This month sees Mamas & Papas launch a collaboration with stylish interiors brand Niki Jones. Here at Ideal Home we're big fans of Niki Jones homeware, with its signature look of rich pigments, textures, pom-poms and pattern. The range, inspired by Creative Director Niki’s passion for traditional textile techniques, illustrates a passion for pattern.
The beauty of such a collaboration is the opportunity to give nurseries a stylish and sophisticated feel, suiting a more grown-up taste. The nursery no longer has to sit juxtaposition to the rest of your interior decor.
The collection of nursery accessories was designed to allow parents to be ‘really bold and do things in that room that you might not do in the rest of your house; maybe be a bit more playful and a bit more daring’, according to Niki.
The collection embodies both the vibe of the Niki Jones brand and Mamas & Papas’ design ethos, ‘Designed for parents, by parents’.
Being a mum herself, Niki’s own experience was a major influence when designing the collection. The notion of nostalgia is a narrative that runs throughout the new range. The collection exploring how objects grow up with the parent and child, in turn, capturing memories. The accessories were designed to be timeless, treasured for years to come.The collection embodies both the vibe of the Niki Jones brand and Mamas & Papas’ design ethos, ‘Designed for parents, by parents’.
