Anthology 04 wallcoverings
An Abundance of Lustrous Texture from Anthology
In just two years, Anthology has proved itself an exciting and successful brand offering ground-breaking finishes, innovative textures and complex backgrounds. Its international appeal brings added glamour, style and definition to both contemporary contract and domestic interiors.
The Anthology studio has produced 04, a collection of wallcoverings inspired by the concept of construction and deconstruction of woven fabrics. According to designer Louise Draper: “Anthology 04 examines in microscopic detail elements of paper, threads and pleats, producing a cohesive range of wallcoverings that will grace the most design-conscious hotels and style-aware homes around the world.”
Comprising eight designs over 50 wide-width wallcoverings, Anthology 04 uses the most technically-advanced machines and state-of – the-art production methods, resulting in avant-garde, beguiling finishes, in a spectrum of evocative shades.
CAZIMI: a textural oval shape against a fibre-effect ground, the design is picked out in two-colour inks and beaded between the outlines.
CILIUM: the original ‘artwork’ was folded and creased tissue paper, arranged into blocks to create a build-up of translucent layers on a mica and metallic ground. The non-woven, backed vinyl has been embossed to highlight the mica shimmer.
ODOKO: resembling a digital photograph of crumpled silk against a dappled, ponyskin-effect textured ground.
OLON: the use of mica, metallics and iridescence creates the illusion of filaments trapped in fabric, with added depth being achieved through the use of accenting shadows.
PUMICE: A play on light and shade, using opaque, metallic and mica inks to create matt and glistening surfaces with the appearance of natural stone.
TALI: silhouetted branches, depicted in a highly atmospheric way, with depth of colour built up then accented with liberal amounts of subtle glitter to produce a glorious lustre.
VISO: the effect of trapped threads is created by the combination of translucent ink tinting a foil background, with opaque ink picking out the design.
YUTI: an atmospheric effect, resembling a distressed, shadowy, watermarked wall.
The collection enjoys a stunning palette of tones, judiciously accented with sparkle, beading, metallic and mica: old gold, pebble and ash; linen, jute and stone: bronze, steel and zinc; old rose, almond and bitter chocolate; graphite, jet and amethyst.
Anthology 04 is available via a network of stockists both nationally and internationally.
