A journey in colour, taken together.

A fantasy of travel through colour escapism with a focus on structure and composition, this is the culmination of a two year adventure uniting two designers. The collaboration explores global representation of colour as a form of expression, reimagining traditional weaving and embroidery techniques to find a shared creative identity, steeped in heritage.

With colour and composition at its core, this bold collection sees the introduction of a woven diamond pattern. Four designs introduce ten new vibrant hues to the exclusive Roger Oates Design palette to create a contemporary collection full of energy and excitement.

From vivid brights to muted tones and fine textures to bold stripes, there is real versatility to the designs which is testament to the layering of pattern and careful placement of colour.

‘The diamond is at the heart of the collaboration. It was central to our first meetings, it challenged us to bring a whole new structure to Roger Oates flatweave, and it has rightly become the symbol of this collection.’ – Andy Guard

2021 Roadshow is Postponed


The Taste of Design roadshow has been postponed for a second year running due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

When we began planning for our 2021 roadshow, we felt optimistic that we would be able to proceed with our plans as usual. However, as it stands today, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide our attendees with the same unique, hands-on experience that they have come to expect from our events. For that reason, it is with great regret that we must let you know that this year’s events will not take place.

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing everyone next year.

Chase Erwin: Jass Press Release


Embrace Dunes sofa, Ray Tinna and Molecule cushions

Chase Erwin presents a bold new collection; Jass. The inspiration for this collection came to Ragna, our founder, as she was driving in the countryside listening to a radio programme discussing the origins of the word Jazz, the music genre, and its later connotations in music.

What she discovered was that the word Jazz was believed to have derived from American slang from the late 1800’s, meaning spirited, energetic and peppy. This sparked the idea to create a lively collection of luxury textiles that would be fun and playful. It features some wonderful statement pieces that give a sophisticated retro edge to Chase Erwin’s signature aesthetic.

Jass is the namesake of the collection because it most embodies the energy and spirit of these new fabrics. It’s a sophisticated, striking pattern shot through with some lively new colours.
