This week's blog delves into the wonderful world of fabric design. Searching for inspiration this morning, I found myself surrounded by swatch-books containing some of the most unique and beautiful fabrics from our current range. We pride ourselves on sourcing fabrics from today's best designers, so I say it's time to pay homage to the creative genius behind the contemporary florals and classic damasks. Over a series of blogs we will be celebrating some of today's top fabric designers! Starting with one of the UK's best known design houses... Sanderson.
With over 160 years experience in the design industry, it's no surprise that Sanderson are one of the UK's leading design houses today. Culminating quintessentially British design with new and modern elements, their designs attract all ages.
They explain more about their style and ethos on their website: “We draw on the creativity of young contemporary designers, alongside the work of artists and historical documents. This mix creates new and directional designs for modern living.”
One of Sanderson's most recent popular designs Wilhelmina has been greatly received by the British public and home decor industry alike, created by combining elements from two William Morris designed embroideries, this design is cropping up everywhere from teacups to wallpaper. As a result, Wilhelmina is one of our most popular Sanderson designs for loose covers, re-upholstery and curtains.
