Match Making - Wallpaper and Furniture

Furniture and prints go together like a crisp white shirt and a tie. We love how furniture can define a space and prints make the space unique.

We've each chosen a favourite printmaker and paired them with a piece of furniture we love. Here are some match ups that express our personal taste. Staff Picks Dan - Cole and Son - UK have a distinguished history but continue to push the boundaries of contemporary style and collaborate with cutting edge designers. I'd love to see the contrast created by the clean lines of our Moller Dining Suite against a Cole and Son backdrop. Emma - As a graphic designer I gravitate towards intricate prints and bold, saturated colours. Borastapeter - Sweden express's adornment in a clean contemporary way. My favorite piece of furniture in store at the moment is our luscious new Adrian Pearsall Sofa. The clean shapes and grand scale of this piece would work well with a more intricate wallpaper design. Libby - Dan introduced me to the work of Marimekko and I couldn't stop looking at their gorgeous stuff! I love the bold, brash use of colour and the innocent, almost childlike prints. I think our France and Daverkosen would make a suprising yet fetching partner to a room papered in a print like this.
