Bohzaar Designer Photoshoot – Barker & Stonehouse Beds

Zantine Deep Plum bed cover Throw by Bohzaar _3172rt

Zantine Deep Plum bed cover Throw by Bohzaar

It’s been a busy time here at Bohzaar HQ, lots of buying trips, brand new collections

to share with you and some exciting new products in the pipeline.

A few weeks ago, we spent the day shooting our wonderful Panthera Ikat,

Sundara Boho bedroom theme and brand new Zantine collections at a fantastic location house in leafy South London.

So with the van packed, we headed off down the motorway to meet interior stylist

extraordinaire Di Civil, while the camera was safely in the hands of trusted and

renowned photographer Russ Sadur.

Aided by a team of assistants, the location house was transformed into three sets;

classic for Zantine, bohemian for Sundara and look-of- the-moment tribal for Panthera

Ikat.

The location house was perfect (so much so that some of us actually fancied moving

in!) but we couldn’t have done the shoot without the help of our friends at Barker &

Stonehouse. They very generously offered to lend us two beds for the shoot and with

so many to choose from Di had a hard time whittling them down. In the end, we all

agreed that Little Tree Furniture – Whiteleaf Upcycled King Size Bedframe was

perfect for our Panthera Ikat tribal chic look.

The crafted detailing on the headboard was the ideal partner for our ikat and Nordic Cross motifs and fitted in beautifully with our colour scheme, check their Barker & Stonehouse website, it is currently on launch offer for only £799, and we can tell you it is very well made, built for life.

When it came to choosing a bed for our luxurious new Zantine collection,

we knew we wanted something classic but glamorous and which is why we plumped for

the Wiltshire High End Bed supplied by Barker & Stonehouse.

The beautiful velvet upholstery supplied on our bed for the photoshoot teamed with our exquisite

jacquard range and  is the perfect fit and worthy of even the grandest of hotels.

The Wiltshire Bed is available in a wide range of fabrics and colours, for advice on choosing the right one for you, why not pop into one of the 10 nationwide stores.

At the end of a very tiring but very successful shoot, and with all those beds around,

it was tempting to have a quick nap but there’s no rest for the wicked and we were

soon on our way to source even more beautiful bed linen.

We’d love to know what you think so please do drop us a line, and feel free to pin the pictures for your mood boards .

Love from

All at Bohzaar

With special thanks to: Di Civil, Russ Sadur, our wonderful photo shoot team and all at

Create a Luxury Bedroom with the Zantine Jacquard bedding set

Treat yourself to a  luxury high end boutique hotel experience with the new Zantine Jacquard bedding collection, available in Double size, King Size and Super King size with  matching accessories. When we first saw this fabric it stopped us in our tracks, we looked at each with Big smiles and just knew we had to create a new collection using this amazing fabric and launch our new collection using Old Gold & Deep Plum tone bedding first.

Jacquard Bedding Zantine Bohzaar Gold and plum_3163rt

Jacquard Bedding Zantine Bohzaar Gold and plum

Designed and made in Europe to the highest standard possible, this reversible duvet cover has an intricate Byzantine themed pattern in Old Gold and Plum woven throughout, on the reverse side you can change the effect in your bedroom with a pure Old Gold colour which again has the incredible beautiful pattern across the bed set. We are torn whether you would describe this as pure early Byzantium designs or hints of neo-gothic or Pugin style, but one thing is certain it is a very beautiful and stunning bedroom collection.

It works well in large classic country houses, smart london apartments or any bedroom where you want to make a statement.  As for the pleasure of sleeping under it, and over ( as we also have fitted sheets to match), the Jacquard material is so smooth  and tactile.

Did we tell you it is also woven by one of Europe’s  top Jacquard weavers, who have being weaving and supplying the top designer brand names for many many years,  so you can be assured this is simply the best bed linen available.

Being Old Gold you can easily mix and match your accessories already in your home, to give that Wow factor. We have also spared nothing in the attention to detail, by offering two sets of pillowcases.

