Genevieve Bennett for John Lewis: SS17

John Lewis is delighted to announce its latest exclusive collection from celebrated British designer, Genevieve Bennett.

Building on the success of Genevieve’s furnishing fabrics, rugs, wallpaper and soft furnishings, this season sees the introduction of Genevieve’s first bed linen and towelling collection.

With two beautiful and timeless ranges, Deco Palm and Deco Flower, Genevieve continues to explore how technique and pattern can be subtly combined to create sumptuous texture and intriguing surface effects.

Genevieve Bennett comments:Deco Palm is inspired by the bold elegance of Art Deco motifs, translated into a rich jacquard weave; it is beautifully soft and resonates understated luxury. Deco Flower comprises precise graphic geometry that is worked into indulgent embroidered bed linen for a contemporary finish.

“I was particularly pleased to have the opportunity to expand our existing collection of rugs with John Lewis. Working with master craftsmen in India, I was drawn to the possibilities for sculptural relief through a specific hand carving technique.  Here the wool is sculpted and carved with relief pattern, much in the same way I work with leather for my own collection of one off pieces, which is exciting.”

Philippa Prinsloo, Design Manager Home comments:
“Bedding and bathroom textiles are the perfect addition to Genevieve’s collection. Inspired by vintage textiles from the Art Deco period, there is a real sense of calm and balance to these beautiful and refined patterns. 

The John Lewis Design Collective is a series of exclusive collaborations with some of the best design talent from the UK and beyond. The Genevieve Bennett for John Lewis collection will launch in April 2017 and will be available in all stores and online.
