Latest launches, luxurious new lines and eye-catching trends
OH SO PRETTY
Luxe tent maker, Raj Tent Club has teamed up with the V&A to bring us a timely collection of garden tents, pergolas, deckchairs, sunshades and cushions featuring two of the museum’s archival patterns, Clematis and Chinoiserie. Perfect for long, lazy summer soirées, the pieces are unapologetically pretty, celebrating ﬂ ounces and ﬂ orals. All that’s missing is great company and a pitcher of Pimm’s.

A FRESH LICK
Artisanal paint brand Atelier Ellis adds two summery shades to its existing collection of intensely pigmented, handmade, natural, and breathable paints. “The colours of mid-summer are generous, optimistic and sensorial,” says founder Cassandra Ellis. “We want to celebrate this time of year and the colour palette it offers through two special colours. Ice Cream captures the ﬂeeting feeling of summer, while Coming Up Roses reminds us of time passing”.

A bold stripe is never not stylish – just ask Colours of Arley. The fabric brand’s raison d’être is vibrant parallel lines. Excitingly, they’ve just launched their ﬁ rst vintage drop of beautifully made, sculptural but time-worn furniture, in collaboration with designer and journalist, Jess Alavi-Ellis. Expect lovingly restored and reupholstered pieces across dining chairs, stools, lighting, statement armchairs, and more.
