Parkside launches Barneby Gates range

Parkside launches Barneby Gates range

September 2019

Parkside has collaborated with leading design duo Barneby Gates, on a collection that brings the pair’s stunning wallpaper patterns to porcelain tiles.

In the Barneby Gates collection, the tile specification company has translated eight bold and courageous designs onto extra-large format porcelain tiles measuring 1,000 by 500mm or 2,500 by 1,000mm, creating the effect of wallpaper on a high-performance, commercial-ready tile.

Ideal for features in bar areas, spas, bathrooms and lobbies; the range faithfully recreates designs such as Watermelon, Pheasant and Bolt from Mars.

With backgrounds in the home lifestyle press and decorative arts, Vanessa Barneby and Alice Gates  have forged a reputation for forward-thinking fabric and wallpaper designs that have received widespread acclaim.

Whether reinventing traditional motifs for modern interiors with Deer Damask or taking on trends with Pineapple and Watermelon; the pair’s distinctive designs are notably outside of the norm. In collaborating with Parkside, Barneby Gates is bringing its unique style to a commercial finish that offers moisture-resistance, durability and easy maintenance.

Vanessa Barneby and Alice Gates comment: “Our designs celebrate the life-affirming positivity of pattern and colour and we’re delighted to have worked with Parkside to bring our style to a broader range of environments. The notion of wallpaper on a tile is a great way to bring continuous pattern to areas where its traditionally been off-limits and we look forward to seeing our designs in commercial interiors wanting to make a statement.”

The Barneby Gates collection launched at the opening of Parkside’s new Design Studio in the Cotswolds and will be on display throughout London Design Festival (14th to 22nd September) at the company’s Chelsea Design Studio.

Mark Williams, Sales and Design Director for Parkside, says: “We’re thrilled to be bringing Barneby Gates’ designs to the Parkside portfolio. The pair’s designs are certainly uplifting and have been at the heart of many fearless schemes, so we’re ready to see how they can be embraced in commercial locations with the practicality of a porcelain tile construction.”

At just 3.5mm thick, the Barneby Gates tile collection is suitable for internal walls, is easy to install and available to order exclusively from Parkside.
