One of the latest additions to Bethan Gray’s Shamsian Collection is their new Monochrome finish, shown here on the 3-door Nizwa cabinet. The detailing takes inspiration from the architectural patterning of the Nizwa Fort in Oman. Elegantly crafted using brass overlay, the repeating pattern on Bethan’s Nizwa pieces reflect the rounded architectural composition of the fort’s castellation. The Nizwa collection is made with beautiful maple veneer sourced from Italy and the ombré effect on the cabinet is created by hand using a technique called stain shading.
KPPR have been managing a publicity campaign for award-winning South African stand-up Trevor Noah, ahead of his first ever UK arena date – a now sold out show at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday 19th May 2018. Having sold out his stand up shows across five continents, Noah’s appeal has rocketed even further over the past two years, since he took over hosting duties from Jon Stewart on Comedy Central’s Emmy Award-winning news satire programme The Daily Show in the US, in September 2015. This will be the first time in two and a half years that the celebrated comedian has performed in the UK.
