In the world of Event Decor we crave the sparkle, the pretty and the unusual so we LOVE the unique fine event Linens from Gilded Linens.
With an elegant and unique portfolio that is unrivalled in the UK their 2014 collection features sequins, chevrons, stripes and rosettes.
Its been a growing trend in the UK since Pinterest became popular, and Brides and Grooms are clamouring for beautiful event linens to compliment their Big Days.
This year with metallics being massive the need for sequins and glitz grows.
I had a wee chat to owner Bee to find all about this flourishing Business…
Who are you, and what do you Do?
“I am Bee, and I own Gilded Linens, purveyors of the most fabulous fashion forward linens, embracing the latest designs and fabrics available.”
“My services include tablecloths and table runners, linens for hire, linens for purchase, and speciality linen sourcing.
“All our linens are fashion forward Pinterest style designs.”
“We are based in Cardiff.”
How did Gilded Linens come about?
“The business kind of came about after the office I was working at was shut down and everyone was made redundant.”
“I was a software engineer in Cardiff, working for a large American corporation.”
“We made apps for the iPad that were based around social entertainment, and I was also was on maternity leave at the time too!”
“Since my own wedding almost 4 years ago, I’ve been obsessed with wedding decor.”
“I thought this was just a faze that would fizzle out after our nuptials but it never did!”
“I saw an opportunity to bring American style wedding linens to the UK and just went for it. I did the market research and as I suspected, so many brides wanted what they were seeing on Pinterest.”
What Inspires You ?
“My personal style is very much minimalistic, clean lines and hotel finish!”
“I love the subtle elegance of a hint of sparkle our beautiful sequin linens give.”
“My inspiration is really two fold. There are a few major linen businesses in the US that I look toward for the hottest trends – they are Wildflower Linen and La Tavola.”
“Imagine show stopping linens paired with clear ghost chairs. Fabulous and dreamy!!”
“I also love everything Kelly Hoppen. She ruffles my feathers when it comes to interior design.”
Do trends influence your work?
“We believe that our wonderful Gilded Collection, provides something for every taste. For now we are follow trends but we have big ideas for the future!”
“In terms of what I’d like to see next? I’d love to start offering my brides the strong graphic print linens – think Moroccan tile prints that have been so uber cool in home decor this past year.”
“I’d love to start filtering those looks through into 2014/2015 wedding looks.”
“I think we need to start embracing these exciting fabrics instead of shying away!”
What is your Top tip for Wedding Linens?
“The best advice I can give is to consider both your colour palette and your centrepieces.”
“Will the linens work with those – I always feel less is more.”
“If the sequin tablecloth looks too heavy with your centrepieces then perhaps opt for a layered table runner.”
“Layering is fabulous and it will still make an impact!”
Whats the future for Gilded Linens?
“The future is to grow our business and our Gilded Collection.”
“We love what we do and we love our brides – we want to make sure we offer the best service available.”
