First launched for Autumn/Winter 2014, the Industrial Chic collection from Heal’s moves on from the raw finishes of the last few years; instead it highlights strong lines and modern materials of the rough-luxe look, while adding refinement to the finish. For Spring/Summer 2015, Heal’s has introduced new pieces to the collection, including the Bristol upholstery range and new additions to its best selling Brunel range.
A contemporary take on the traditional club sofa, Bristol includes a large sofa (£2795) and an armchair (£1595). The range is made in Italy and features a geometric form, highlighted by its handmade, angular steel frame. Bristol is upholstered in soft Buffalo leather in caramel hues which will develop a distinctive patina over the years.
Continuing the industrial look is Brunel designed by Rob Scarlett exclusively for Heal’s. The London-based designer takes inspiration from Heal’s archive pieces, including a space-saving leaning storage unit designed by Robin Day and Clive Latimer in 1948. Crafted from solid American oak and steel, Brunel offers multi-functionality and easy assembly. Brunel is ideal for design savvy city dwellers who are short on space and accessibility but big on style.
The new pieces added to the Brunel collection for 2015 include a sideboard and a desk. The sideboard (£695) is a minimally styled unit with five drawers and two doors, providing ample storage space for everyday needs, while the desk (£495) offers a simple home office solution with two drawers and a risen platform that will sit comfortably in the living room or bedroom. Brunel features powder-coated steel legs and handle details, adding a subtle, contemporary touch to its overall look.
