Cole & Son, the premium wallpaper manufacturer, is launching their new wallpaper collection, Frontier.
November 17th, 2010
’Frontier’ recreates an era of travel and discovery, in particular the culture, images and themes of the Far East.
All of the collection’s 12 designs have been sourced from Cole & Son’s archive, which dates back more than 300 years. Each design has been contemporised and re-coloured.
’Tropical Birds’ – these exotic birds are from an original 1950’s design by Una Lindsey. Printed in a range of colours from off white on a putty background to striking emerald green.
’Great Wave’ – a dramatic four colour design, unaltered from the 19th century in the Cole & Son archive. Rendered in black and white, bleached neutrals and washed-out blues.
’Cowcumber’ – originating in the 1950’s, this design has been simplified and re-coloured in earthy tones.
’Feather Fan’ – a soft Asian-inspired geometric pattern, enlarged from the original design. Printed in a selection of colours from the simple white on grey to a subtle lustre on a deep blue.
’Water Lily’- a bold contemporary design. Available in three colourways: white on white, gold on brown and off white and black.
’Geisha’ – an oriental landscape with a contemplative woman standing at the water’s edge. The warm colours can be interpreted as sunrise or sunset.
’Tile’ – an optical geometric design influenced by Northern African tiled courtyards creating a Moroccan-style sanctuary.
’Silk’- inspired by luxurious 19th century Indian fabrics, the design’s padded effect adds depth to any room. Available in five colourways.
’Gondola’ – evocative of a romantic Japanese journey, this oriental design is available in three vivid colours: charcoal and gold, deep purple and fuchsia, petrol blue and amber.
’Wisteria’ – a multicoloured rich design reminiscent of Urushi lacquer work. Available in four colourways.
’Cocoa’ – this life-size design of the Cocoa plant can be used for a breathtaking feature wall or incorporated with the ’Stipple’ paper, to decorate an entire room.
’Stipple’ – These textured plains are coloured to coordinate with the designs in the collection.
