Their high standards mean that the fabric they use are the finest Egyptian cottons, Scottish linens and Swiss woven damasks whilst the wallpapers are printed using state of the art technology. Designers Guild are continually expanding their collections and are constantly introducing new products like rugs, towels and home fragrance. We are able to order not just the collections you see here but any of the fabrics, wallpapers and products that Designers Guild create.


Designers Guild latest collection Caprifoglio is an unsentimental floral collection, graceful and full of discovery. Hand-painted flowers are digitally printed to capture every stroke of the painter’s hand. Set against subtle frescos, the distressed plaster of a walled garden, or liberating open skies.  Fabrics are all on voluptuous velvets, crisp cottons and luxurious linens. Swirling contemporary silk jacquards, and glittering antique damasks enrich and complete the landscape of the collection.  Wallpaper is all on easy-hanging, durable, washable, non-woven grounds.


Shanghai Garden

A collection of graceful painterly landscapes and gardens printed on linens, cottons and heavyweight silk.  The collection is strongly influenced by classical Chinese landscape painting and calligraphy.  It epitomizes the extraordinary delicate and painterly evocation of mountain, rivers, trees and blossoms.  A stunning, modern collection that strives to create atmosphere.


A stunning collection of prints based on Indian and Central Asian ikats and brocade patterns in sublime colour combination.  Some of the designs are inspired by the classical geometries of the ikat motif while others offer elegant damask style repeating motifs.  Printed on fabulous fine cotton, linen and linen blends, the cloth is chosen or created to suit the demands of the design.


Inspired by the journey across the Silk Road from the Far East across ancient Persia to Europe, this collection from Designers Guild is sumptuous and glows with intensity. Rich, opulent emerald green, jade and teal, magenta and metallic combine with intricate, exotic patterns create a show-stopping selection of designs designed to draw heads. The collection is comprised of three fabric books, Astrakhan (prints and silks)Zambelli (heavy weaves and velvets) and Zetani (small weaves and silk taffeta), along with two wallpaper books, Savine (small scale prints) and Alexandria (damasks and flocks).


Bring a touch of the Orient into your home with the Kimono collection. This selection of printed cottons and linens give a fresh, modern feel. Designs feature pen and watercolours which have been reproduced with digital print. The combination of soft calligraphy lines and vibrant colours with touches of metallics result in a classic collection with a contemporary twist. Accompanying wallpaper book Kasuri features the same vibrant tones combined with small hints of metallic and a range of designs from subtle to dramatic.


Step into the 1920s with this beautiful collection; a combination of dramatic painterly florals and stripes in stunning muted chalky whites, dusky mauves and smoky blues. Designs draw upon the glamour of drawing rooms in London and New York in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Bright Young Things. The muted palette instills an opulent and grand yet contemporary feel. Lacy frescos and large blooms give a sense of timeless luxury and romance. The complementary wallpaper book Contarini reflects the feel of the fabrics with muted flocks, subtle metallics, understated lace and embossed textures.
