Introduce pure simplicity to the home as Heal’s furniture, lighting and home accessories are presented in a range of white and muted shades for Spring/Summer 2015.
Carmel Allen, Creative Director comments, “White is always a wonderful colour to work with – there’s a purity to it that everyone finds attractive. It’s the go-to colour for Spring; it’s clean, fresh and versatile enough to work in different room settings.
“We’ve also seen more and more white materials coming through, from natural linen and cotton, to solid marble and white ash. Pair white with a muted colour palette, or add textures and patterns like Art Deco”.
As part of Heal’s Elegant Purist collection fusing quality materials and understated design, the STUA Lau white stained ash dining table (from £1,695), designed by Jesús Gasca, features cleanly crafted joints and an uninterrupted, beautifully curved profile. With an ash veneer top and solid ash legs, the table makes a modern focal point for any dining area and can be teamed with the STUA Laclasica white stained ash chair (from £325).
The Gasca family has long been influenced by its relationship with the legendary designer Cristóbal Balenciaga who always focused on the detailing of his dresses on the back, without distracting from the most important part of a woman, her face. Gasca’s mother was a live mannequin for Balenciaga who would make his dresses on her body, and that’s why many STUA products designed by Gasca have the detail focused on the back, such as the Laclasica chair which has an elegant, three-dimensional curved backrest – reminiscent of a corset – that nods to the influence of Balenciaga.
The Lau table and Laclasica chair are available in natural, black stained and grey stained finishes; the former also comes with the option of two sizes.
