Traditional or Contemporary?

Our product focus today is on Cole & Son wallpapers. Established in 1873, the Cole & Son archive consists of approximately 1,800 block print designs, 350 screenprint designs and a huge quantity of original drawings and wallpapers, representing all the styles from the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries.

Amongst these are some of the most important historic wallpaper designs in the world. Coles is now the prime source for entirely authentic period wallpapers printed by the original method and has provided wallpapers for many historic houses, including Buckingham Palace and the White House.

The magnificent archive is the major source of all Cole’s new collections, and designs are re-interpreted in both pattern and proportion to retain the original character, but add a contemporary edge.

These wallpapers also work particularly well in modern homes, which are a blank canvas, as they help to add depth and character to any decoration scheme.
