Haven Collection – Winter 2015
At the outset of the Winter 2015 season, Mr. Bigglesworthy offers a fresh, modern design interiors experience with the launch of a new collection - Haven.
Haven is an invitation to experience a moment of quiet and balance. Mr. Bigglesworthy combines a palette of soft colours with subtle graphic prints and relaxed textures. These are accentuated with jewel tones and classic, clean mid-century lines.
The collection places an emphasis on designers who have achieved a perfect sense of proportion and form. Central to the collection is a charming suite of lounge and dining furniture from UK cult favourite maker Ercol. Each piece is expertly crafted from solid elm and beech.
Mr. Bigglesworthy also builds on previous collections with a new edit of Danish and American modern furniture. Impressive pieces from noteworthy designers Finn Juhl, Kai Kristiansen, Grete Jalk, George Nelson and Paul McCobb are inspired works which are a delight to the senses.
Haven is presented with an understated, eclectic styling direction. The brand has involved contemporary, dried floral artworks from talented duo MarkAntonia.

Visitors are invited to enjoy a refreshing cup of tea and seasonal Winter treats. All Haven collection pieces will also be available online from 10am Saturday morning.
