Let's Go Poolside. Introducing KØBN by Sophie Matson.
“It kills me to see overtly branded, garishly patterned, beach purposed towels destroy great interior styling, so I decided to do something about it.”
So said Købn Founder and Creative Director, Sophie Matson. We at Dwell Store said ... "Hoorah".
We're thrilled to share with you the latest edition to the Dwell Store edit, the debut Købn collection.
The name Købn comes from the Danish word for Copenhagen; København.
New Australian textile label Købn brings Copenhagen-style poolside.
Købn’s muted colour palette, inspired by the streets of Copenhagen, is an aesthetic revelation for design-obsessed home owners who wish to carry their interior styling from the house to the pool deck.
“Australians do indoor-outdoor living so well and swimming pools are a beautiful focal point but so many well considered interiors are destroyed when the towels come out,” says Matson.
Købn fills the gap in the market for beautifully designed pool towels in keeping with your interior aesthetic.
THE FOUNDER & DESIGNER
Sophie Matson is a homewares veteran.
She spent twelve years as Senior Textile Designer for the Australian retailer, Country Road. During these years she helmed a highly successful textile range. Matson’s unique eye evolved the brands iconic beach towels, her innate affinity with print and palette cementing them as a style staple for design-centric beach lovers.
Matson always knew she would champion her own label. Købn is the expression of her well-honed vision producing considered designs in the highest quality fabrics.
Every detail of Købn’s debut range is thoughtfully considered.
The colours of the collection are influenced by architectural details and hues of nature - raw terracotta and rich clays, desert dunes and lime-washed walls. Not limited to the beach or pool, the lush, neutral tones have been considered to work as beautifully indoors as outdoors.
The towels are reversible, with one side terry and one side plain weave, a finish more akin with interior fabrics. They feature raw edge fringing and drop pile stripes (stripes being a Matson signature).
"The towels are crafted by a family-owned mill in Denizli, Turkey, a region synonymous with high quality textiles, ensuring impeccable fabrication and ethical production," says Matson.
Light weight but super absorbent, the generous 100 x 180cm towels are light enough to pop in your tote and ferry to lunchtime yoga, the beach or the park.
Following the success of Købn’s debut release, we're excited for the upcoming Summer 18/19 collection. Due to land in late Spring, rich new colours have been added to compliment the existing range, plus the introduction of a smaller sized towel designed with children in mind.
