From crisp linen blinds to sumptuous velvet curtains, the fabrics we choose to dress our windows are key to the character of our rooms, bringing interest, warmth and shade, and framing the view.

Above, Ilkley based interior designers Sturman and Co used roman blinds made from our Between Certainty and Oblivion linen by artist Joel Weaver to add depth to this beautiful crisp scheme in a converted Yorkshire barn.
In our own bedroom at home we have the slightly naughty 'Body Lace' voile curtains created with artist Sarah Jane Palmer.
This contemporary take on net curtains gives our room privacy whilst also disguising the ugly windows! The voiles allow a beautiful rose tinted light to filter through, adding a delicate softness to the room.
For a real statement, floor length curtains in heavy velvet add drama and provide the best heat and light insulation. Above is How the Leopard got his Spots velvet by Alexis Snell, and below,Rita does Jazz velvet created with Sarah Thornton.
Velvets can also be made into roman blinds. These use far less material and are perfect where space is at a premium, like the How the Leopard got his Spots blinds in in the home office of interior designers Fresh Start Living.
All our fabrics are made in the UK and are in stock. Samples are available to order through our website.
