft, marled chenille and ‘CARNIVAL PLAIN’, a very practical cotton mix. These stylish fabrics, multi-purpose and washable, work in harmony with all collections and are ideal for both domestic and contract use. Four smart trimmings are a terrific addition: ‘CARNIVAL BRAID’, an embroidered diamond trellis, ‘SAMBA BRAID’, a pretty picot, ‘SALSA BRAID’, a little cut velvet spot and ‘TANGO BRAID’, a dashing decorative stripe. Informal and accessible, this is a collection designed for spirited, modern living.
