Following the success of Sofa in a Box, Gallery Direct’s first Design Project – a series of projects combining exclusive design with practical solutions to everyday problems – the supplier is set to introduce the next one this month…
The upcoming launch is Packed-Flat, which features an extensive collection of furniture, offering 12 ranges, plus other pieces, with varied styles to suit different interiors. All are designed to offer easy delivery to any room in any property. They require less packaging, and are also freight friendly, as they need less space for shipping, thus reducing their environmental impact. All the pieces require easy home assembly, but come complete with the tools required.
MD Peter Delaney says: “We are delighted to announce our second Design Project, Packed-Flat, which offers an eclectic mix of furniture, combining bold colours and shapes to fit all spaces. We have created a range of furniture like no other we’ve collated before. Easy to build and easy to place, our Packed-Flat collection is a commercial, modern and design-led solution to quality flat-packed, self-assembly furniture. It’s such a departure from traditional KD furniture that we wanted a new but simple twist to the collection name, hence Packed-Flat!”
One of the ranges within this new project is Holbrook, which offers a selection of living furniture in a choice of colours, from a soft mint green to a deep bold blue. Open areas of the back on many pieces add interest and a feeling of space, ideal for an apartment living vibe.
The cabinets combine colour and shape to great effect, with a routed geometric circular pattern on the doors which has a hint of Bauhaus influence, and brass handles are complemented by brass ‘socks’ on the solid oak legs.
For a striking contemporary look, the Holsen collection features a slatted design on the cabinet doors and display unit to add interest. Crafted using solid oak for the slats, and oak veneers, the matt black finish shows the grain of the wood and pairs perfectly with the matt black metal legs. Matt black solid oak handles add the finishing touch on the cabinets.
Barbican (pictured atop this story) is another of the new ranges. The eye-catching pieces combine black oak and walnut veneers with black metal for a contemporary look. Cut-out circular handles with a wood panel behind add an interesting and unusual design feature.
Packed-Flat is part of Gallery’s SS22 Collection, which features over 1300 new lines across several product categories. To be among the first to view the new range, visit Gallery at The Online Furniture Show, on stand 7A30-B31 at Spring Fair, or at the front of Hall 2 (stand 2-E40) at the rescheduled January Furniture Show this April.
