Given the Chinese New Year – now is the perfect time to share with you this wonderful Chinese Toile.
An early Cole & Son print, has been given a fresh take for todays interior whilst retaining the oriental bearing of its past. A popular style in Victorian times, this orientalist design features pastoral vignettes of Far Eastern life in hues of charcoal, Chinese red, ivory and drawing room blue.
Archive Anthology Collection brings together a selection of Cole & Son’s most popular and well-known classic wallpapers, whilst also introducing several designs from their extensive archives.
Combining surface and flexographic printing techniques, this anthology revisits old favourites including Hummingbirds, Madras Violet and Egerton, giving them a fresh and up to date colour palette, whilst at the same time presenting several new designs such as Florencecourt and Strawberry Tree which aim to further enhance and promote the Cole & Son archive legacy.