In the picture below you can see at the rear the the Oxford style are in matching Old Gold and the housewife pillowcases in the middle  are showing of the Plum as a base colour with hints of gold showing through and finally at the front are a pair of  extra cushions we had made as detail pieces in Deep Plum with a gorgeous elaborate pattern that shows classic design, they can be used on the bed or a bedside chair to complement the room or indeed any where you wish to place some deep Plum to Purple colour highlights.

You can buy the full collection now and we hope you will tell all your friends, please feel free to add this all to your  PINTEREST boards,

Beautiful photos of our new ‘Bohemian Chic collection’ taken by the leading interiors photographer Russ Sadur and the whole photo shoot was planned and styled by one of the UK’s top stylists Diana Civil  .

Diana was commissioned this Spring by Julia our Interiors Design Director to shoot a ‘Bohemian Chic’ scene using our new Sundara bed linen collection showing how one can create a chic look simply by adding various  throws and textured fabrics to create simple but stunning looks in your bedroom or apartment.

Julia was inspired by her love of colour and traditional Indian hand block prints, to create this lovely range, many hours were spent last year working with our surface pattern designer Rachel, to capture the essence of Romantic India with the two main patterns of Sundara the larger floral pattern on the main face of the Sundara duvet cover, and the smaller more delicate Dara motif on the rear, the first ever duvet set were printed on a lovely percale cotton in England.

The gorgeous fuchsia pink cushions you can see on the bed were a collaboration between Julia and one of Jaipur’s leading master block printers, each cushion is hand made by dipping a wooden block in natural colour dyes and careful applying the design.

We really enjoyed our location in Wye Hall Crafts area, especially when it was raining, we were right next to the Wye Hall Local Foods produce as well, and opposite some amazing wood carvings outside the entrance including these Horses below.

We also had a great time watching our visitors handling and feeling all the different qualities of our textiles bed linen and tableware, very tactile visitors who knew quality when they felt it and very discerning, which we enjoyed.

The picture below shows that Chhatwal & Jonsson ‘Old Paisley’ Organic cotton design (far Left hand side), then the smaller motif is the reverse face motif (‘Dara’) of the ‘Sundara’ bed set in a percale cotton 200TC, and on the far right is the Bluebellgray Devon multi coloured Duvet set in a cotton sateen material, then the Bluebellgray ‘Taransay’ multi coloured Duvet set in a cotton sateen material.

Bohzaar brings Colour to the RHS Malvern Spring Show (Pt1)

Well we have just finished 4 hectic days at the RHS Malvern Spring show at the Three Counties show ground Worcestershire.

Malvern RHS Spring Show

Malvern RHS Spring Show

We met hundreds of great Textile Fans and took great pleasure and pride in showing our New Bohzaar collection. We would like to thank every visitor who took the 5 minutes in their busy show day to give us some great feedback and lovely comments.

The reaction was very positive and lots of smiling faces, and all the visitors to our stand in the Wye hall appreciated the opportunity to handle and feel our different fabrics and learn about our big journey to find the best Bed linen from around the World (including the UK!) in some amazing colours.

CEZcmA2W8AAd2H_

This was our first ever public show with the new collection, and being mainly online usually, it was great to meet regular interior design craft friends face to face and meet hopefully new fans as well. We are really looking forward to locating a new retail premises locally where we can show our full range of bed linen and new products groups such as beds, furniture, increased Fabric collection and interior trims, beads, ‘pom pom’s’ etc for all you crafters that we met this week. Our delay has been in finding; a site big enough for the full range, high quality natural light (essential for any textile company) and sufficient visitor parking right outside, but we are hopeful that this year we will solve this challenge too.

