Internationally-renowned Irish designer Orla Kiely has joined forces with one of the UK’s foremost interiors companies, Harlequin, to create a stunning signature design range of wallpapers.
Since 1995, Orla Kiely is a brand that has become a byword for inspirational design, quality and visual innovation – a passion driven by Orla’s love of pattern, colour and texture. What started with a small bag and accessories collection has now grown spectacularly to include ready to wear fashion accessories, homeware, furniture, travel accessories, stationery, fragrance and now wallpapers.
The Orla Kiely collection is a distinct creation of graphic and stylised motifs, in clean repeat constructions – achieving a very modern style that also illustrates Orla’s love of nostalgic quality.
A testament to her flair and highly individual hand-writing, the Orla Kiely collection comprises fourteen existing and immediately recognisable designs, several of which have been reinterpreted or rescaled. Coloured with wallpaper in mind, they retain the distinctive Orla style.
They include evocatively named shades such as Bay Leaf, Warm Calico, Nettle and Bird’s Egg, which sit comfortable alongside Midnight Blue, Classic Red and Olive to form an eclectic palette of vibrant brights and pared back neutrals.
One of Orla Kiely’s greatest passions in life is pattern and colour, and the creation of this book of
wallpapers was an exciting one for her: “To me, the home is where we can truly express our style and personality, where we can be playful. Working with Harlequin was a great pleasure; combining our design aesthetic with their experience and knowledge to develop a book that I am very proud of.”
Claire Vallis, Design Director of Harlequin further expanded on what it’s been like to work on the Orla Kiely collection: “It’s both a delight and an honour to work with an icon of fashion design. Orla’s clear, unwavering vision and keen awareness of her brand identity has been truly inspirational. This, coupled with her invaluable input and meticulous attention to detail, has led to a fashion-led yet timeless wallpaper collection that adds an exciting and different dimension to the existing Harlequin range.”
