The Design Archives team, led by Sharon Crowson, had a very successful few days at Decorex 2017. Plenty of visitors from all over the world showed great interest in our  heritage fabrics. Showcasing Archive 1 and Spring Garden collections of fabrics inspired by the Design Archive, built up by Sharon’s father Derek Crowson.  The Archive consists of literally thousands of print and fabric samples, some dating from early 19th century. Sharon is working on creating a series of new collections bringing to life some of the archive’s most beautiful designs. Printed on quality base cloths, all fabrics are developed and produced in the UK.

Decorex is internationally known for being a major destination for interior designers to discover the  finest  luxury products from new, emerging and established talent. 2017 is the  second Decorex for The Design Archives, having launched it’s first collection Archive 1 at Decorex 2016.
