Harrods Panel Talk with Nicky Haslam

If you follow us over on Twitter or Instagram you will have noticed that a couple of weeks back we were lucky enough to take part in an exclusive Harrods event in conjunction with the London Design Festival. The event followed a design trail through the home department with a pit stop at our fabulous showroom to see the striking Nicky Haslam bed. Nicky was on hand to talk guests through his design concept and later in the night took part in a panel talk presented by Livingect's editor; Suzanne Imre on design. As always Nicky was on top form!

Decorex Part 2

We hope you enjoyed our Decorex Part 1 post earlier this week! Here’s the final roundup of our stand:

To illustrate the different layers of our beds and the many processes involved in production we brought along our craft display bed.

 Our bespoke pet bed certainly was the talk of the town! This piece is the perfect gift for your furry friend. It comes upholstered in Larsen Baytown fabric with cosy Sherpa fleece machine washable cushions. Savoir’s office dog Spooky has tried and tested it, in terms of comfort and style it’s getting big thumbs up!

To top off our main stand we had some hand crocheted lighting from the talented designer Naomi Paul. The new cave lights tied together the Christophe Delcourt and Savoy Anniversary beds perfectly. Naomi even stopped by to give her seal of approval for not just her lights but the Christophe Delcourt bed which has been firmly added to her Christmas list!

 We are lucky enough to have a great presence at Decorex this year with another display stand on B74. Our designers created a room centred around our Virgina White bed which has been a real success- this contemporary bed is upholstered in striking green horsehair from John Boyd Textiles accompanied by vibrant hand silk screen printed cushions.

 Thanks to all that stopped by our stands.

Decorex Part 1

For the past few months we have been eagerly anticipating and preparing for this year’s Decorex in the beautiful grounds of Syon House. To launch our stand last Sunday we hosted an intimate drinks reception for our partners in trade, interior design contacts and press. 

On our main stand, C65 we showcased our most recent designer collaboration with the world renowned French designer; Christophe Delcourt. As you can see the bed takes a new design direction for us, it’s simple and Nordic style, upholstered in off-white linen with slim angled legs to give the bed a floating effect. The bed was a real hit with industry influencers!  

 To contrast the Christophe Delcourt design we also presented our art deco style Savoy 125th Anniversary Bed. Inspired by the 1920’s and 30s, the heyday of glamour, jazz and film stars at The Savoy, this bed celebrates a momentous anniversary for the British institution. Upholstered in luxurious metallic fabric which highlights the sharp angles, this bed is a real statement.


Check back later in the week for Part 2

Introducing the Ian Bed by Christophe Delcourt

"British luxury at it's finest- Savoir Beds collaborates with Christophe Delcourt to launch a new bed  on the 21st September at Decorex trade fair- London"

Savoir Beds are delighted to announce the upcoming showcase of their latest collaboration with world-renowned French designer, Christophe Delcourt whose creations exhibit a wonderful combination of elegant lines and raw materials.

The Christophe collaboration marks one of the hand-picked designers Savoir has teamed up with this year to create an inspired and innovative range of Savoir beds.  The list of designers boast Nicky Haslam, Virginia White, Jane Churchill and Mary Fox Linton. This line of designer collaborations are an addition to Savoir’s existing range of headboards as managing director Alistair Hughes explains, “We wanted to spark things up a bit, to inspire our customers and show them what could be done.”

The Ian bed features a slim-line base, a new design direction for Savoir Beds, which combines both comfort with the beauty of slender, modern proportions.  This Nordic-style, simple, clean base and headboard are upholstered in off-white linen with slim-angled steel legs in bronze finish to give the bed a floating effect.  

The collaborative Ian bed will be showcased on Savoir's stand (C65) at Decorex, London, September 21-24th.  The Ian bed is a one of a kind piece which can be recreated with Savoir’s showroom teams for £20,290.

Combat 'Stresstember' with Savoir

The Sleep Council has branded September ‘Stresstember’, as children return to school and adults to work, leaving summer well and truly behind, understandably causing stress levels to increase. The ‘stresscycle’ for those studied, starts with the end of the summer holidays, continuing with the clocks going back in October, and peaking with the gloomy winter weather and the panic of Christmas in December.

A Sleep Council study also found that 72% of people say they suffer from sleep problems when stressed. Here at Savoir we fully understand the importance of a good night’s sleep- in their efforts to offer guests the best-possible sleep, the founders of London's prestigious Savoy Hotel left no mattress unturned and looked to Savoir to produce the finest, most comfortable beds way back in 1905. We still supply The Savoy with our luxury beds to this day; in fact our beds are so comfortable that guests often have to leave with them!

We use the best natural and breathable materials like top quality South American horse hair and the softest Mongolian cashmere to make our mattresses, headboards and toppers. This not only ensures that our environmentally friendly product lasts the test of time, but it regulates body temperature to prevent restlessness and ensure the deepest REM sleep.

The Savoy Anniversary Bed
 Supported by The Stress Management Society, the ‘Stresstember’ study aims to raise awareness of the importance of a good night’s sleep to health and wellbeing.

At Savoir our beds are bespoke in every way, visit one of our showrooms and make an appointment with our dedicated teams to design the bed that will guarantee you the best night’s sleep.
