Think tradition and rule-breaking make awkward confidantes? Think again. At Watts, we dislike the idea of creative constraints, standardised rules or unbreakable historic conventions. That is why we excel at bespoke. Whilst many of our designs have illustrious pasts (and work faultlessly with a period restoration project), we truly believe this should not be an obstacle to experimentation, ingenuity and innovation. After all, creativity and originality are most definitely close companions of variety. Take the story of ‘Pear’ for instance. A flock wallpaper originally created in 1735 for the Queen’s drawing room at Hampton Court, redrawn by Bodley in 1885, and then re-coloured – ‘Pear’ might have been forgiven for thinking that it was secure in its identity as a rather richly adorned wall-hanging. Not so. Since its first incarnation, ‘Pear’ has also been scaled-up to gargantuan proportions, scaled-down, transformed into a linen textile, transformed into a shimmering silk, and even converted into a rug – enough to give it quite a personality complex one might think! Its next re-incarnation could be completely up to you…. With endless options for creativity and a dedicated and experienced design team able to work with you at every stage of a project, bespoke at Watts is an accessible and attainable choice. Indeed, the minimum order for nearly all wallpapers is only 12 rolls and in most circumstances the turnaround for a bespoke order is between six to eight weeks. Simply contact us with details of your project and your furnishing needs, and we can begin...

Bespoke

Wallpaper

We offer three different types of wallpaper; handblocked, surface printed and digitally printed. 
All of our designs can be custom coloured and re-scaled, and we are also able to originate any design.

HOW TO ORDER

Selecting and Colouring Your Design
All of our hand-blocked wallpaper designs can be found in a downloadable black and white PDF -
[http://watts1874.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Watts-Hand-Blocked-Wallpaper-Index.pdf]. 
Once you have selected a design, you can then select from one to seven colours, depending on which design has been selected. 
As the blocks are hand-coloured, we can use colour references from a wide variety of sources, including paint charts, other 
wall coverings and fabrics.

Ordering Trials
Trials of the hand-blocked and digital wallpapers cost £75 ex. VAT.

Minimum Order
The minimum order for hand-blocked wallpapers is 8 rolls, for stock wallpapers 1 roll, and for digital wallpapers 24 rolls.

Lead Time
Rolls are usually produced between 4 – 6 weeks.

Pricing
Given the wide variety of options, all orders are priced individually. A member of our design team will provide you with a 
quotation once you have selected your pattern and colour options.

Origination
Watts can originate a hand-blocked wallpaper based on any design. The process is the same as for a standard hand-blocked wallpaper, 
except that there is an extra charge for creating the artwork and cutting a new block. All projects will be individually priced.
