Inspirations for the designs was found in the 16th century Chinoiserie and Japanese art, but also in Renaissance Italy and mid century European interior design. These influences created a juxtaposition of patterns, colours and textures. Influences showcases black and white designs, as they can be combined perfectly with bold colours and eccentric patterns.

Création Baumann presents functional textiles: GLARE & HEAT

GH banner blog 1

In a modern world, energy efficiency is one of the biggest challenges. Today, it's a matter of using and controlling day light to the best possible advantage to protext interiors against over-heating.

Their wide range of functional textiles, with a width of up to 300cm and different transparencies, looks, textures and colours, this entire collection is a milestone for Création Baumann. REFLECTACOUSTIC is a multi-talented fabric in aluminium-metallised yarn, which regulates not only light and heat, but also acoustics.

Blog 222F3 GH

This collection was developed to be as effective and flexible as necessary, to moderate direct light and climate in a room. They can be used as visual, glare, heat and UV protection all at once and improve the indoor climate. These fabrics pleasantly dim the light, providing an uninterrupted visual connection to the outside world, preventing glare, mirroring, and reflections in the presence of strong, direct fall of light. These fabrics create the perfect balance between the inside and outside, an ideal medium for the indoor-outdoor lifestyle we're so familiar with. 

"When the interior and exterior of an open architecture merge, textiles contribute to creating an atmosphere and a sense of well-being," Crèation Baumann.

Wondering how technology comes into play? Aluminium, steel, brass or copper are applied onto the fabrics back, and with an additional finish, the fabrics are more resistant against water stains, vapour, corrosion and contamination. Extensive testing and assessing of qualities and colours is performed in compliance with standardised procedures to ensure these fabrics are up to scratch.  

Roller blinds, panel curtains, vertical blinds, Roman blinders or curtain rails, wherever there is light Création Baumann offers a solution that'll fit your style and need.

New Élitis Collections

G&H banner blog 1.jpg

Élitis explore the patterns and textiles in the craftsmanship of their latest collections, Domino and Costa Verde.

Costa Verde combines ennobled raw materials and weaves abaca, wood, paper and silk thread with strips of mother-of-pearl and metallic thread. It embodies and unleashes hilly landscapes covered in virgin forest; forgotten fishing villages which rub shoulders with the vestiges of colonial splendour. 

One of the designs, Nacre Vichy (RM 675), is composed of 90% mother-of-pearl and 10% paper. With a wide-width, this Élitis wallpaper creates a presence within a room that is unlike any other. The mother-of-pearl offers a reflective surface, creating light in an otherwise possibly darker room (see above). Within this design there are seven designs, each with a unique colour composition and ideal for any interior setting. 

Elitis Collection 2018 (2).jpg

Within the Costa Verde collection, the materials used are all very obvious. The nature of their composition means that the wallpapers are interesting upon application. One of the most unique designs is Estancia (RM 679) which is composed of 47% multicoloured silk yarn, 38% paper and 15% nylon on a non-woven backing. The strands of silk warn add a texture to the wall unlike any that we've seen before. It's an interesting option and in situ beautiful and eye-catching (see below).

Estancia Élitis

If you're looking for something a little more natural in appearance, or lighter, the Domino collection revisits geometric and figurative motifs. This range is 100% woven, and shows an array of sketched assemblages on paper, printed to the sheet. 

A wild step away from the previously discussed wallpapers from Costa Verde, Domino is a more traditional wallpaper, European in style and design. Some are more colourful, whilst otherwise are subtle in their combination of geometric designs and hues (see below). 

Domino Collection Élitis These collections, and so many more are now available to borrow at G&H. Please contact our showroom if you require any more information or are interested in any specific designs.

The New Métaphores Collection

New catalogue 16

Créations Métaphores is a supplier of high-end soft furnishings, with three distinct and unique labels; Métaphores, Verel de Belval and Le Crin. Each brand idenitifies with a specific trend; Métaphores, represents contemporary inspiration, Verel de Belval the prestigious reputation of Lyon silk trades, and Le Crin, exceptional materials and expertise. Combining these three, offers a sophisticated range of complementary and innovative textiles and fabrics. It offers professionals, decorators, upholsterers or architects a wide array of possible style combinations; colour co-ordination, bold materials and patterns and a mix of classic and contemporary. 

This week, Greenfield & Hunter focus on the new Métaphores collection which features a mix of modern emotions and trends; placing sensuality, striking colours and noble materials to create heartfelt creations. As each collection is launched, Métaphores seeks to bring sensations, fabrics and colours into play, and boldy renew weaving techniques and associations of textures. 

New catalogue 3

In their new collection, Métaphores explore the effects of velvet, and the way in which it can be worked-on with a complex technique of embroidery (see above). Aloe is described as "a design in relief which wonderfully captures light". It's beautiful for chairs, and it sublimates their shapes, but also ideal for creating headboards and evoking those contemporary vibes. 

This interesting velvet isn't the only beautiful and intriguing new addition to the Métaphores range. The Luxor (see below), plays between mat and glossy, and is a double linen and silk weft with two cotton warps. The weaving technique gives an exceptional fluffiness and depth that magnifies the geometrical design. Partnered with bold colours and other patterns, this Luxor is the perfect combination of Orient and the West, with its refined contrasts. 

