Cole & Son - Off the Wall

Loyal to Tradition

Cole & Son offer a range of hand-printed wallpapers as wide as ice-cream flavours in an Italian gelateria. Actually, that sounds a bit limited. Since 1875, this English company, based in North London, continues to be loyal to the traditional processes pioneered by its founder, John Perry, and with an extraordinary archive of designs and original drawings and wallpapers from the 18th, 19th and early 20th century, there's plenty to draw inspiration from and come up with novel designs
For those with a more adventurous bent
For those with a more adventurous bent, there are some quite wild designs produced in collaboration with designers such as Vivienne Westwood. This design speaks to young Mrs Tweed, for some reason.
