Occasions 2014

Hübsch Occasions. Have you heard of them? There have been earlier “occasions” before this latest one in 2014. My friend first heard of them in 2012 and introduced me to them. It’s difficult not to just trot out the company’s own blurb because it is not only modest and non-sensational, it’s true. Simply stated, Hübsch, a leading interior design firm, give their customers a unique experience in terms of service, quality and (of course) design. They are not sloppy or shoddy; they pay attention to details. And the details are what make their designs eye-catching, if not breath-taking.
The Occasions 2014 range will hit shops in August/September. The new collection takes inspiration from Native American Indian Navajo patterns and colour combinations. These are particularly evident in their woven baskets and their rustic pillows. Geometric influences abound, particularly the diamond shape, which can be seen in the vases, the lampshades, the quilting on cushions and on the textiles. It’s not all about soft furnishings- they have a penchant for brass on metallic surfaces. The skill of styling is in the fact that the items are functional and the designs simple yet striking. I mentioned brass. A metal finish much-underused these days. It looks great when mixed with black.
When it comes to storage solutions, Hübsch use oak wood to produce simple but effective and stylish ways of storing items. The company design their products in Denmark, but the production of their goods takes place all over the world, but primarily the Far East.
The system used to present their new designs is as follows: Tendencies- a collection full of new products for spring and summer, and occasions, usually introduced in August for the end summer and autumn time.
One thing is for certain, the fresh Scandinavian style is as unusual as it is simple and straightforward. With woven baskets, wooden tables you can create a distinct and inviting aura for your home, with each piece capturing the balance between a plain yet contemporary style.
It’s not only interior design; the company offer a wide range of products for the garden as well as the home. In fact some furniture works well indoors, outdoors, or in a conservatory extension. It’s difficult to describe accurately the style of the Hübsch designs. Mix a little Native American Indian with a large dollop of Bohemian extravagance using raw materials and subtle stains and colours. It has been described by some style commentator as collection that could create for you the most sought-after end-of-garden shed! Not a shed with garden tools, spiders’ webs, and rotting timbers, but a light summerhouse type of affair, stocked with comfortable and pleasing-to-the-eye wood and fabric creations. In fact once you’ve bought your first item from their catalogue, it’s difficult to not then want to add more to extend the look. You could indeed be in danger of creating a whole household full of Hübsch furniture and furnishings. Bit I for one wouldn’t see that as a problem. Go for it!
