Launched at the London Interiors Show and new for Autumn/Winter 2019 from The Design Archives is SYMPHONY

A coloured weave designed to work alongside and complement our existing collection of vibrant and intricately patterned prints.

With a rainbow of colours to choose from, we are confident that this new addition will offer customers the perfect plain to mix and match for any scheme. See it now in our collection.
