ZIGZAG STYLE

Zigzag motifs are ‘in’!  Well, they’ve never been ‘out’ to be honest.

We’ve had a long love-affair with the incredible fabrics and clothes produced by the Italian design-house Missoni.  In 2016 we were lucky enough to begin working with the company’s sub-brand Missoni Home.  We love the crazy chevron or zigzag  pattern the company is famous for.  So it was no surprise that Missoni’s imaginative use of this ancient pattern works beautifully on furniture and home accessories.

Pretty and practical: Our latest design-led garden furniture

We’re still deep in garden furniture mode at Go Modern.  As the weather begins to improve (ahem) and the days certainly are longer it’s all about getting back outside, keeping the borders watered and that first cut of the lawn.

We’ve more new outdoor designs to show you here and some of the prettiest furniture we’ve seen in a while, starting with one of our newest partners Saba Italia.  But it’s not just about the aesthetics, striking as they are, as with all our outdoor designs they have to meet our strict criteria for robust materials and advanced technology.

Saba Italia are a young Venetian brand where fashion meets furniture meets – exceedingly good design.  They have produced two new outdoor chairs that are beautifully decorative and quite different from the norm.

INTRODUCING MISSONI HOME FURNITURE

A very BIG announcement from us this month with the introduction of the most iconic of brands: Missoni!  We are thrilled to announce that Go Modern is now partnering with this very special, much loved Italian design house to sell MISSONI HOME FURNITURE.  We’ve been fans forever… so there’s much excitement in our bit of the Kings Road!

Missoni, as you are probably aware, was established in the 1950s as a small knitware business and grew to be the internationally recognized fashion brand.  Its colourful zigzag motifs, stripes, waves and patchworks of geometrics and florals are instantly recognisable. The Missoni Home line followed some years later, when the company’s beautiful fabrics were successfully transferred to a large collection of small home accessories.
