MY EDIT: Fabrics and Wallpapers from Design Week...

Following on from my lighting highlights, here’s my round-up of the fabrics and wallpapers that caught my eye amongst the many thousands on show at Chelsea Harbour during last month’s Design Week. They’re not necessarily new - I think it’s a shame that magazines are so often obliged to concentrate on new launches when there might actually be something that feels perfect for ‘now’ amongst a designer’s back catalogue... There were lots of key trends on show, and it felt like the showrooms are now much more in sync with what is happening elsewhere in interiors than they were a few years ago when they were more, shall we say... chintzy. 

KEY TRENDS: PATTERN
Trellis and chain links, rampant botanicals, geometrics, Moorish,  ethnic geometrics (including Africa and the Himalayas)

KEY TRENDS: COLOUR
The nearly-new neutrals: cream, grey, beige, greige, off-white etc.
Yellows, greens and chartreuse in between

KEY TRENDS: TEXTURE
Hopsack weaves, linens, cotton prints, woven grass,  crewel-work
