Spotlight on: Sian Zeng
We had a great time at Decorex last month, and it is still igniting excitement amongst our team! Especially when we have anew projects that gives us the opportunity to use the products that we have seen and absolutely love.
One of those products was the work of Sian Zeng, who designs and create stunning wall coverings. Zeng was a graduate from Central Saint Martins and won the Elle Decoration Young Talent of the Year Award for 2010/2011 and Maison et Objet Les Découvertes prize in 2015. Since then she has been designing and crafting her wall coverings in her London Studio, with a focus not only traditional but cutting edge and innovative techniques.
The wall covering that really caught our eye was the Woodlands wallpaper in Brown and Pink. This not only can as a standard classic wallpaper, but had been recreated as a magnetic wallpaper. Although we have all seen magnetic wall coverings before, these had a little something extra special about them. They really capture the imagination of the viewer, sparking of stories in their head with its beautifully illustrated and whimsical characters. These include little flying pigs, lama riding hedgehogs and quaint little cottages.
And if pink is not quite to your taste, Sian Zeng also offers a dinosaur wall covering in a green and yellow. Just as exciting and imaginative as the Woodlands version, with equally stunning illustrations.
We think these would be perfect for a kids playroom of bedroom, what child wouldn’t love to create stories on their very own story wall? And let’s be honest, what parent wouldn’t enjoy that too…
Keep your eyes peeled, they might just work their way into one of our next projects designs..
