Established in 1970 by Tricia Guild, Designers Guild designs and wholesales furnishing fabrics, wallcoverings, upholstery and bed and bath collections worldwide. The company is headed and owned by Tricia and her brother and their business philosophy is to combine creativity and innovation with the highest levels of quality: quality of design, product, service, and people.
This year the brand has launched Majolica, a stunning new collection of wallpapers and fabrics inspired by the intense hues of Majolica ceramics and just like the ceramics, this collection embodies is Italian tin-glazed pottery dating from the Renaissance period.
In this collection Guild used creative and bold colors, and spans from digitally printed contemporary florals and botanical studies to elegant geometric designs and marbleized textures. And it’s not all old-fashioned florals. Larger scale flowers appear like abstract contemporary marks creating a modern, graphic looking print with a very traditional inspiration.
The Majolica collection balances exquisite design with hardwearing practicality and versatility in mind so the customer can mix brights with neutrals in the summer house or as upholstery on simple garden furniture.
Guild thinks textures are really important, whether its fabric, wallpaper, paint, rugs or finished products, Guild is also a well-known and enthusiastic advocate for combining multiple prints in the one scheme. She doesn’t shy away from a large graphic print on a sofa being used alongside another floral printed cushion, one in a rich velvet, the other a soft linen, for example.
Now feel the summer vibe and get inspired, use the same elements and just change the colors, keep in mind color changes everything so be excited about that and play combining multiple prints in the one scheme.
