Design Newsflash

This is just a start of Epiplo Aris' Design Newsflash where we'll be picking out some of the hot faves we've seen out and about. Enjoy!

Over at Elle Decor we captured some of the hottest new furniture for summer from NYDC.com. We are loving these curves at the moment to soften any clean straight lines and the cool, starkness of pale coloured fabrics. As for these Canopy style chairs in lush fabrics & prints, they just rock!

A little detail goes a long way, that's why we're also loving cute pleats, as seen on the runway and upholstery trends.

Dining Chair makeover in a flash!

Hi Everyone,

Phew, what a day. We had a request from a client which required a very quick turn around... We're assuming she was entertaining guests in the next few days. Anyhow, have a peek at the photos of a before and after makeover on a set of dining chairs.

That wasn't the only thing that needed a makeover, our blogspot looked a bit dark and well not exactly what we had in mind, but it had 3 columns which was ideal. Nevertheless, the challenge was on to bring this blog up to date. What do you think?

Need a good nights' sleep?

We pride ourselves on stocking the finest quality brands of mattresses. Since you spend around a third of your life in bed choosing the right bed has never been such an important decision. To help select the perfect bed, we recommend you lie on your back and your side to find the right level of comfort & support. We have put together a guide to the different types of bedding available to ensure you get the best night's sleep possible.

Leading the way in the world of mattresses in Greece are Media Strom, whose aim is to simply "Let them make your life more comfortable and more fulfilling". Extensive research and development has gone into every product to ensure they offer a restful nights sleep for the consumer.


How your mattress feels will depend on the springs and filling. All of our mattresses are available in varying sizes, widths, and are anti-allergy as standard.

Open coil – a traditional spring system which uses high-tensile steel to form a
hard-wearing, comfortable and supportive platform
Continuous link – this is made from a single length of wire ‘knitted’ into a series of interwoven springs, linked vertically rather than horizontally, that feel more responsive than the springs in an open coil mattress
Pocket sprung – rows of smaller, lightweight springs of varying shapes and sizes, each housed separately in a fabric pocket, making the mattress more flexible (good for couples sharing a bed, as the mattress contours to individual body shape)
Memory foam – for space age comfort, try this mattress, made from revolutionary foam originally developed for NASA. It moulds to your shape once warmed by your body heat, to provide great support.
a naturally derived biodegradable product. It comes from the rubber tree. Latex is hypo-allergenic, and breathes to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Bacteria, mildew, and mold cannot live in latex foam. Independent tests prove that latex foam is three times more resistant to dust mites and bacteria than ordinary mattresses. Latex mattresses are the king of all mattresses. Latex and foam mattresses are known to be "no flip" mattresses. The quality of the product is such that it does not require flipping or turning and also has longevity lasting up to 30 years. Suffer from back pain? Look no further; a Latex foam mattress is for you as it naturally adjusts to the contours of your body, providing gentle orthopaedic support that maintains proper spinal alignment without restricting capillary blood flow.

There is a wide range of products from Media Strom available at EpiploAris some of which are shown as below and taken from the Media Strom catalogue (Greece).

Apologies in advance as the photos are not of excellent quality but will hopefully give you a general idea and also it is not translated into English yet. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Please note this page is currently under construction.

If we took a holiday...

It would be here at the lust-worthy Mystique Resort in Santorini, Greece.

This is one of the first installments of stylish hotels with the utmost attention to design, function and use of textures which we would like to share with you.
At Epiplo Aris we are dreaming of a summer holiday and this is one of the most amazing hotels that took our breath away.

Mystique Resort is built on one of the most dramatic cliff faces in Oia, Santorini overlooking the infamous Caldera. To say the least it's set in one of the most beautiful locations on earth. This luxurious hotel was listed in Conde Nast Traveler's Hot List 2008 amongst a large number of acclaimed media titles and there is a reason why.

The hotel design is simply stunning and encapsulates what is best known as 'Cave Art style', with white moulded pieces of furniture made from boulders and headboards made from drift-wood.

This pool captures one of the best views on earth. Dreamy...

Spacious Suites using a mixture of natural textures.

Cocktails are served poolside, what more could you ask for?

There is a subtle romantic air about this place, definitely perfect for a Honeymoon getaway, for more information check out http://www.mystique.gr

Roche Borbois-Sofa inspiration anyone?

International design and furnishings company, Roche Bobois has always been an inspiration in the home interior world. At Epiplo Aris we are always wowed by Roche Bobois' talent for creating amazing concept and design along with the designers they choose to work with. Roche Bobois collections usually consist of varying influences and style, we have selected a few images from the website below to help inspire those who love a bit of contemporary and provincial design when it comes to sofas.

