Dedar’s ‘Silkbird Jacquard’ fits in with a wider trend for chinoiserie, but the story behind its inspiration is a little more convoluted. The silk lampas pays homage to the antique coromandel screens – originally in fashion in the 17th and 18th centuries – with which Coco Chanel adorned her Paris apartment . It comes in colours that are typical of lacquers, precious stones, metals and oriental porcelain.‘Silkbird Jacquard’ won The World of Interiors’ Collection of the Year at Focus/16; the runners up were the Salveson Graham collection for David Seyfried Ltd; the David Oliver wallpaper collection for Schumacher at Turnell & Gigon; Pierre Frey’s Jean Lurçat collection; and Tissus d’Hélène’s Namay Samay collection.
