Pia Benham, Head of Fabrics and Design says, “The main inspiration for the new Heal’s 1810 collection is summer gardens interpreted in a fresh, colourful and painterly style. We wanted to keep lots of movement and detail within the designs, and by working with the new artists, we allow their personal style to shine though within the designs, and help us create a bold and individual collection.”

French-born Claire de Quénetain, an MA in Printed Textiles, is known for her expression of marks and forms through paintings and drawings. De Quénetain’s new design for Heal’s 1810, Le Jardin D’ete, depicts a hand-drawn floral pattern reflecting the artist’s personal passion for the outdoors. With a painterly effect, the design is digitally printed onto fabrics, cushions, kitchen textiles, trays and hand-painted onto tableware. Prices start from £10. London-based duo Danny Augustine and Adam Bridgland, also with MA’s in Fine Art Printmaking, first collaborated on an exhibition in May 2014. Together, they created a collection of large mono print works exploring themes of lust and love, by painting directly onto the screen print mesh before printing. The duo has created an exclusive series of abstract, hand-painted floral prints which spans both the mediums of print and painting. As the artists paint directly onto the screen mesh, there is only one original for each design created. Highlighted by their bright colour palette, the exclusive prints by Augustine and Bridgland are available on a selection of cushions for Heal’s 1810 (from £45).
