A Year in FEATHR | Art, interiors, wallpaper, fabrics & more

29 December 2016

As our first full year of FEATHR draws to a close, we wanted to bring you some of the highlights of our year.  One of the greatest pleasures of a starting up something new is the unexpected journey it takes you on.  Our first year included FEATHR wallpapers launching in markets as diverse as Japan, Australia and Ukraine; wallpaper and fabric collaborations with incredible talent like Kiki Slaughter and Reeta Ek; a picking up no.2 spot at the H&G Wallpaper of the Year Awards; a series of awesome partnerships with the Affordable Art Fair and the launch of our new fabric and cushion range.

It’s been kinda busy.  But it has been the most wonderful year.  Thanks to everyone who’s made it possible and been kind of enough to support us along the way.

So here is a year in FEATHR.

1000 submissions for new collection

We opened a new challenge brief in spring.

Open sourcing keeps us fresh.  We received over 1000 submissions

For our new collection.  Only 15 artists would make the cut.

 

New artist collaborations

New collaborations included renowned american

Abstract artist, kiki slaughter, experimental x-ray artist,

Hugh turvey, and talents of finnish fine artist, reeta ek.

 

New vinyl wallcoverings

We received a ton of love from architects firms –

And requests for our designs in hotels, offices and

Restaurants.  So we fast-tracked the launch of our

Vinyl substrate.

 

A new collection: entangled

Our new collection of wallcoverings launched

In the late summer.  Featuring 18 new works, the

Collection immediately won plaudits, including

No.2 spot in the wallpaper of the year awards.

 

Wallpaper of the year awards

Only a few weeks after launching, we picked up no.2

Spot at the homes & gardens wallpaper of the year awards.

Kiki slaughter’s beautiful ‘oh la la’ design was the piece

That caught the judges eyes.

 

Launch in japan

Long before starting feathr, we loved walpa:

Japan’s wonderfully eccentric leading retailer of

Wallpaper.  So we were beyond delighted to partner

Up with them as feathr’s exclusive distributor in japan.

 

Decorex & the london design festival

Our official launch for entangled took place

At decorex, in septemer 2016.  Over 4 days

We introduced the design world to 18 new

Additions to our wallpaper collections.

 

Feathr launches in ukraine

We spent a few days in kiev, the stunning capital of ukraine,

Launching with daylight, our new regional distributor.  A total

Pleasure to see feathr work alongside the likes of

Missoni, cole & son and osborne & little.

 

Feathr x sleep

Working with globally renowned architect firm, gensler, we were

Plugged into the hotel show, sleep.  Gensler were commissioned

To create the hotel room of the future, and used paul meates’ ‘ninja

Fish’ to provide a suitably fresh and modern backdrop.

 

Launch of fabrics & cushions

We were delighted to end our year with new lines.  Our first

Fabric and cushion ranges launched just before christmas.

Featuring our most popular designs on luxurious velvets and

Soft cottons, we’re expecting a lot of love for them in 2017.

 

An exciting year ahead

New artists. New products.  New countries.  2017 is going to be

Another busy year.  We’re already working on new pieces with artists,

Expanding our wallcoverings to include silks and metallics, planning new

Ranges and preparing to launch in markets in europe, asia and

The americas.  It’ll be ace.  We hope you’ll enjoy it too.