New catalogue (4).png

And just because patterns are always an exciting alternative, Métaphores explores the possibilities of Amazonie velvet and geometric designs in the print Khartoum. This new printing technique is reminiscent of marqueterie, "stimulating the imagination". Métaphores allows us to be inspired by the motives (pictured below), evoking the columns and rosettes of "the most beautiful Sudanese temples". 

New catalogue (5).png

These three new Métaphores fabrics aren't the only ones that have arrived at our Greenfield & Hunter showroom. We've got a whole new range available for ordering! Don't hesitate to contact our showroom and request your sample today!

Spotlight on: Ryan Genesin

New catalogue 10

Ryan Genesin, of Genesin Studios, is the designer responsible for some of Adelaide's most prominent and well-recognisable elements. Take for example the vivid front of Cibo on Hindley Street, those zebra stripes are a standout on the streetscape of the city.

Another one of Genesin's interesting collaborations is with restaurant, Antica Pizzeria e Cucina. Where with owner Anthony Crea, the pair created a modernist Italian restaurant inspired by the old gated laneways of Napoli which open up into hidden piazzas. When discussing this project, Genesin mentions the "inspiration was a response to the client's brief to create a modern Italian site for the city life". And with this in mind, Genesin certainly fulfilled the brief, with nominations for his work with Antica in both 2016 and 2017 from the Design Institute of Australia and the Australian Interior Design Awards. 

Most recently, in 2017, Genesin Studios, along with owner Ben Phan, was involved in the deck-out of the latest Vietnamese restaurant to open its doors in Adelaide, 'Viet Next Door'. Genesin drew inspiration from the Phan family's humble beginnings in Vietnam, where simple materials were used into practical details. When discussing the project, Ryan Genesin described "the need to express a new energy and a culinary maturity, at the same time offering a sense of the familiar, and thus creating an authentic cultural connection".

Ryan Genesin.jpg

Another feature of Genesin's work at 'Viet Next Door' worth mentioning is the consistent use of South Australian makers and materials. The custom-made brass and ceramic lights were designed and manufactured in collaboration with the Jam Factory Ceramicist Damon Moon, and Jeweller & Metalsmith Christian Hall. And the inlaid woven grass wallpaper, Stroheim Grass Weave (pictured below), sitting above the booths, that's from our team at Greenfield & Hunter!

Besides marvellous work throughout SA, Genesin Studio continues to thrive on the national design scene, with numerous awards over the years, and nine nominations in 2017 alone. 

With over 12 years industry experience, and numerous awards under his belt Ryan Genesin continues to maintain an active role in the Australian design scene. He often lectures and tutors at Swinburne University Melbourne and the University of South Australia, teaching Interior Architecture (in which he graduated from). 

As a business that's also actively involved in the South Australian design scene, we're thrilled to see one of our own doing so well on the national and international stage. We can't wait to see what else Ryan Genesin has in store.

Morris & Co: New Collection

Morris + Co Banner.jpg

William Morris (1834-1896) is considered one of the greatest designers and prominant figures within the Arts and Craft Movement. Besides his influence in the arts, Morris was also a well-regarded poet, artist, philosopher, typographer and political theorist. From his humble beginnings at the decorating business Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co, he provided beautiful, handcrafted products and furnishings for the home. 

Best known for his wallpaper and fabric design, Morris & Co became a prominant print house over the next 150 years; only experiencing turbulence during the First and Second World Wars. 

Today, Morris & Co are part of the Sanderson family, and continues to be a house hold name. 

Having recently released the fourth volume of the successful Archive series, Morris & Co have delved into the influences of Persian carpets and global textiles. As part of the series, Purleigh Weaves is a rich compendium of upholstery weight fabrics inspired by Morris' love of the East and their craftsmanship. The Archive IV also includes The Collector Fabrics which feature eight unique fabrics across a mix of qualities and production techniques and is perfectly complemented by the Archive IV wallpapers and the Purleigh Waves. The Collector Wallpapers include eight superlative wallpaper designs which are complemented again by the eight unique fabrics and five upholstery fabrics across a mix of qualities and production techniques.

All of those included in the Archive IV collections represent Morris' "passion for understanding the craftsmanship of the past and the East...the collection includes adaptations of his stunning hand knotted carpets as well as Eastern textiles, found complementing Morris fabrics and wallpapers in the interiors of Standen and Wightwick Manor".

de Le Cuona; Ethereal Elements

De la corna New Collection.jpg

A new collection of beautiful earth-toned fabrics are now available at our Frewville showroom, and are set to inspire your contemporary palette. 

From de Le Cuona, a new collection has arrived entitled Ethereal Elements which explores the beauty and rhythms of nature with a modern eye, evoking the elements and translating these into three new designs; Seahorse, Turtle Island and Shore.

Amongst the collection is Seahorse, a lightweight curtain fabric. This fabric has an allure, created by its looped surface, an allure achieved by the boucle yarn used to weave it. The light bounces off the fabric and plays on the loops to create the relaxed, ruffled texture. 

Shore is a versatile dense linen, which can be used for upholstery or curtaining and is available in a variety of natural and earthy tones. This fabric is woven with yarn in varied thicknesses and tones, with the texture reflecting the handwoven techniques. 

Turtle Island is as interesting as its name, and is a lightweight fabric perfect for curtaining. It's flowing nature is what makes this textile ideal for draping. Multiple colours are combined, woven together, to create a subtle pattern. 

These fabrics come from a wide range of de Le Cuona's textiles, all of which are harnessed and produced by the best International master weavers.
