Camira launches New Perspectives – a guide to inspire future interiors
Created in collaboration with Colour Hive, a global trend forecasting house, New Perspectives is an exploration by global textile manufacturer Camira into the influences that will inspire future interiors. Translating these driving forces into trends, tones and textures, the digital book brings the insight of the organization’s design team together with the manufacturing expertise which runs throughout its rich heritage.
A powerful tool for interior designers, New Perspectives covers three diverse design stories – The Master, a testament to craftsmanship, The Pioneer, a symbol of innovation, and The Collaborator, a celebration of the beauty that is possible when we work together – to provide an insight into the textiles and other material finishes that will be influential in interiors and specifications in the post- Covid world.
Lynn Kingdon, Head of Creative at Camira, explains the ethos behind New Perspectives, “From the colors we choose to the materials we use, the spaces we create are a reflection of the world around us, and in these times of uncertainty, we must work to build environments which offer comfort and safety, which stimulate and enthuse, and which are sustainably sourced.
This belief has inspired the themes within this book – a celebration of textile design, bursting with fabrics which evoke nostalgia, passion, and signal a future bright with opportunity.”
New Perspectives is now available globally, and digital copies can be requested from the Camira website here.
