Upholstery and decorative fabrics are a great helper in decorating and furnishing our interiors. They are the icing on the cake for us, which will fine-tune and conjure up the right atmosphere and really complete the interior tone: harmonizing the interior into one beautiful whole.
The style of old England and so-called English fabric are among the very popular interior styles of our customers. English upholstery and decorative fabrics are characterized by earthy colors and classic patterns such as Houndstooth, Herringbone, Scottish plaids, and also beautiful prints on fabrics.
To this day, we draw inspirations from the decorative “Arts and Crafts” movement that dominated England and beyond in the second half of the 19th century. Leading designers, artists and craftsmen of the time blurred the line between fine and decorative arts. They left us real gems on printed and woven fabrics, wallpapers, carpets and embroidery, which still breathtakingly decorate our interiors.
Among the leading designers of the time was the artist and writer William Morris, whose production influenced the interiors of the early 20th century as well as English horticulturalists. His designs drew inspiration from his deep knowledge of English gardens. His 50 or so wallpaper designs depict stylised evocations of mostly English wilds: roses, acorns, blackthorns and tulips. His first wallpaper design from 1862 called “Trellis”depicts a rose bush in bloom weaving through a wooden trellis.
We very much like this slogan of William Morris: ‘Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be beautiful or believe to be useful’.
