Designer Loves: Suzy Hoodless
As part of its First Look initiative, the Design Centre asked top designers to choose their favourite products from spring/summer 21’s collections. Discover Suzy Hoodless’ edit below, as well as her stand-out fabric from the showrooms and her thoughts on colour.
Is there a particular piece out of the products you’ve chosen that you can’t wait to put in a scheme? How do you envision using it?
I love the Schumacher ‘Domino Epingle’ fabric: the graphic imagery and monochrome palette with red highlights appeals to me. It would look amazing on Vaughan’s ‘Broughton’ bobbin chair.
Did you discover anything on the First Look colour wheel that surprised you?
I love the variety presented: plains, prints, weaves, outdoor and indoor furniture, lighting. The extensive presentation is wonderful and there is lots for everyone.
Is there a colour you are consistently drawn to in your work?
I love all colours, and I love mixing them together. It’s incredibly mood evoking. I use blues a lot, as well as yellows, pinks and greens. I want warm colours as I want to create rooms that are welcoming and comfortable.
What timeless colour should we all be embracing this year?
For timeless, I love monochrome, it’s modern and super elegant.
