What inspired you to create Création Baumann’s «Carte Blanche»?
I’ve been working with Création Baumann for quite some time now. I appreciate their creative process and, having visited their facilities in Langenthal, I’m also very impressed by how they operate. Their textiles represent the same quality and innovation we at Erik Bruce Fabrik find so important in window treatment design. The fact that Création Baumann designs and makes their own products is directly aligned with our approach to design and manufacturing.
What is the characteristic element of the furnished object?
All the windows in this project are facing north, yielding low light. The spacious master bedroom has a very low, wide window. We chose to focus on the horizontal feeling of that space in a dark sophisticated colour palette. In the Living Room, we had a window that soared over 6 meters high. In this room, we wanted a sense of pattern in a scale appropriate for the room. We focused on the ombré effect of 5 different colourways creating our own pattern in the curtains. It’s a really beautiful effect.
What do you appreciate about the SILK & SPICES collection?
There is a richness and elegance in both the textures and colours. I also love the use of technology like the luxurious jacquard ARTEMISIA.
