HELMII + HOUSE OF HAWKES
helmii, the UAE’s first online customised furniture store, has collaborated with interior designer Kathryn Hawkes, founder of House of Hawkes, to design and manufacture a stylish new bed with removable covers for the entire frame. Offering versatility in design from a traditional upholstered headboard, these easy to exchange washable and dry-cleanable covers offer great new options. The launch collection is in a limited edition range of colours. The soft, washable, textured linen and cotton blend covers are available in off-white, beige, grey and dark grey, while the polycotton dry-clean-only covers are available in cream, parchment, stone, grey, turquoise and sorbet pink. Founder of helmii Simon Moore said: ‘We love the colours selected for the launch range and are already planning the next collection, which will offer a completely different mood and feel, incorporating some beautiful velvet options in deeper colours.’
