Home Living : May 8th 2012
2 HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, May 8, 2012 MB RULE BRITANNIA BRITISH RULE GIFTS AND HOMEWARES Jan Constantine's British-themed homeware collections. UNION JACKS ARE ALL THE RAGE Susan Redman BEST OF BRITISH Jan Constantine won a licence to produce collections for this year's Olympic Games and Paralympic Games in London. For more information, phone Outliving on 1300 760 186 or visit www.outliving.com.au ALL this talk about the upcoming London Olympics has designers crazy about every- thing British. From the Keep Calm & Carry On range of mugs and textiles to Jan Constantine's soft furnishings sporting Union Jack icon- ography, British-themed homewares are more popular than ever. Chintzy cushions sport corgies and bulldogs, while images of London land- marks, such as Big Ben or Buckingham Palace, are being printed on wallpapers and curtains, crockery and stationery. The British emblems are not new but are gaining ground as fresh designs appear -- no doubt intended to cash in on the mood during this Olympic and Jubilee year. Royal-themed designs dominate, with the ubiquitous British flag of the Union Jack emblazoned on furniture as disparate as side tables and wingback chairs. And there's no getting away from royal red, white and blue, although subversive colour palettes exist, just as some of the designs display more than a nod, and a ripped raw finish, to punk culture. In the kitchen, proud British loyalists and monarchists can permanently fly the Union Jack if they invest in Smeg's retro refrigerator from the Fab 28 range. Rule Britannia indeed.
