Poetry’s new homeware range of relaxed modern furniture, decor and textiles is an ode to the ‘art of living well’.
Poetry‘s new Poetry of Living Collection, which includes hard furnishings like tables, beds and cabinets as well as other large format soft upholstered furniture like sofas, armchairs and beds, has been carefully crafted with comfort, aesthetics, and individuality in mind.
The latest collection draws inspiration from far-off travels and diverse global traditions. The Poetry design team travelled the world seeking out artisans who share the brand’s commitment to quality and craftsmanship.
“In a world filled with mass-produced items, we believe in the importance of craftsmanship, the beauty of high-quality natural materials, the passing on of heritage and generational wisdom, and in celebrating the makers and artisans who bring these visions to life. This commitment extends to supporting craftsmanship communities both locally and abroad. With artisans, there is an energetic value in their creativity. Hands carving and then pressing block prints, working lathes to carve large shapes, and moulding clay. Natural raw materials are grown and nurtured, carved and shaped by hand,” notes the brand.
The Poetry design team looked at three design aesthetics for the new range:
- Modern Classic – a seamless blend of contemporary elements which bring a touch of elegance to a space.
- The Romantic – a modern take on traditional design.
- The Gypset – embraces artisanal craftsmanship and natural materials for a grounded, earthy setting.
Poetry has also expanded on its textile and kitchenware offering with this collection to include bedding, towels, scatters, crockery, bakeware and cutlery.
