Fans of Designers Guild wallpaper and fabrics will soon be able to furnish their homes from the company's full range of bed and bath linens, table accessories, children's products, upholstered furniture and, even, paint. On a recent visit downunder, Designers Guild's chief executive, Simon Jeffreys (top), announced plans to bring the Designers Guild Home Collection to New Zealand from April next year. Rather than import homewares from the UK, local licensees have been sought to manufacture products for both Australia and New Zealand. These products will initially appear on branded displays in department stores and home-ware retailers throughout the country, though a flagship concept store is a possibility.
Fresh bed, bath and table linen designs are released each season by Designers Guild to co-ordinate with its new fabric and wallpaper ranges. Also complementing Designers Guild fabrics and wallpapers is the company's new paint collection, consisting of 18 punchy shades developed especially by Tricia Guild in conjunction with the English paint company Farrow & Ball.
