Chilewich introduces SS20 collection

Five new tabletop designs launched

Chilewich has launched its spring/summer 2020 collection with five new tabletop designs and new colourways for existing products.

Tango, Hopscotch, Chroma, Thistle, and Thatch are the new SS20 designs while new colourways for Bamboo and Heddle add depth to existing weaves.

A stunning synthesis of texture, colour, and dimensionality, Tango brings together a variety of weaves and densities to create the appearance of raised, vibrant stripes on an open, neutral ground. A handloom developed in the Chilewich studio was the basis for this dynamic yet nuanced design for the table, which is available in two colourways: Dusk and Garden.

Hopscotch is among the most tactile designs ever developed by the Chilewich design studio. This new tabletop weave is rooted in classic weave structures that can be traced to 18th-century England. Each of the four colours is woven individually, creating richly textured layers while maintaining the precision of a grid. Hopscotch debuts in two colourways: Sangria and Coconut.

A modern interpretation of madras, Chroma explores geometry and tonal variation on an expansive scale. Different colours in the warp and weft combine to create an iridescent effect that brings harmony to disparate hues and shades in two colourways: Dove and Dusk.

An airy and serene counterpoint to denser and more dynamic weaves, Thistle is designed to bring a veil of texture to the table in soft shades of Coconut and Dove. Artfully combined neutrals accentuate this lace-like open weave.

Debuting in both table mats and floor mats is Thatch. This timeless new texture in neutral hues of Dove, Rain, and Pebble reveals the power of subtle shifts in colour to create a richly patterned surface. This quiet yet distinctive weave is designed to complement a broad range of styles and colour palettes.

The spring/summer 2020 collection also expands the palettes for a broad range of existing designs. New to the Heddle range of placemats and woven floor mats is the Pebble colourway, which balances bold texture with warm neutrals. Bamboo gains dimension with Coconut and Rain (for tabletop and floor) and Spring Green (tabletop only).

All products in the collection are made in the USA of Chilewich’s durable TerraStrand extruded yarns.
