The Design Archives is launching its paper backed fabric collection at Decorex this September.

The vibrant Tree of Life Turquoise paper-backed fabric makes a fantastic wall covering.  Be bold and pair it with curtains in Milano stripe.  WOW!

Fabric walling creates a luxurious effect and provide a finish to a room that paints and papers can never achieve.  Fabric offers versatility in the use of patterns and different textures that will enhance a design scheme in everything from a formal room to a small cloakroom. It also offers sound absorbing and insulating qualities.

As an alternative to battening, fabric can be paper backed which is applied with specialist adhesive to any vertical surface.  The Design Archives has now created a paper backed range of its iconic designs.

“Our bold and colourful designs look stunning on walls,” says Sharon Crowson, founder of The Design Archives. “We have papered a huge space for a client in Switzerland in our graceful Grosvenor design and it looks fabulous!”

The Design Archives was established in 2016 by Sharon who has over thirty years experience working in the textile industry, primarily with Crowson Fabrics, at one time the largest fabric company in Europe. She inherited a vast archive of heritage designs, some dating back to 17c.  She selected some of the most vibrant hand-painted documents, which have been painstakingly redrawn and re-coloured to give them relevance to a modern interior.  All of the fabrics are produced on quality fabrics in the UK.
