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.

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.
