TEXTILES - scion

Fabric and wallpaper brand Scion were thrilled to see that the new John Lewis Christmas advert features two of their eye-catching Scion Living rugs: Kaleido and Yoki. The pattern designs were taken from their best-selling fabrics and made in conjunction with leading rug manufacturer Brink & Campman. This gave me the perfect excuse to check in to Scion and see what else was new since we last reported. For their latest collections they have taken inspiration from the 1970's taking style elements from glam rock, disco, boho, and flower power. See more of Scion's Soul, Spirit, and Rhythm collections online here.
