British fashion designer Matthew Williamson became revered for his bold use of color and patterns. Flamboyant motifs including peacock feathers are routinely mixed up with exotic palm leafs and butterflies and strong jewel-like tones. The man also loves interiors. As he himself says: “Just like fashion, interiors are an extension of your personality. An opportunity to express what it is you’re about. If you don’t love it, no-one else will.” We couldn’t agree more. Hot-on-the-heels of his latest collection for CB2, The Chosen Club shares his top 10 pieces.
butterfly table lamp
British fashion designer Matthew Williamson lends his unique sense of glam to our favorite new lamp. Handprinted with shades of blue and green, then covered with a shiny black butterfly detail, the silk shade diffuses for a soft, sultry glow.
butterfly wheel teal with tassels pillow
Embellished with his signature butterfly print, this teal and black print puts a contemporary spin on Williamson's traditional boho appeal. The price includes the opportunity to a select a lofty down insert (the most luxurious filling ever- now that's a rare thing indeed).
lizzy royal purple teapot
With a cool revamp on the whole prim and proper English vibe (the name Lizzy Royal is a nod to Queen Elizabeth), this Victorian-style teapot is both sculptural and eye-catching.
2-piece bronze and atol bamboo bunching side table set
$649 (was $678)
Nature-inspired for a lustrous blue-agate effect, these side tables bring sophisticated whimsy to any decor scheme.
palm tree gold taper candle holder
Need a little extra embellishment? This shiny brass mini tree will stand ornate on the mantel, the dining table or any styling ensemble.
rainbow snake pouf
$169 (was $199)
Inspired by the lustrous sheen of exotic snakes, Matthew Williamson scaled this pouf with a vibrant layering of pattern and color. Dense bead filling makes substantial enough for seat/ottoman/tray duty too.
Bring a touch of British whimsy to the room. This hot pink flamingo statue has a secret compartment that chicly stashes away small items like rings or spare change. Brilliant for a fresh pop of color.
butterfly wheel grey bed linens
$59.95 – 169
This wild and whimsical bedding from Williamson is a sumptuous soft cotton/linen blend. We love the dramatic graphic with an ombre gradation from white to grey to black.
avec apartment sofa with brass legs
For this new-look sofa Matthew Williamson reimagined his iconic jungle print, Mother Amazon, to produce this slightly distressed rainforest of blue, green and purple. Scaling well for smaller spaces, we love this piece for a luxe eclectic townhouse feel.
peacock linen throw
From one of his most iconic prints comes this throw—Peacock Hearts. Signature Matthew Williamson, it abandons all English sensibility for vibrant tones and color clashing. We love it as a housewarming/holiday gift, too.
