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).

As the future-of-work concept becomes a reality for organisations worldwide, employees demand the flexibility to work, collaborate and innovate anytime, anywhere and in any way they want.

IMG_20190625_140432

Businesses must provide this type of environment to attract new talent and keep their current employees engaged, productive and secure with devices personalised for their needs. Yet IT departments are often unable to focus on transformative initiatives for employee experience as they spend the majority of their time mired in run-the-business tasks like PC deployment, help desk requests, and monitoring and troubleshooting.

Dell Technologies introduces Unified Workspace to help IT transform the end-user experience.

This visionary approach to end-user computing will give workers a frustration-free, ready-to-work experience, while enabling IT with automated, open and intelligent solutions for unified management. Dell Technologies Unified Workspace will revolutionise the way IT admins assist and enable their end users with device selection, deployment, security, management and support through flexible, scalable services and solutions that integrate with any customer environment, regardless of OS, device and cloud environment.

“IT departments today still struggle with basic tasks like PC deployment, help desk requests, and monitoring and troubleshooting, and are often unable to focus on transformative initiatives for employee experience. What they need is a solution that gives employees a frustration-free, ready-to-work experience, while enabling IT with automated, open and intelligent solutions for unified management. Dell Technologies Unified Workspace platform does just that – enabling IT admins to assist and enable their end-users with device selection, deployment, security, management and support in any customer environment, regardless of OS, device and cloud preference.”explained KT Ong, Country Manager – Malaysia, Dell Technologies.

Enabling IT to empower workers

Dell Technologies Unified Workspace helps make customers’ workforce transformation a reality by allowing IT to streamline time-consuming, complex, yet critical tasks with capabilities that provide visibility, insights and automation. The integrated platform allows customers to begin wherever they need the most help – whether it’s in the selection process or deployment or even security or management – and then move to the next priority until they have the full Unified Workspace experience to enable IT and empower workers.

Modernising PC deployment and management from the cloud

Traditional PC lifecycle management (PCLM) is high-touch, expensive and does not scale to increasingly mobile and remote workers. With VMware Workspace ONE as the backbone of Dell Technologies Unified Workspace, customers can utilise unified endpoint management technology to modernise how they deploy, manage and secure their Dell devices.

Once a device is deployed, unified endpoint management capabilities from Workspace ONE make it possible for customers to move beyond traditional PCLM with cloud policy management, streamlined application delivery, automated patching and improved device health monitoring and diagnostics. Workspace ONE delivers a unified, digital workspace experience as employees can seamlessly access any native, SaaS or internal application with single sign on from any device.

Through our integration with Microsoft, customers will benefit from Microsoft 365, Workspace ONE, and Dell Provisioning and Deployment Services seamlessly enabling world-class, modern IT deployment and end-user productivity.
