Icon Inc

Opening in September 2015, IconInc, The Edge, provides luxury student accommodation to the standard of a Boutique Hotel.

Owned by Leeds’ leading property developer, Parklane Properties, The Edge offers 7 Star student accommodation across 3 property types, Smart and Elegance Studios and The Grande Apartment.  Parklane have just been awarded a prestigious Northern Design Award for the Interior Design Concept, which redefines Student Living. The Edge includes a fully quipped gym, private cinema and an all inclusive food package.


Having worked with Parklane on other projects, Skopos were asked by designer at Parklane, Rachel Cook, to provide a solution for drapery across all rooms at The Edge, something that would fit with the 3 colour schemes across the site (a scheme for each apartment).


The designer chose fabric from Skopos’ Etienne Collection for the curtains in the 3 apartment types, giving a natural Linen-look addition to the interiors, supporting the colours of the brand.  Each eyelet curtain was designed with a contrasting top border. Colours Chosen were Maize, Tropica and Aquarium, keeping to the  yellow, blue and purple schemes across the building. In preparation for the opening Skopos provided a measure, curtain make-up and fitting service in order to meet tight deadlines.
