The London Collection

Decca brought colours to London Design Festival 2018 with The London Collection.

The London Collection is the latest addition to the Decca Home family of luxury brands that bring you timeless pieces of furniture for your home. The new 18-piece furniture collection designed by Robbie Llewellyn of Bert Frank, a British luxury lighting brand, echoes the industrial era and mid-century modern designs with a mixture of upholstered seating and case goods.

Same as Robbie's lighting designs, the furniture collection brings a sense of timelessness and mid-century style into modern interiors.

In the 1940's, many furniture designers used plywood as their main material, primarily due to the scarcity of materials after the Second World War. Later in the 50's, the development of new techniques led to the mass production of bent plywood, which then became signature designs of the mid-century modern era.

One of our favourite mid-century inspired pieces are the below Bent Plywood Nesting Tables from the Bolier Occasionals collection.

We can see the influence of the bent plywood designs on the Wrap Sofa and Wrap Chair from The London Collection.

The London Collection pieces are designed for modern living. A great example of Robbie's thoughtful design is the Platform Sofa with Veneered Back. This sofa is made using our softest filling on seat and back cushions to ensure comfort for sitting a few hours whilst watching your favourite TV show. That said, the main feature of this piece is the extended veneered platform that can be used as a side table on either side of the sofa.

Another great feature is the veneered back that can help use the sofa as a room divider.

You've probably noticed cocktail and drinks cabinets are making a return to the interior design world. In fact, according to the Eporta X WGSN Interior Trends Report 2017, taking the time to make a cocktail for yourself or your guests is synonymous with sophistication and self-care. That makes it one more reason why we love the Hoxton Drinks Cabinet.

The combination of bi-fold doors and illuminated interior allows you to display expensive bottles of booze to add wow-factor to your living room or lounge with minimal effort.

Each piece of The London Collection represents timeless design. Below is an image of the various components of the Shoreditch Side Table, each of them helps create a beautiful piece of artwork.
