Launched at Déco-Off in Paris over the weekend, British textile and wallpaper brand Scion have created a gorgeous, new, retro-contemporary range of printed fabrics, voiles and wallpapers named Lohko (named after the Finnish word for ‘blocks’), with an assertive, architectural feel.
Panels (L-R): Plexus 120497 £29.00/mtr, Sula 120471 £29.00/mtr, Lohko 111291 £49.00/roll, Nendo 131818 £36.00/mtr, Lohko 120485 £29.00/mtr, Malva 111312 £39.00/roll, Vector 120481 £29.00/mtr & Tetra 120494 £29.00/mtr Upholstery (L-R): Plains One 130458 £31.00/mtr, Plains Six 131236 £35.00/mtr Cushions: A selection from Lohko, at Scion.
The graphic Lohko collection features asymmetric motifs, bold slabs of colour and repeating, cut-out geometrics that defy the laws of gravity and proudly break the rules of design. Over-sized abstract boulder motifs, simplistic tulips and linear stem wallpapers are particularly exciting and I love the chic colour combinations used.

Bearing the distinctive style of Scion Designer Hannah Bowen (responsible for the playful and whimsical Guess Who? collection we featured on the blog last September), she has cleverly created energy and movement in her designs though the use of irregular patterns, confident freehand lines and self-assured colour combinations. She explains:
Channeling non-comformity, irrepressible energy and measured exuberance, the collection uses specially-developed slug-textured grounds, emphasising Lohko’s abstract quality and highlights repetition within the shapes, whilst its colour palette channels with a hint of black, and includes new tones for 2016 of Spice, Paprika and Blush.
