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.
‘The greatest mistake in the world is to believe that so-called good taste is any use without a sense of comfort to complete it.’
Words of Sibyl Colefax, (Lady Colefax Papers, Bodleian Library, Oxford)
‘A room must be essentially comfortable, not only to the body but the eye…well behaved but free from too many rules…mannered yet casual and unselfconscious.’
John Fowler, House and Garden Magazine, (May 1965)
