New Collections: Sanderson

We all know Sanderson, the traditionally English fabric house renowned for its linens, printed floral chintz linens that is, people still to this day request Sanderson linen when having there sofa’s re-upholstered ‘do you have any Sanderson Linens,  I had this sofa upholstered in Sanderson linen 20 years ago now and look how good it is”.

No longer is Sanderson only the home of printed chintz, the company originally started in 1860 manufacturing wallpaper is now an internationally recognised fabric, wallpaper, paint, bed linen and tableware company. There latest collection ‘Colour for Living’ is fun, vibrant and youthful with modern takes on traditional floral and a unique combination of patterns and colour that could cater for myself as a nearly 30 year old or no doubt by mother or grandmother.  I suppose that sort of talent in catering for the majority comes from over 150 years in the industry!

A little birdy told me....

Have we always liked birds? I don’t know what has happened, maybe it’s like when you buy a particular car and then you see that car everywhere, maybe I have gotten on the bird bandwagon and now I see them everywhere? I don’t know, I have loved birds for ages but I don’t think I have ever noticed as many fabrics on the market featuring these beautiful little creatures as I do now. Maybe it’s their beautiful colour spectrum that we are drawn to or maybe it’s that flighty ‘I can fly away anytime I like’ thing that draws us to them. Either way birds are featured on textiles in every colour spectrum and in just about every species and add an elegant, whimsical touch to interiors.

You already know I am a sucker for a matching wallpaper and fabric, isn't this colour punch spectacular! And the gorgeous birds a little surprise for the one who takes a closer look.

Thibaut matched upholstery and wallpaper. This has me thinking, do I love the bird or the birdcage more?
