After many years of writing about design I am so delighted to say that I am launching my first home collection, a bed range in collaboration with Royal Warrant holder Hypnos.
Hypnos x Amira Hashish: The Collection
When Hypnos approached me to design a boutique bed collection I knew we had an exciting project on our hands.
Our vision was to combine Hypnos’ 100 years of craftsmanship and British heritage with contemporary trends and fabric printing techniques. This collaboration is a celebration of traditional furniture making skills, paired with the technology which enables us to create striking beds in a new way for a design conscious customer.
It was incredibly important to me to achieve this by working with fresh talent from the British fabric industry, so we approached Insley & Nash, whose previous work has been fashion focused, and digital fabric producer Flock, which represents young textile maker Angela Jane Johnston.
While the Insley & Nash patterns we have designed are screen printed by hand in their London workshop, the fabric from Angela Jane Johnston at Flock uses digital printing methods to give the headboards contrasting finishes.
A bed is an investment piece, both for your wellbeing and the style of your home, so I wanted to approach the design as if this was a fashion item that you would buy because it suited your taste and made you feel special. We created each of the fabric patterns from scratch and I drew on personal inspiration to create standout looks.
The collection includes The Sand, The Med and The Swan. Each bed has its own distinct personality to correspond with three very different aesthetics.
True luxury can be found in little details, so we have paid close attention to the headboard shape, the divan feet and the textures and colours of the fabric. Knowing that the beds are handmade by skilled artisans is a joy. They are beautifully crafted to offer maximum support and comfort to the sleeper, with mattresses that create the perfect environment for sleep through natural fibres and pocket spring technology.
The result is a range we are extremely proud of which embraces new interior design concepts while remaining true to the Hypnos ethos of quality, craftsmanship and uncovering the art of sleep.
We soft launch with The Sand at Decorex (stand C20A) as part of London Design Festival and will reveal The Med and The Swan soon. Watch this space…
