Colour in context, August 2013


Colour in context for August: Garnet

In Mix Trends issue 24, Spring Summer 2013, Garnet is a rich, heavily pigmented terracotta, part of the book’s Precious trend, inspired by our collective love affair with the precious stone but referencing the earth from which these stones are sourced. This particular shade, reminiscent of iron rich earth, has a particular affinity with leather and upholstery, although it is seen in carpets too. In Mix magazine issue 33 we have identified it as one of the key colour micro-trends for this summer. And it looks like the shade will be moving on into the latter half of the year. We love these Jack stools, part of the Lostine collection which SCP will be showing during the London Design Festival. Lostine is a home furnishings design company and manufacturer based in Philadelphia, makers of home furnishings that are useful, elemental and timeless This particular shade proves to be all of these things.
