Byron & Byron: curtain poles as room art
Lighting effects and rooms can be made even more expressive with curtains. Now, with the curtain poles from Byron & Byron, interiors can be furnished in an even more stylish, impactful and personal way. Based in London, the British company is managed and motivated by an Italian – Orazio Gualtieri is the CEO and creative driving force behind the manufacturing company and a master of his craft. Byron & Byron is renowned for its elaborately processed, highly ornamental curtain holdbacks made of wood. For Heimtextil 2014, the company has introduced a completely new look to its assortment with the ‘Halo’ series.‘Halo’ appears to float in the room. Light is reflected by the high-gloss acrylic finish and the different shapes of the holdbacks provide for expressive variety in this series, too. Stellar – a drip, Globus – the circle, and Orion – the ellipsis. Matching poles are available in solid and hollow versions. And, typical of Byron & Byron, the creativity does not stop here. Depending on the spatial context, colourway or occasion, hollow poles can be filled with light chains, sparkling stars or personal objects of all kinds. Thus, the impressions and ambience of rooms can be changed quickly and easily and, in particular, personalised, fully in line with the ‘conceptual living’ trend. For most people, the idea of the home is increasingly coupled with the desire for simple changes. This is really simple and inexpensive to do using articles, such as curtains, carpets, cushions and blankets. And, in the twinkling of an eye, the whole room appears in a new light.
