In the newly launched The Standard, guests will be sleeping under a Wallace Sewell bedspread…
The Standard, renowned for their modern, stylish interior design contacted Wallace Sewell at the New York Now trade show back in January of 2018.
Chloe Osborne, from The Standard, had a clear idea of the concept of the blanket she desired. This concept was a natural fit with Wallace Sewell’s method of designing. Working to the specification given, a large-scale design was created with bold areas of colour which resembled a modernist painting.
The design started as simple paper sketches, before small samples were woven by hand to finalise the proportions of the product. Wallace Sewell’s ‘Lambswool Block’ collection of throws was selected as the fabric quality for the products.
The palette of colours if focused around pure reds and blues with features of violet and mint green. The hues overlay each other and blend into further shades.
Finally, the blankets were industrially woven in merino lambswool, at a mill located in Lancashire. The fabric was then finalised, pressed and sewn into blankets in Yorkshire.
