  • A New Look for Arteriors at High Point 2016

    Thursday, November 03, 2016

  • Hamilton Conte Preview 2017 Collection at Maison Objet

    Friday, September 30, 2016

    In avant-première of its 2017 visual image, Hamilton Conte have shared 
    a few of their latest products at the September Maison & Objet Paris.

    Hamilton Conte’s creations are typically inspired by 20th century 
    lines and particularly by the 1970s. 

    For the September presentations at Maison & Objet Paris, 
    the brand has brought in elements of the Art Deco and Orientalist movements. 
    The fluid lines of their products combine with more geometric and
    decidedly Art Deco elements, as well as the exotic. 

    The PEACOCK GATE of the City Palace of Jaipur in India served notably 
    as inspiration for the patterns and colours of the textiles used.

    Finally, the brand has departed from its more 
    traditionally neutral canvas to integrate high colour. 

    The presentation spaces at Maison & Objet were also completely renewed 
    with Art Deco-inspired dividers as well as a totally new layout.

    “As in each Maison & Objet presentation, 
    I try to show the Hamilton Conte brand and its product range from another angle. 
    This time, I was inspired by this door in India, 
    which I found both joyous and atypical. 
    That allowed me both to bring together different styles and also to play with colours
    - blue and green being my special favourites for quite some time.
    My challenge was to find some sort of harmony in this diverse palette 
    as well as to add in touches of orange,”
    Fabian Pellegrinet Conte,  Artistic Director of the brand.