Ok so lets start a recap on this years 2015 RHS spring show, Flowers, shrubs hard graft, Skill, Talent and zillions of TLC has yet again gone into creating an amazing show, and such a great venue with our famous Malvern Hills as a backdrop, we live locally so we get to see the Hills every morning from home, and while working in Malvern and the surrounding area, we are very lucky really. But for 9 hours of the day we were just as happy to be showing our New Colours, patterns and discussing latest Textile trends with every one.

paulinaarcklin-bohzaar-4494_1_large

We showed our New Sundara collection in an Old French Grey colour with the New ‘Harmony’ Fuchsia Pink bed Quilt, nearly every body passing the stand who stopped to touch and stroke the Harmony Quilt commented on how soft and gentle it felt. We explained how we had commissioned it from one of Jaipur’s leading ‘master block printers’, each quilt is hand blocked printed on large tables then left to dry naturally in the hot sun, the cotton is the best natural cotton and even the inside of the quilt is real natural cotton, thus keeping you warm and yet feeling very light when sleeping under it.

paulinaarcklin-bohzaar-4627_large

The Harmony Quilt was laid across our demo single bed which was showing our New Sundara Duvet with a larger motif set on the front face and the smaller Dara motif on the rear face, we have had this new duvet set made in the UK  at one of England’s leading Traditional cotton Textile printers, we chose the best Percale cotton in a genuine 200 thread count, which once handled is a pleasure to feel and will give you years of use and pleasure. The duvet sets are available in Single, Double, King & SuperKing sizes, with a  matching Oxford Pillowcases.

We also showed how you could mix and match various different throws, quilts and colourful blankets to complement your bedroom or change the mood.

Also very popular was our display of the English designed Bluebellgray bed linen collection, this  Intense ‘Water colour collection’ was created by Fiona Douglas a brilliant talented young water colourist from Scotland.

devon_main_pic_6_resized

We had many eager visitors handling the four different designs of Taransay, Devon, Abstract and Mode collections. taransay_bed_linen_listing_resized

The designs are skillfully digitally printed onto the duvet sets at one of Europe’s leading factories, they have to be seen and handled to appreciate how beautiful the colours are and how soft they are to sleep in .

These four designs are printed on a lovely Sateen 100% cotton, with great detailing such as her lovely real buttons on the flap and a different colour design on the rear face so in effect like the above Sundara you get two bedroom looks for the investment of one duvet bed set. Please note that on our website the final price includes the two pillowcases on the Double, King & Superking sizes (and one on the single included as well), as many other sites do not include the pillowcase in their offerings.

We are sorry we were unable to sell straight off the stand but space constraints prevented us from having the levels of stock we would have needed, but we carry good stock levels in our textile warehouse in Malvern which enables us to deliver across the UK via DPD couriers in usually 2 to 3 days. We have regular fresh supplies from all over Europe arriving weekly so if the size you require has sold out we can quickly satisfy your requests.

Welcome to the Bohzaar Blog

“Explore the World – and bring it home with Bohzaar”

Julia and Dylan, the founders of Bohzaar, are two designers from very different backgrounds but with a shared vision and a love of gorgeous textiles.  The eclecticism of the bohemian lifestyle and the global treasures of the bazaar are brought to together under one brand: Bohzaar

Bohzaar was born from a challenge: how do we find the perfect bedding set that is well-made, sumptuous to sleep in and unique?  We couldn’t find it, so we decided to create our own.

Over two years and many late nights with hundreds of hours of research and styling later we are now launching our “Bohzaar Collection”.

The first two textile designs are “Sundara & Dara” (an Indian-themed flower motif in Old French Grey)

and “Nomads Panthera Ikat” (a monochrome bold black on white).

We are also stocking some amazing fabrics from England, Italy and Central Europe, as well as beautiful duvet sets with matching cushions and throws and some very high-quality blanket throws for your lounge or bedroom.

Brands we represent (such as Bluebellgray, Chhatwal & Jonsson and Lovely Linen) have been featured in some of Europe’s top design magazines and shows.  Other newer brands will be shown this year for the first time in the UK.
