Niki Jones

Interior designer Maha recently talked about creative director and shop owner Niki Jones on her blog (here) and I fell instantly in love with this online store in Scotland. I love the ethnic prints and patterns and the strong contrasts, especially all of the white and black. Does white and black ever go out of style? It doesn’t seem to be the case, it’s such a classy, seductive palette. It’s good and evil brought together to form a passionate dance, one trying to lead, but neither succeeding because the balance is the beauty of their dance. That is why I think that the collection of Niki Jones is so stunning. And it’s not all about white and black, there are other colors brought in to add spice like purple and red. Those strong jewel tones that are so popular this time of the year.

Niki Jones

So, who is Niki Jones you ask? Niki trained at the Scottish College of Textiles and the Royal College of Art in London before working at Habitat as textile designer and style coordinator. She then got into ceramics and worked as a design director at Wedgwood. Moving out of London, she went to Scotland where she started her own brand of household goods because she couldn’t find well designed and well crafted pieces that were special, online or even in London as she says that she, “became aware that there was a real lack of choice (in London) if you were looking for something a bit different and special.”

In her line, you can find Uzbek textiles, knitted and felted goods from countries like Iceland, furniture with bone inlay, mirrors, rugs, French antiques, optical patterns, embroidery and hand knotting – details she insists on and that give the home personality and style. I love that black silhouette chair, is that not stunning?

Okay and the kitty… I wish I could order that sweet little creature! :) Meowwww!

    I love the homage to Icelandic tradition in fairisle pillows, tea cosies, etc. So timely for that style to be brought forward again. I just had a conversation yesterday with a friend about trends and we both noted the presence of fairisle in fashion and decor. The knit pieces add such softness and texture in a room.

    nikki’s color scheme in those photos is really inspiring! i’ve been on the look out lately for new color combos to get me out of my web design rut. i might have to use those shades of gray, purple – was going to say aubergine…magenta…but i’m just not sure what you’d call that?? – , and mustard in an upcoming project!
