Scarlet Splendour - Snow White collection

Artefatto designs fluffy furniture

Indian brand Scarlet Splendour has launched a collection of opulent furniture and accessories all made from clouds of fluffy sheepskin and splashes of radiant gold.

The range includes a sofa, armchair, rug, side tables and a coat hanger, all created by London design studio Artefatto. The seats have delicate gold frames with cushions that are upholstered in lavish, overflowing sheepskin. There are two different heights and diameters for the cylindrical side tables, both in a gold finish and an optional furry top. The rug is a piece of sheepskin with a mound at one end that you can lean back on, and the coat hanger has a gold stand with a ring of hooks just beneath an elegant gold cage that’s perched on top like a birdcage.

Artefatto used dramatic and indulgent materials in this collection to capture the extravagance of ancient Greek and Latin cultures, which incorporated glory and mythology into everyday life.

Scarlet Splendour was founded by siblings Ashish Bajoria and Suman Kanodia in 2014. They grew up in Kolkata, India, and set out to be one of the first Indian furniture brands, making maximalist pieces that are both usable and dramatic. Its debut collection was created by Italian designer Matteo Cibic, and the brand has since worked with other internationally acclaimed figures including Slovenian designer Nika Zupanc.
