Alongside our usual ranges from the large design houses we are delighted to be able to offer something a little different from small independent design company Tradescant & Son with their exciting new Collection “The Curator”.
Inspired by the 17th Century Gardener, John Tradescant, whose collections of curiosities formed the basis of Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum, this is a collection like no other.
The designs were inspired by John Tradescant, the 16th and 17th century collector and gardener, and by the fashion for cabinets of curiosity in Europe at that time. Featuring exotic and British birds and insects, antlers, feathers and complementary stripes and plains, the collection will bring a twist of British eccentricity to your interior, and any item of furniture covered with a Tradescant & Son print is destined to be a conversation piece and an heirloom.
Printed in the main on 100% Linen, the fabrics ooze an organic feel that sits beautifully with the subject matter. With 19 designs in the collection and 75 colour variations, there is ample scope to use the collection in any design scheme. Add to this the fledgling wallpaper collection of 6 coordinating prints, this is truly an opportunity to add a distinctive look to your projects.
In addition to the standard designs, Tradescant & Son can also create beautiful bespoke fabrics with extremely low print runs and at excellent value. Whether you want the beautifully ethereal Drifting Feather on a sage green backcloth or the fascinating Entomology Beetle Drawer in tones of lilac, Tradescant & Son can explore the possibilities and create an individual product that will look and feel truly unique!

Our team of professional and talented Interior Designers will be on hand to help you with how to incorporate these fresh new designs into a stunning scheme for your home. All of the wallpaper and fabric designs from Tradescant & Son are printed here in England, and use 100% linen and British velvet – which we approve of whole heartedly!
