What is fascinating to us as creatives, is that this fabric has many unusual qualities. Obviously the stand-out graphics, but even more useful to us (as designers that tend to use a lot of colour) is the complex tonal layering in each version, making it a great ‘linking’ fabric for any scheme.
Knowing how much we adored it, Michael Silver at Christopher Farr asked us to create a new colour way for Carnival. Albeit daunted: what an iconic design to play with, and what esteemed design company to keep, we ended up creating three new colour ways with teals, dusky pinks, corals and yellow.
We knew when we began collaborating together that Christopher Farr and Turner Pocock both shared a delight of colour and pattern. What became more evident as time progressed, was that both studios also take great pride in the process of creation too: the discussions, the detail, the mistakes that become better than the original idea. In short: the craft.
The new colourways were immediately used and have become new staples in the Turner Pocock oeuvre.
