19/09/2018 - Award-winning, London-based designer Genevieve Bennett’s two-part collection, Braid & Bloom, showcases her trademark cut and layered leatherwork techniques on a new range of products launching exclusively at Decorex 2018. Featuring an intense palette of dark and light tones worked on select luxury, natural materials including leather, brass, silk, wool and glass. A widely respected and in-demand creative partner for a burgeoning number of international brands, including Mulberry, Knoll and Wedgwood, Genevieve’s signature leatherwork is much sought-after by interior designers and private collectors globally.

Braid & Bloom is an exquisite two-part collection inspired by the masters of Art Deco ornamental metalwork which explores a love of detail and tactile surface. With new pieces which see a focus on pairing meticulously etched brass and hand sculpted leatherwork for a collection with a unique and contemporary aesthetic.
 
Sculptural form has always been key in Genevieve’s leatherwork and is an essential part of Braid & Bloom. Each piece has been carefully considered in its response to light and shadow in form and colour, rewarding its owner with a lifetime of quiet pleasure.

The palette features ten stunning colours - metallic midnight blue, deep forest verdant green, ink and emerald. Dove grey, smudged rose and putty, metallic rose. Cream & platinum. The collection consists of art panels and screens, mirrors and rugs. A series of objects kept intentionally limited.
 
BLOOM ETCHED METAL & LEATHER COLLECTION

Edgar Brandt and Albert Rateau. Bloom Etch explores a love of detail and tactile surface, in metal and leather.
Flawless brass is meticulously cut and etched – creating a highly detailed exquisite patterning which responds to beautifully to light. Precisely engineered outlines of solid metal hold signature sculpted leatherwork for a folding screen.

The contrast between the imposing form and material of the screen and the gentle tactility of the leather and etched metal creates a truly unique and contemporary aesthetic. Bloom Etch mirror collection presents disks of absolutely flat, reflective glass held within precisely engineered outlines of delicately etched solid metal.
 
BRAID SCULPTED LEATHER COLLECTION

Inspired by the simple geometry of braiding, twisting, weaving and binding. Traditional techniques from leatherworking. Referencing saddlery, bridlery, ribbon braiding as well as the heritage of wrought iron work.

Elegantly and confidently worked and refined. Premium Italian leather is carved and layered to create intriguing sculptural surfaces which respond to light and shadow. Using a stunning selection of 10 matte and lustrous leathers, the work is evolved and made to order for screens, wall-panels, artworks, headboards, mirror strap details and bespoke cabinet furniture.
