The top interior design brands to see at the Monaco Yacht Show 2017
While the main draw of the Monaco Yacht Show may be the displays of top new yachts and the largest yachts for sale, if you’re not in the market for a new vessel then there are plenty of interior brands in attendance just ready and waiting to inspire your new season overhaul. Click through to see the superyacht interior design brands to know this year…
British fine linen brand Heirlooms will make its 15th appearance at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2017 and, to mark the occasion, will be showcasing a collection of bed linens inspired by the Jardin Exotique du Monaco. Alongside fine cotton and linen fabrics embroidered or printed with botanical motifs will be a follow-up to last year’s Safari bath linen for children featuring cactus characters named Pedro and Valentina. Heirlooms will also be displaying the result of a recent collaboration with porcelain painter Christiane von Trapp in which the brand created a range of table linens to complement von Trapp’s Alpine-inspired tableware.

Fine art and interiors brand Crystal caviar will be showcasing the works of two of its best known artists – Vlastimil Beránek and Jan Frydrych – at the Monaco Yacht Show 2017. Beránek’s work will be represented by his huge crystal sculpture Open Space which is crafted from milky aquamarine Bohemian crystal, measures in at 66cm in diameter and has been rigorously tested to ensure it is suitable for the interior of any superyacht. Frydrych, meanwhile, has teamed up with Thomas Mercer to create a magnificent table chronometer made from titanium-coated optical glass. This meeting of precision timekeeping and fine glasswork shouldn’t be missed, with Crystal Caviar commenting that MYS 2017 is the first – and probably last – time the piece will be on display.

Hong Kong-based carpet specialist Tai Ping will be presenting a new collection of designs created with yachts in mind at Monaco. The range, named Floe, comprises 18 designs inspired by the panoramas of Iceland and comprising such disparate elements as oversized flowers, geometric patterns and abstract prints formed from the fluid shapes of fjords and the sharp angles of light filtering through ice. Created in Tai Ping’s new Field yarn, which has been vigorously tested for outdoor use on board yachts, Floe’s colour palette runs from ice blue to rich amethyst through turquoise and navy with hints of vivid pinks and reds contrasted with grey, cream and white.

This year Tuuci will be showcasing its Ocean Master Max cantilever – a large canopy-style shade which seamlessly blends art and engineering in a stunning yet understated package. Built in polished and anodised marine-grade aluminium with a telescopic oval-shaped mast inspired by sailing yachts, its clever design also features a side post making it suitable for use almost anywhere on your yacht.

British interior design and furniture brand Linley will be highlighting its expertise in woodwork craftsmanship with two new hero products on display at the Monaco Yacht Show 2017. The Odyssey desk, built in hand-dyed marine blue eucalyptus with leather detailing, is inspired by the ripples of the ocean's waves and has been designed to stand in the centre of a room and be admired from all angles. The Cassiopeia screen (pictured above), meanwhile, is a further demonstration of the skillful marquetry for which Linley has become famed. An especially popular bespoke commission for superyachts, this room-diving screen features a recreation of Jonathan Yeo's 1999 artwork Scarlett (Cassiopeia Study) in wooden marquetry using 40 different types of veneer while the reverse is clad in Connolly leather and acts as a valet with coat hook, hanger, mirror, accessory tray and shelves for glasses and decanters.
