Summer Lovin'


It's finally beginning to look like summer again in London, with bright blue skies and sunshine making a welcome appearance! Here at Savoir, we make beds in a huge range of fabrics, in a variety of beautiful bright colours - with this in mind, here are our best (very colourful!) summer-styled designs!


Mary

Designed by Mary Fox Linton, this bright, retro styled print is perfect for the summer. The burnt orange looks fabulous with the more subtle and muted beige tone!

Claudia

One of our most recent designs, this bright canary yellow Claudia bed positively screams sunshine! How beautiful is the soft dove grey against the bright daffodil colour?
Elliot
A more wacky design, this neon green Elliot bed looks great with its slender base and thin legs. We think this would look great with some brightly coloured linens!
Cressida

We love this Cressida design, with its smooth lines and raspberry pink, its a more subtle option for the season!

Savoir Beds Paris - new imagery!



As you may now know, we've opened our beautiful new showroom in Paris. Based in the heart of Paris’s luxurious shopping district. Set on the exclusive rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, the new store is located on one of the most sought after streets in the capital!

As you will see in these fabulous new photographs of the space, the boutique dates back to the mid-19th century and spans across two floors - refurbished with its’ stunning original features intact.


These renovations include beautiful, ornate ceiling mouldings and the repair of a sweeping wrought iron suspended staircase (below) which acts as a main feature in the store.




What do you think of our new home? If you are in Paris and would like to visit, we are on: 164 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré75008 Paris. Or, give Laila, our showroom manager a call on: + 33 (0)1 44 43 83 65.

Decorex 2015

The poster for this year's Decorex
  
It's not long now until Decorex 2015! Renowned for being THE event to discover the very best, and most coveted products from its unrivaled collection of 400 hand-selected exhibitors; including us!

With a rich heritage of 38 years, Decorex’s long standing reputation has proven the test of time; growing and evolving to remain exciting and innovative – and 2015 is rumored to be no different!

Each year Decorex selects a theme and creative for the show and website, to tie in with a current issue or trend within the luxury interiors industry. They say, "this year is no exception with questions around the future of luxury currently at the forefront of the industry, demonstrated by the V&A's latest exhibition - What is Luxury."

Taking place at the start of the London Design Festival, Decorex will once again be held in the grounds of Syon House - the perfect backdrop to discover the future of luxury design.

Here at Savoir, we're planning a very special stand for this year's event. Showcasing a strikingly stark stand, we are ready to play with clever lighting and optical illusions and contrast a seemingly minimal backdrop with the luxury and detail of our beds. Presenting two new and very different designs, we are ready to stun visitors!

Running from 20 - 23 September 2015, we'd love to see you at the event! We really enjoyed Decorex 2014 and are looking forward to seeing some new, and familiar, faces again this year.
