SHERIDAN Re-enters Malaysia With Stylish and Luxurious Spring Summer Collection

It is good to have this Stylish, Elegant and Luxurious Brand to Malaysian market!

IMG_20190801_103316

Sheridan, one of Australia’s most loved and coveted bed and bath brands, makes a stylish re-entry into the Malaysian market with the launch of its luxurious Spring Summer 2019 collection at its flagship counter at Parkson Elite Pavilion.

IMG_20190801_122831

Already making waves around the world, the new collection features a nature-inspired seasonal palette which draws inspiration from Australia’s signature natural surrounds, and sun-soaked days by the beach.

Photo 1 (15)

At its newly-renovated flagship counter at Parkson Elite Pavilion, Sheridan showcased its latest collection as part of the larger “Make Tomorrow Beautiful” campaign.

Through this launch, Sheridan re-affirmed its commitment to the environment and its desire to make tomorrow beautiful, not only by creating beautiful products, but also by choosing sustainable materials and environmentally friendly manufacturing processes.

Speaking at the launch, Sheridan Group General Manager, Mr Paul Gould, said that while artistry and quality have always been synonymous with the brand since its founding over 50 years ago, sustainability is also a key tenet of its identity. In fact, Sheridan’s founder, Claudio Alcorso, not only had a vision to introduce creative thought and beauty into the everyday things of life, he was also a passionate environmentalist.

With that in mind, Sheridan launched its campaign to Make Tomorrow Beautiful – not only by bringing artistry and craft into day-to-day life, but by creating long-lasting, quality products that are produced in an environmentally sustainable manner.

Mr Gould explained that with Sheridan products, customers can sleep easy knowing that they have done something good for the planet, because more than the luxurious fabrics, high thread counts, and soothing artistry, these products were made with the goal of minimizing environmental impact.

Luxurious and long-lasting products

For instance, Sheridan uses only superior long-staple cotton, which, as its name suggests, has been cultivated to have very long fibres. Fabric woven from these fibres is more durable, less prone to pilling, and possesses a softer touch. This means that these sheets can be used for a long time, rather than being replaced after just one or two years of use.
A prime example of the quality of Sheridan’s sheeting fabrics is the Palais range, which is an evergreen classic of enduring luxury. Spun from superior long-staple fibres in a lustrous sateen weave which creates luxuriously soft next-to-skin comfort, these 1,200 thread count sheets also feature a close weave that yields a silky yet durable fabric. The pillow cases and duvet covers are trimmed with Palais’ trademark triple-stitched embroidery, available in a range of designer colours.

Environmental sustainability

Chief amongst its efforts to be environmentally sustainable is the use of fibres and products that minimize environmental impact. For instance, Sheridan uses renewable fibres, like organic cotton and Tencel™. Sheridan’s Organic Cotton collection uses 100% Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic cotton and will be available in Malaysia by October 2019. It comprises fitted sheets, pillow cases, and hand and bath towels, and in continuing its sustainability goals, the fitted sheets and pillow cases come in reusable matching cotton bags.

In addition, Sheridan also uses Tencel™, which is a renewable and innovative cellulosic fibre that leave no trace in nature. This season, Tencel™ is available in the Sanderling bed, which features a botanical jacquard weave made from Tencel Lyocell and cotton blended fibres. This artwork was hand drawn in Sheridan’s design studio, and then interpreted into a weave by its master weaver.

At the same time, Sheridan is continually working towards removing all unnecessary packaging from its products. In the past 12 months, Sheridan has already eliminated 100 tonnes of cardboard from its packaging, and is working to ensure that by 2025, all of its packaging is recyclable or reusable.

Spring Summer 2019 – When beds become art

Turning to the Spring Summer 2019 collection, Mr Gould shared that the inspiration behind the collection was the idea of how we fill the summer days – languid, carefree days by the beach, sun-soaked afternoons in the great outdoors, and respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

True to the brand, Sheridan’s artists interpreted this inspiration through depictions of Australian flora and foliage, using a palette of warm neutrals, hues like coral, rose, wheat and gold, accented with natural greens and blues. All of the artwork that adorns the beds were created in-house by Sheridan’s artists in its Sydney Design Studio. The result is a cohesive collection that soothes, calms and rejuvenates.

