- Week 1
Harlequin meaning ‘varied in colour or decoration’, sums up the in-house studio’s eclectic design ethos perfectly. Alongside digital design technology, the designers love to get the paintbrushes out and experiment with watercolours, gouache, inks and more to create new effects and colour blends. The end results are looks that bend the rules and allow you to be as creative as you choose.
Harlequin’s pursuit of design innovation probably evolved as a result of our links with manufacturing. They’ve shared a site with the wallpaper factory for over 30 years so the designers really know and understand the products – including how to push the boundaries as technology advances. By mixing innovative production techniques with ambitious, uninhibited design they have earnt a global reputation as a high fashion, trend-leading brand.
Style Library is now the official home for six of the best British brands: Zoffany, Harlequin, Sanderson, Morris & Co., Scion and Anthology. Design is at the heart of everything Harlequin does and are proud to be original. From concept to creation, their collections reflect the unique talents, personalities and handwritings of the in-house designers – with astonishingly beautiful results. We also passionately believe in nurturing new design talent. Harlequin have proudly sponsored the UK New Designers show for over ten years. The innovation today is built on our teams’ voracious appetite for experimentation, their constant search for new ideas and a heritage of solid craftsmanship and historical importance.
