A Very Merry Christmas from Jenny Blanc…

Jenny Blanc

Planning the Christmas window at our West London showroom is one of the tasks I look forward to each year with great anticipation – whether based around a traditional Christmas tree or something more unusual, it’s the perfect opportunity to combine beautiful fabrics and home furnishings alongside gifts and smaller decorations to create a real feast for the eyes! This year in particular I felt the need to bring a touch of Christmas magic so am very happy to present our ‘Christmas angel’ to you today!

 

Jenny Blanc - London Showroom Christmas Window DisplayThe beautiful sheer fabric by Sahco which forms the body of our angel caught my eye because of the clever use of matt sequins which add depth and interest without being too glitzy. The wallpaper behind is by Harlequin and is from their latest collection. Unusual wallpapers, particularly those incorporating metallic elements, were one of the most interesting trends to gain momentum this year – we have some fantastic new additions to our samples library at the West London showroom which are already proving popular. Teal was another strong trend in 2016 and was the perfect choice for this year’s window – combined with warm metallics, glassware and natural textures including faux fur and branches it feels both glamorous and festive.

In store we have an incredible selection of decorations, perfect for adding that last minute finishing touch to your home. Home fragrance by Aromatique and Castelbel are perfect for setting the scene for festive entertaining whilst an original selection of baubles and ornaments will trim the tree wonderfully!

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We look forward to welcoming you in 2017 with our sale, starting on Saturday 7th January at our West London Showroom.

 

Oriental influences at our West London showroom this autumn…

Jenny Blanc - Showroom London at Autumn Time

This autumn we have taken inspiration from a beautiful pair of antique oriental lamps for our autumn/winter window display. The lamps have a ceramic bases in stunning cerulean blue with burnished gold hand painted cherry blossom branches. These are complemented by bespoke knife pleat shades with a silk wrapped bead trim. This gorgeous colour combination is perfect for this time of year in the UK as temperatures begin to drop and we look to our interiors for warmth, comfort and a touch of luxury. Blue and burnished gold combined with other earth colours form the basis of this year’s design which includes an unusual textured wallcovering by Arte, stunning eglomise mirror and a contemporary, oriental style console table.

The Jenny Blanc tub chair is one of the most popular and versatile designs on display at our West London showroom and can be ordered in fabric of your choice. It’s currently shown in ‘Coco Tweed’ by Nobilis which is complemented by a bespoke pair of cushions, exclusive to Jenny Blanc, with an ornately embroidered border and antique trim.

The floor lamp is by Heathfield & Co. and was first shown at Decorex in September. We immediately chose it for our West London showroom because of its elegant design – perfect for transitional or more contemporary interiors. The curtain fabric by William Yewoard is reminiscent of traditional oriental china in shades of white and blue. This fabric is excellent value and works beautifully for curtains and cushions.

Finishing touches include our fabulous coloured glassware which is new to the showroom for autumn, a bespoke tasselled pouf in complementary shades of blue and gold, a fabulous pair of ceramic birds and – very important at this time of year – a variety of candles perfect for creating a soft ambient glow as the evening draws in!