Some standouts include the Bellport bed, which features a watercolour print of a contemporary take on Australia’s signature natural surrounds. Rendered in coral, gold, and blue, it celebrates the change of seasons and co-ordinates well with this season’s accessories.

Another featured bed is the Atherton Plantation, which provided a rich counterpoint to the Bellport. Evocative of the inkiest campfire nights, Atherton features rich floral prints against a navy background.

Finally, Sheridan also presented a strong range of decorative accessories, including throw cushions and bed covers rendered in a variety of materials, such as sheep fleece, silk, velvet, and linen, all in beautiful co-ordinating colours.

With such exquisite detailing, thoughtful touches, and conscious resourcing, sleep has never been more alluring. Sheridan’s Spring Summer 2019 collection of quality home products is now available at:

  • its flagship counter at Parkson Elite Pavillion
  • Parkson Elite Gurney (Penang)
  • Sogo KL
  • Isetan KLCC
  • Sogo Southkey (JB).

  • Organic Cotton – Fitted sheet from RM690
  • Sanderling – Bed set from RM2,180
  • Bellport – Bed set from RM2,700

DULUX Art Jam Adds Colours For Your Raya Decorations

Hari Raya is a time for renewal, whereby family and friends reaffirm bonds by catching up at each other’s open houses, over home-cooked food. It is because of this celebration that many families choose to spruce up their homes with a fresh coat of paint.

Photo 6 (1)

Riding on the spirit of fostering bonds, Dulux – the leading decorative paint brand of AkzoNobel and Dr Eric Leong, Malaysian renowned designer and also the Head of Interior Architecture & Design School of One Academy, have partnered to host a workshop and showcase how easy it is to embark on a project to give walls at home a new breath of life.

Photo 1 (8)

During the workshop, Lee Swee Chin, Head of Brand Marketing at AkzoNobel Decorative Paints Malaysia said:

“Today’s art jam initiative is part of our efforts to share the positive effects that colours bring, particularly during a festive season. With the Hari Raya celebrations coming soon, we hope that the tips and tricks shared today will be put to good use to make this year’s celebration extra special.

Having hosted and produced more than 10 well-received TV programmes that revolve around interior decoration and designing, Dr Eric Leong is one of the most recognised faces in the industry. We are thankful that he is part of this project and look forward to future partnerships with him”

Throughout the workshop, Dr Leong tutored attendees on how to create several easy-to-do designs, including batik, lines, gradients, and geometrical shapes. He also gave a demonstration on the use of Dulux Ambiance Special Effects paints to achieve the metallic brush effect.

More importantly, he shared several basic steps for a successful Do-It-Yourself paint project, in which he explained:

“The first step is to select a feature wall, which is usually the wall that faces the entrance and is the first wall that visitors see upon entering the home.

The next step would be to use a paint that adds texture to make that wall stand out even more. Dulux has the Ambiance Special Effects range, which mimics the look and feel of linen, velvet, marble and even metallic.

To really highlight the Ambiance Special Effects, we would recommend for it to be applied on one wall that you would like to be the focal point of the room. Choose complementary colours on the accompanying walls or you can always go with a standard paint for the base, and use the special effects paint for the additional designs. The general rule of thumb is to not use more than two colours for a single wall.

Once you have selected your colours and paint, the actual painting process can then begin. Make sure that each layer of paint is completely dry before applying the next. If you aren’t sure about what colours to use, just visit Dulux Malaysia website for some ideas, especially colours that complement ‘Spiced Honey’. You can also download the award-winning Dulux Visualizer app, which allows you to create real-time virtual impression of what your room will look, for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store!”

‘Spiced Honey’ (also known as Crème Brulee) is Dulux’s Colour of the Year for 2019 and one of the main colours used throughout the workshop. It is described as a versatile shade filled with warm and inviting tones of amber and caramel.

“This colour, when combined with complementary shades, can transform your living room into a space that is great for the family and for hosting friends during this Hari Raya season,” Lee concluded.

In conjunction with the upcoming Hari Raya celebrations, Dulux is hosting its ‘Ceriakan Raya-mu’ contest throughout 8 April to 26 May 2019. Customers who purchase selected Dulux paints during this period will automatically be in the running to win electrical appliances and furniture from the Ashley Furniture HomeStore. With this, it will help you complete your home makeover for your Raya celebration to enjoy with your loved ones.
