Trends | The Curator's House + Discovery

Welcome to a closer look at the FW23 Totter + Tumble Ikat collection.  


Inspired by textural Ikat woven textiles, our first Ikat designs, created in-house, have the aesthetic of an area rug alongside the practical features of a playmat. Because practical can be beautiful too.

Here we take a look at first reversible pairing of The Atlas and The Kasuri, exploring current interior styling trends they complement.

The Atlas is a relaxed, diamond Ikat design in soft, powder blue and warm white-gray tones. Inspired by global Ikat textiles, it is a practical alternative to an area rug in the home; a perfect fit for the Curator's House trend, a move on from the minimalist trend where family homes are curated with special pieces from travels as well as new heirlooms to pass down through the family.

Curiosity cabinets are ideal for displaying precious keepsakes, with wooden fronted or curtained cupboards to store away everyday essentials out of sight. Vintage sari fabric or hand blocked textiles can be framed as wall decor or used to upholster bespoke ottomans. Heirloom toys, such as rocking horses, are sourced from artisan markers.

The Kasuri design combines a gradient Ikat with deep indigo blue and almond tones to create a visually striking ombré effect. Inspired by traditional textiles practices, it's a beautiful baby mat to complement the Discovery trend, where a fresh fascination for ancient earth inspires home styling. 

Elements for the trend include totem-esque decorative accessories, sculptural furniture and patterned wallpaper or textiles inspired by Hieroglyphic or ancient symbols. Toys include simple stacking pebbles in sensory stimulating metallics and statement lighting.
