On Wednesday I had the pleasure of attending the fabulous launch of brand new British fabric and wallpaper brand, Scion and what a treat it was! For it's first venture into the UK market, the very talented design team behind the brand has created the Melinki collection of prints, weaves and wallpapers in a simply stunning colour palette that will appeal to their 'trend-savvy and fashion-aware customer.'
The official dictionary term for Scion is 'a young shoot or twig' or 'descendant of a notable family,' making it a wholly appropriate name for the latest offshoot from the luxury interior furnishings group, Walker Greenbank. This hugely successful and highly influential company encompasses some of the most respected brands in the market-William Morris & Co; Zoffany; Harlequin and Sanderson.
Commited to sustainability and care of the environment, Scion is set to make a big impression when it enters Heals and John Lewis in April 2012. Beautifully produced and yet keenly priced, with prices starting at £25 per metre for 100% cotton prints and £30 per roll for non-woven wallcoverings, the Melinki range will undoubtedly be a huge success and deservedly so!
