PARKSIDE OPENS NEW COTSWOLDS DESIGN STUDIO

Parkside, the design-led tile specification company serving architects, designers, contractors and developers, has formally opened its Cotswolds Design Studio.

Parkside, the design-led tile specification company serving architects, designers, contractors and developers, has formally opened its Cotswolds Design Studio.

The new Design Studio is the fourth in the Parkside portfolio and once again demonstrates the company’s dedication to provide inspirational spaces for the architecture and design communities. The ability to see the tile collections displayed and to have in-house support has been an invaluable element in Parkside’s existing Design Studios in Clerkenwell, Chelsea and Leicester.

On opening, Parkside launched the exclusive Barneby Gates tile collection, a collaboration that sees the design duo’s stunning wallpaper patterns on extra-large-format porcelain tiles. The bold and courageous collection focuses on colourful and playful patterns and represents Parkside’s mission to offer distinctive tile collections.

The Design Studio provides an impressive 300m² of space. Continuing the theme from its Clerkenwell Design Studio of treating tiles like pieces of art, Parkside has framed extra-large format porcelain slabs (measuring 3200 x 1600mm) around the edge of the space to provide a dramatic impact upon entering. Display boards of varying sizes sit in front and are grouped by style for easier browsing. A freestanding island unit in the centre of the space houses a meeting room for up to 14 as well as an informal meeting space on top with impressive views out over the rolling Cotswolds hills. The intention is for the space to be used as a hub for the design community with free wi-fi, great coffee and plenty of working space in a relaxed, creative environment.

Sarah Holey, Marketing Manager at Parkside, commented: “Many of the intricacies of modern tile surfaces need to be seen up close to be truly appreciated and we have seen a continued demand from our clients to engage with our products first hand. Our Cotswolds Design Studio was an obvious progression in providing an invaluable hub for those looking for professional support from our Parkside team. There’s a wide choice of inspirational displays which will show visitors how tiles can provide impact and spark creativity for inventive interior projects.”
