Colefax And Fowler

Colefax And Fowler holds a unique place in twentieth-century decorating history. Its heritage is the embodiment of John Fowler and Nancy Lancaster’s impeccable taste. Each new collection upholds the tradition of the brand, inspired by the historical palette and range of patterns, expanding on the company’s chintzes, woven fabrics, silks, sheers, trimmings, and wallpapers.


Colefax and Fowler epitomises the very best of English style, a style that is admired and emulated the world over. The essence of this look is a timeless elegance and subtlety, combined with an emphasis on perfect comfort, and an insistence on quality.

Fabrics, wallpapers and trimmings by Colefax and Fowler with their understated colours and sophisticated designs are the ideal choice for the relaxed and informal atmosphere that characterises the modern interior.

Recent collections include embroideries, velvets, silks, woven checks, floral prints, stripes, and plain linens. Complementing them are comprehensive ranges of wallpaper and trimmings.


Baptista is a beautiful elegant collection of wallpaper and fabrics in a contemporary colourway.  The fabrics feature some classic embroidered designs, stripes and geometric patterns; while the wallpaper colours are slightly more muted, the designs are both modern and timeless.


Lindon is a graceful collection of fabrics and wallpaper in a pleasing contemporary colourway.  Fabrics include beautiful embroidered botanical’s alongside printed trailing wisteria and large scale motifs.  The wallpaper is both luxurious and elegant, with designs such as stylized flowers and contemporary trellis.

The Celestine is a spectacular printed collection of floral, paisley and geometric designs in a wide range of attractive colour.  It brings character to any scheme, capturing the antique nature eroded in textures of a flamboyant statement.


The wallpapers in the Messina collection are beautiful with timeless appeal.  The prints range from classic patterns to delicate florals, some with touches of metallic.  A lovely collection with a colour-palette of soft pastel tones.


The Tennyson collection is lavish in style with attractive detailing and distinctive colourways picking up keynotes from throughout the collection.  The embroidery creates a distinctive decorative statement while the contrast between satin applique and linen ground embellished with embroidery is a refreshing take on the damask tradition.
