Since the 1970s, Corndell has been at the heart of the furniture industry, a trusted and reputable supplier known for its well-crafted ranges of living, dining and bedroom furniture.
One of the most successful Corndell ranges, Nimbus, has been, for years, a must-have oak product. It has over 400 SKUs across dining, living, home office and bedroom, plus mist, oiled, satin and dark finish options, and a wooden and metal handle.
This key USP of choice means that Nimbus provides the retailer with a product range with real depth. This attribute has become increasingly attractive as consumers have grown in confidence, either demanding matching products across a variety of rooms, giving a sleek consistent look to their home or aiming for a mix and match of finish and handle choice.
The reliability of Nimbus also allows consumers to collect the range over a longer time period, attracting them back to their original Nimbus stockist again and again.
With Corndell’s expert understanding of global design trends and specialist finishing capability, the next step in the Nimbus journey was to test the application of Corndell natural paint colours. A sensitive, light-handed paint application was crucial, to enable the fine oak grain to still make an impact through the colour.
Inspired by the Cotswolds countryside on the business’ doorstep, the Corndell palette includes a range of striking shades created to complement both country chic interiors with their mix of natural textures, and sophisticated urban spaces which require a softness to offset the brightness of rooms flooded with light.
The Nimbus colour selection features four colours which are available on every piece in the range, the first of which is Ledum – inspired by a herb with a pale green leaf. It works well against the red brick and different textures and is a soft contrast to an oak top.
The Ivory paint colour helps emphasise the crisp cabinet detailing. The chalky whiteness looks fresh and new and creates a completely different aesthetic for the range. As a contrast to Ivory, Corndell has introduced Charcoal, a rich, deep grey with its darkness providing an ideal foil to smooth oak details.
The final colour in the set, Pewter, is a subtle, soft grey. This modern shade looks striking mixed and matched with Nimbus in Mist finished oak and sits well with on-trend soft furnishings in various shades of grey and woven textures.
Every item in the Nimbus range is available in the painted colour options, and the price for these new colours is in line with the current oiled, mist and dark finishes.
