Author: London-based furniture store Heals has released its first fabric collection since the 1970s, and some our favourite illustrators and designers from Outline Artists have created patterns for it.
Hvass&Hannibal, Malika Favre and Petra Börner have produced some particularly striking prints that draw on natural themes for Heals first fabric collection in almost 40 years – though the looks range from Malika’s stylised graphics to Petra’s vintage-feeling bold blocks of colour to H&H’s delicate fronds.
Fabric featuring the patterns costs £45 a metre, and they’re also available on the Heals 1810 line of homewares (named after the year the company was founded). This includes the cushions, round and tea trays, and notebooks shown here – plus aprons and oven gloves.
The illustrators were commissioned through Outline Artists.
The fabric collection also includes new designs by Cressida Bell, Emily Patrick, Paul Vogel, Ottilie Stevenson, and archive patterns from Zandra Rhodes and Diana Bloomfield.
