We have been asked for a coordinating wallpaper to “Enter the Dragons” since its launch in 2011, and this season has presented the perfect opportunity.I have altered the repeat, removing the wide borders so it is easier to use on the wall,and recreated four of the original colourways. Printed on super wide non-woven paper and sold by the meter it brings elegant drama to any room.
Agra is based on the classic hand knotted Indian rugs of the same name. The texture of the stitch is reproduced here to create a wall covering with a damask like effect. Some of the colours have a soft lustre giving an elegant feel, whilst other colourways such as yellow with palest grey, and emerald with peacock have a drier finish.
The beauty of this design is its simplicity - a really useable scale, that looks as good on a large wall as it does in a more intimate space, combined with a stunning colour palette. The simple motif has been surface printed on a non woven wallpaper to accentuate the hand blocked look. This design works beautifully with the corresponding printed fabric.
To retain the openness and flow of the coordinating fabric of the same name, we have printed this paper on a 27”/64cm wide roll. This larger scale also allows for all the subtle watercolour detail of the original artwork to shine through. The tree of life pattern creates a gentle trail across the wall, several of the colourways highlighted by pearlescent highlights.
This is a more architectural and smaller scale of the no9 fabric of the same name. The original was based on a Chinese fretwork screen, painted big and bold and this version takes the same inspiration but is cleaner and makes the perfect wallpaper. Among the exciting colourways is a billiard room green and white - a true classic.
Another screen inspired design, Hainan has a convincing 3-D effect. The printing technique combines two different processes where the final
colour is surface printed, leaving a hand made detail. There is a huge variety within the offering of colourways from white, beige and silver to a
symphony of saturated blues.
This scale of design was hugely popular in the ‘70s, endlessly adaptable as a faux plain. We decided toupdate the idea by using a small geometric motif on a plain ground. It gives extra interest to the idea of a plain wall, and the metallic colourways have an intriguing play of light and shadow.
A dramatic trellis wainscoting to the base is sketched in with a thick, loaded brush. The panels are a huge 3.4m high, to give our clients as much flexibility as possible and both colourways have a slightly paler and fresher colour palette to their fabric counterparts, CHINESE PANEL. If the panels are too tall just cut off the trellis and use it for an adjoining room, around a door frame or on wardrobe doors!
