Collection 2020: Echoes

The world in which we live is not just made of the here and now. As we see, feel and listen to our environment we are also strongly affected by memories – feelings that add many rich layers of experience and emotion and allow us to build up our own particular view of the world. These echoes of days gone by were central to the inspiration for the 2020 Sahco collection.

As they travelled around the globe, Design Director Anna Vilhelmine Ebbesen and Art Director Vincent Van Duysen allowed elements of the past to combine with a vision of the future creating textiles that convey the rich patina of history viewed through the lens of the modern world in which we live.

Explore the textiles

Travel plays its part in the tapestry of our life and here echoes of such far flung trips to Peru, Japan, Morocco and Italy appear, creating an interior world that tells a story of experience and a life lived to the full. The collection plays with the contrasts between heavy and light weaves, rich textures and sheer transparency.

Fine velvets, elegant moirés and jacquard chenilles evoke the luxury. Whilst glazed cotton and iridescent taffetas bring a modernity to the range to create richly nuanced textile combinations within interiors. The contemporary feel of textiles inspired by graphic art and pattering of marble sit beautifully next to those influenced by Renaissance wall coverings or antique Japanese kimonos.

Soft and tactile textures, crisp and papery surfaces with bold designs create an exciting blend of different materials with distressed finishes and dissolved patterns.
Colours are centred around a natural harmonious base, shades of brown and beige, tobacco and bone white.
Highlighted with aqua blues, mint greens and caramel to create a palette of soft and blurred hues that perfectly captures the mix of classic and contemporary for which Sahco is famed.
