Design library

Bringing together traditional methods, an archive of historical designs, and a range of contemporary colours, our hand-blocked wallpapers are a sumptuous statement for any room. We use the original handmade pear wood blocks and rollers, rare and beautiful items in their own right, to produce our papers the traditional way. A range of designs with a variety of scales and styles, and the ability to produce rolls in any colour, give the potential to transform the distinctive into the truly unique.


c.1880 Originally a hand woven silk 17th century pattern depicted as the background to the Baptism of Louis XIV, one of a series of tapestries designed by Le Brun and woven by the Goblanc factories in the c1630. During the refurbishment of Ham House, London by Watts in 1890 Bodley copied the green damask in the Green Closet, a pattern that was then woven in red for the Duke’s Dressing Room (where it remains). The pattern was marketed by the firm as Dysart, after the Earl of Dysart who commissioned the work at Ham.