Reiko Kaneko - Designer extraodinaire

This morning, whilst doing our daily rounds of blogs, Epiplo Aris spotted this rather dazzling design by Reiko Kaneko. We love it!

The dapple light is made with Veneer wood (very 70's) and on the inside - a billion pieces of tiny mirror mosaics, kinda like a disco ball. When the lights switched on you get this amazing blast of light smattering the walls. Beautiful!

Aviator Hotel, Farnborough, England

Hello folks,

Now at Epiplo Aris, we have a lot of love for design and stylish Hotels. On a recent visit to the UK for a dear friends surprise birthday we stumbled upon part of the surprise which was a beautiful dinner followed by the party of all parties in one of the most beautiful rooms - The Sky Lounge at the Aviator Hotel.
Ooh and best of all? We were offered one of the suites to stay in after the party... so no late taxi ride for us!

The Aviator Hotel is just one super stylish, contemporary Hotel located in Farnborough, Hampshire, on a privately-owned airport. Surprisingly there was hardly any noise what so ever.

The hotel has been built in the same style as the private jets you can see landing from one of the hotel's wings, purely because The Aviator is an architectural gem built in the shape of an airplane propeller. The interiors are deeply seductive and discreet whilst the suites and bedrooms have a much softer yet warm tones of chocolate and beige.

Time to check out the images!

Living etc magazine-Upholstery article

At Epiplo Aris we love our design and Interior mags from all over the world. When Living etc did this article, we just had to share it with you. Enjoy!


Bold modern fabrics are the trend of the moment so follow our guide of new ways to use them...

Patterned living room
Strong, modern fabrics have spun upholstery back into fashion. Think button backs on slick metal seats, fitted cushions on iconic chairs, fringed stools in sharp, contrasting shades and you have the essence of statement upholstery: confident, contemporary and ultra-sophisticated.

Top tips for making contemporary upholstery work in your home:

  • Graham Noakes, sales and marketing director at Osborne & Little, says, 'A single, bold fabric can be the starting point for a harmonious scheme, providing the pattern doesn't overwhelm the rest of the room.'

  • Try a strongly patterned headboard with a simple bed cover, or a re-covered period chair alongside a plain, contemporary sofa.

  • Don't be afraid to mix fabrics, such as linen with fine silk, or bold florals with stripes

  • When it comes to choosing the colour of a fabric, be inspired by your lifestyle. Look at your wardrobe, a favourite painting or a rug you already have.

  • Order a fabric sample first – the colour may not look the same in your own home as it does in the shop.

  • Remember, if a piece of furniture was manufactured after 1941, you must re-cover it in fire-retardant material.

  • Finally, if you're nervous of having a piece upholstered in a bold fabric, try loose covers.

    We heart Paisley!

    You're probably wondering what's been tickling our taste buds this month, well summer is truly upon us and it's time to get our Outdoor living space spruced and spiced up.

    This month Epiplo Aris have been focusing on their very own Balcony space which is currently a bit of a blank canvas albeit a few pots of plants. So far, we've got two benches which need cushions.

    It was time to do a bit of a recce on outdoor living spaces and also to catch up with our fave design & interior blogs. The little inspiration board above highlights just some of the pictures that caught our attention.

    At Marimekko, bold bright prints were high on the agenda for summer. The Catwalk also showed bold prints, lots of colour and as well as a few paisley prints. There's nothing like a modern take on paisley to update a boho mood. We've opted to go with a sky blue coated fabric for the main seating cushion and a bold modern print for the mini, decorative cushions. Below we've captured some perfect outdoor living spaces from Coco+Kelley who has been deciding what to do with her own patio in the States.

    Oversized paisley print cushions, yes, i think we'll definitely go with that.

    Cushion-less bench!

    Designer cushions

    One client recently requested large cushions as part of the visual merchandising of his shop and came armed with Tommy Hilfiger fabric. See below for the working progress.

    The finished product, but without the foam inside.

    Sofa's galore

    Over the past week, Epiplo Aris have been inundated with Sofa upholstery jobs, here are just a few examples of the work we have been doing.

    BEFORE: Traditional, yet opulent fabric was used.

    Our team carefully removed the old fabric to make way for a more updated, durable fabric and bright colour.


    BELOW: I know it doesn't look like anything yet, but it will soon resemble a set of armchairs!

    New cushions made from medium firm high resilience foam

    Nearly finished. Looks comfy doesn't it?
