Home retailers have been on a British design kick lately. First Crate and Barrel partnered with the super talented British furniture designer Bethan Gray. Now, CB2 debuts an accessory and furniture collection with the peacock of British fashion, Matthew Williamson. His daring often jungle-inspired prints filled with palm leaves and flamingos add a burst of jolly color and pattern which we saw in his ebullient Osborne and Little fabrics and wallpapers, and his CB2 line has the same joy factor. Influenced by the natural world in technicolor--rainbows, peacock feathers and butterflies-- his decorative accessories and furniture pieces have classic British quirk. Take a look at some of my favorite pieces.
Her Williamson sits on the his Avec Apartment Sofa covered in Mother Amazon, a wild kaleidoscopic print. I like how the sofa looks like it is floating, with a simple brass leg.
Small brass finished bunching side tables resemble the textured rings on a tree and the other is done in brightly colored enamel to resemble sliced agate
This (kind of) crazy printed Peacock Hearts Pillow has tassels which I love, and an Hermes scarf print style, which I also love.
When would i ever say no to a palm tree candlestick? At $49.95 each, this glossy Gold Taper Candle Holder had me at hello.
