For Spring Summer 2014 Couverture welcomes new label Anntian. With unique cuts and meticulously hand rendered detailing, this Berlin based brand is not to be missed. This season, drawing inspiration from light and shadows with the introduction of basic forms and geometric shapes, the collection encompasses elegant designs and intricate prints, beautifully finished in high quality silk. Anntian is exclusive to Couverture in the UK.

With a clear graphical, fun and interactive approach to design, Paris based Elvire Laurent and Marie-Cerise Lichtle created OMY Design & Play in 2012.
Having both graduated from Arts-Deco Paris, the duo draw on their backgrounds and experience in graphic design and illustration to create a line of creative and intelligent products for children and the home.
Giant colouring maps of Paris, placemats and DIY paper costumes in the signature OMY style provide endless opportunities for experimentation and creativity. All materials are chosen for their quality and respect for the environment, highlighting the brands underlying ethical message.
OMY Design & Play is new to Couverture for Autumn/Winter 2013
As autumn is looming and its grey outside, look to designers further afield to brighten up home interiors. Products from Hay, Mae Engelgeer and Mina Perhonen create a contemporary look with natural elements and interesting contrasts of wood, glass and vibrant colour.
The orange top coffee pot by Leeds born designer George Sowden and scented smudge sticks from US brand Juniper Ridge are some of our personal seasonal favourites.
New to Couverture this season, Micaela Greg is the result of a sisterly collaboration between Marie and Karen Potesta.
Operating from the cool shores of San Francisco, the American siblings combine their textile design backgrounds to craft visually bold pieces that fuse modern geometric patterns with intermingling textures. These artful techniques are anchored with deceptively simplistic silhouettes for a boyishly cool aesthetic.
The spring summer collection sees a muted palette of soft mint, blues and greys punctuated with perforations and intriguing textures – perfect pieces for cool summer nights and stretching a warm weather wardrobe into next season.

Perfect the art of stacking using simplistic shapes in brass and bronze – a handful of mythology-inspired rings looks divine, while delicate chains with beaded and polished gemstone highlights have maximum impact when layered together. Here we present a selection of our new jewellery collections from returning favourites Odette and Helena Rohner.
Kit out your summer wardrobe with superior accessories and be ready for whatever weather the British summer throws your way. Seriously stylish acetate frames from cult designer Thierry Lasry along with lightweight scarves in go-with-anything hues from Ikou Tschüss are your key pieces for tackling the inevitably unpredictable elements.
Last Thursday Couverture opened its doors to Spring and filled the store with wonderful arrangements by Scarlet & Violet.
To coincide with this year’s Chelsea Flower Show and in celebration of the centenary year, we hosted an in store Pop-Up Shop and held personal floral master classes by founder Vic Brotherson. The store was in bloom with Foxgloves, Peonies and roses galore and tasty sweet & savoury treats were had a plenty!
Signed copies of Brotherson’s book Vintage Flowers and bespoke vases by renowned London Ceramicist Jacqui Roche were also available to buy.
Following Couverture’s recent travels to New York, we have put together a collection of our favourite images from the trip. Highlights included a journey to the East Village where we discovered some of our best loved US brands Steven Alan , Rachel Comey and A Detacher. Exclusive to us in the UK! We also managed to fit in a visit to the Wovenplay studio in Brooklyn where we had a chance to meet with the designers.
