One of the most beloved and iconic Cole & Son wallpapers has been reintroduced to reveal two brand new colourings.
Alongside the classic duck egg, soft blue and cream grounds, two additional renderings include jewel toned birds fluttering on a dramatic indigo blue ground and softer prettier birds on a delicate ivory. These new versions of Hummingbirds are produced on a non-woven base paper.
The soft Asian-inspired, geometric print of Feather Fan invites the eye wherever it is placed.
The subtle lustre of the Charcoal and Bronze colourway gives added depth to this delicate pointillist-like design, whilst Taupe, Ballet Slipper, Seafoam, and Old Olive provide a charmingly sophisticated art deco palette.
A smaller scale version of the mural Nuvole, Nuvolette, is one of the most enduring Fornasetti designs. The sky was long a recurring vision for Fornasetti and these ‘little clouds’ are delicately detailed etchings depicting tempestuous, rolling skies.
Available in other colours ways upon request. Other colours ways come as a 2 roll set. Please contact us for more details.
It’s no wonder that Silvan forests feature so heavily throughout literature and folklore; the sense of being wholly enveloped upon stepping into an array of trees and undergrowth as far and wide as the eye can see creating an awe-inspiring feeling.
Translated here in Forest’s large-scale, intricately hand-painted, fantastical trees, the dappled light traverses through far off branches as the dense ground cover emits the warm and welcoming woody fragrance of childhood memories.
Filled with characterful New World charm, the wondrous fabled ‘flying machines’ of Macchine Voltanti evoke childhood fantasy and adventure. Explore the outer limits of your imagination by getting lost in the enveloping skyscape filled with man, machine and ethereal creatures
Satara Camp in Kruger National Park is known for its Big Cats. It was here that a magical scene of a mother leopard and her cub climbing into a tree was witnessed. Sataracaptures the leopard's fiercely protective maternal instinct as she helps her cub to the next branch.
This peaceful design includes fans of leaves and curving trunks and vines, all richly ornamented with precise stripes and scallops. The leopards' fur has a more untamed pattern, in tawny orange, soft metallic gold and bronze, as well as a ghostly mica sheen, as if in a dreamscape.
Frutto Proibito gloriously combines different archival Fornasetti motifs from the 1940s and 50s. Mischievous monkeys, originally conceptualised as striking wooden panels for the Milanese patisserie, Dulciora, sit amongst sprawling pomegranate tree branches.
The playful composition of flora and fauna is quintessentially Fornasetti, mixing lifelike etchings with decadent, bold prints.
Designed in the late 1940s for the entrance hall of Piero Fornasetti’s own house in Milan, The Mediterranea wallpaper delivers a hypnotic cityscape of roofs, gilded domes and gardens with a repeating pattern that stimulates the optical effect.
In a daytime version with buildings defined in black and gold on white or nocturnal in black and humid ginger with gold domes.
Khulu, meaning ‘most important’, is particularly apt for this grand design featuring classical vases entwined with leopards, parrots, lions and other African animals. This fabulous watercoloured motif pays tribute to these modern day collectable vessels which can be found in galleries and private collections around the world.
Printed to an impressive 68.5cm repeat, the design is offered in various colourways including soft pinks and oranges on pale cream, a host of China blues on ivory, vivid greens and charcoal on ivory and finally a dramatic petrol and emerald on midnight blue.
Celebrated for its graceful, frilly flora, Sweet Pea is an enduring Cole & Son motif. With its deliciously scented, lush rambling vines, the Lathyrus odoratus is a favourite in gardens throughout the British Isles and beyond.
Updated in new, contemporary palettes of Cerise & Magenta on Viridian, and Ochre & Rose on Parchment, as well as traditional cottage garden tones of Autumnal Multi, Blush & Olive, and Mulberry and Sage on Cream, and Cerulean Sky & Sage on White this heritage design is surface printed to retain the thick, tactile print marks of each petal.
The Procuratie facades of St Mark’s Square in Venice provide a primates’ playground for these mischievous monkeys, wrapped around the classical arches and ornate balustrades. Drawn in a simple intaglio style, the timeless soft palettes of Stone and Powder Blue, and Soot and Snow enhance the intricate line work without detracting from the design’s stunning scene.
Taking its name from the peacock genus, Pavo Parade is an opulent host of metallic-toned peacocks. Their subtly ombréd trailing tails pay homage to a technique pioneered by Cole & Son, whilst the subtle framing of the design creates a panel-like effect emphasising the birds' grandeur.
Rich, lustred colourings of Metallic Silver on Denim; Metallic Bronze on Midnight; Metallic Gilver on Racing Car Green; Metallic Gold on Soot; as well as the arresting Metallic Petrol on Ink make this design a lavish interior option.
The Savuti is one of Africa’s most loved and well known national parks where hoopoes and hornbills call and sing whilst baboon monkeys and chameleons sun themselves in flowering Coral Trees.
This wonderful African garden has been recreated as a wallpaper in seven colourful and distinctive colourings each offering a different look - a bright orange and charcoal with a monotone engraved feel – a duck egg and old stone with a more faded and antique illustrative tones, and a series of three brightly coloured more child-like colourings on grounds of cream, dark petrol and khaki.
Flamingos remains one of Cole and Son’s most popular designs, with its charming repeat of nonchalant birds and subtle background foliage. Presented in four complementary colour palettes of Olive, Ballet Slipper, Lilac Grey, and sumptuous Ink and Alabaster Pink.
Inspired by the colourful and exuberant architecture of South Beach, Miami and the lush and tropical vegetation of the region, the Miami wallpaper depicts giddy layers of elegant tiled terraces, colonnades and pillars, interspersed with verdant palms and exotic flora.
Digitally printed, Miami is offered in two stunning colourings, the first made up of botanic greens, and limes, with accents of orange and teal, while the second presents a moodier twilight colouring of slates and greys with flashes of electric pink and golden yellow.
Originating as a silk scarf print from the 1940s, the ‘canes’ of Bastoni reflect the eclectic nature of the house of Fornasetti, brimming with umbrella and hat stands full of antique walking canes.
The graphic checkerboard style of the repeat is reminiscent of many Fornasetti favourites, resulting in a striking and bold motif. Bastoni is printed with a gravure four-colour process, to ensure all details remain sharp, with flecks of tonal metallic detail added in a luxurious gold.
Choose from three classic colourways of Cream, Racing Car Green, and Charcoal.
