Design houses are encouraging the world of interiors to view textiles as works of art. Art educates, prompts emotion and embodies forms which can physically house us. In the broad sense of the word, ‘art’ describes the environments we create for ourselves; in the spaces we live in and the items we adorn them with.

Fascinated by the beauty of the Greek islands, the sun, the blue sea and the sky, Patrice Marraud des Grottes (Elitis Auteur) drew his inspiration from the name of the contemporary Greek poet Odysseas Elytis when naming his company, created in Toulouse in 1988.
Sine then, Elitis artists gather creative inspiration from all areas of the globe. In 2017, the inspiration for the latest collection has come from our very own Oceania!

Charley Noble was the sailors’ name for the galley chimney, which drew the heat from the galley stove and carried it safely above decks.
As you can imagine, it was a pretty important piece of equipment in the galley – for no-one wants hot coals or embers burning in the kitchen of a wooden ship!

Designmade Christchurch: The Last of the Summer Ice Cubes
It has taken us a little while – but the photos have come through! We’ve included a few of our favourite snaps from the night below!
Thanks again to everyone who made the night special. It was great to see all of our friends and have a great night out after a progressive five year move into the new location at 400 Barbadoes Street.
Hopefully we will have a few more soiree’s like so in the future…. watch this space!!

And on the 10th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
…interiors inspired by the warm, cosy and traditional festive feeling.
Christmas decorations usually come out of storage on the 1st of December and are sadly taken down only 25 days later. It’s a very short amount of time which means that decorations are often cheap, recyclable and don’t often make the statement in your home that you see in the Christmas movies.
