The range was specifically designed for Soho House Mumbai which opened last year, the first House in Asia, and was inspired by the city.

‘We wanted it to be so you would go in there and see all these amazing little details that reminded you of [Mumbai] culture but also created loads of layers so it felt like you were coming into a Soho House,” says Soho House Mumbai lead designer Scarlett Supple.

 “It’s a whole serene space that you can relax in, like sitting at home, which is really unique in Mumbai because lots of their hospitality spaces are really contemporary and really clean.”

Pieces to buy include the Priya cushion found in the bedrooms and rugs found dotted around the House.

“Our three cushion prints were designed bespoke with hand block printing and feature traditional craftsmanship and skilled techniques,” says Soho Home product developer, Kirsty Orr. “The geometric elements and the colour palette of on-trend shades such as  blue and mustard easily fit into people’s existing colour schemes at home.”

The team also collaborated with Samarkand Design for a range of lampshades which individually hand-cut from vintage silk sarees sourced in India and hand-pleated by skilled craftsmen in Devon. The shades are available in the same tones of teal, saffron, oyster, chartreuse and coral found around Soho House Mumbai.

The Tycoon’s Designer

A-list designer Tara Bernerd is describing her typical clients, “highly successful bachelors”, and what they are looking for in an apartment style: “What I call the tycoon flavor is evolving,” she says. “It used to be all about marble and gold in Hong Kong; as black as marble or as gold as gold could be. That was a mix of symbolism and materials – it’s very hot here in Asia and you don’t want carpets for example. But not everything is marble now. Wood flooring might come in which over the years we haven’t seen much of.”

For the haves and have yachts

Outdoor carpet by Tai Ping

Tai Ping received so many requests from customers for carpets specifically to put on their yacht decks that they’ve decided to launch an outdoor collection. Designed to withstand water and UV rays, and to place on the terrace or next to the swimming pool as well on a boat, the range is made to the same exacting standards as Tai Ping’s existing hand made collection.
