We’ve come to the end of the first month of 2023 and we are off to a flying start!
New collections were launched from Romo Fabrics, including a great go-to range of classic and modern stripes and checks with fabrics suitable for curtains and blinds as well as upholstery weight cloth too. Stripes and checks are a versatile addition to any interior scheme, whether as a coordinate to link a wider concept or as a key piece to offer a tailored smartness and an effortless feel to a space.
Towards the end of this month, we were given a sneak peek of the impending launch of the new William Morris Designs Collection by Clarke & Clarke Interiors – a company affiliated with the William Morris brand. They are launching a collection of five well-known classic Morris designs in early February 2023.
The new fabrics have been rescaled, recoloured and printed onto a cost-effective cloth which means that this collection can be purchased at around a third of the retail price of the classic William Morris brand fabrics – making it a great choice as we go into a difficult economic time, being obtainable for more budgets. The fabrics will be suitable for Roman blinds, Roller Blinds, Curtains, Cushions, Bed throws – the list goes on!
Throughout my design career, I have been a big fan of William Morris and relish any opportunity to specify his designs within my client briefs. With over 160 years of heritage going back to the Arts and Crafts Movement, it will be fantastic to be able to offer the fabrics at a more budget-friendly price.
