Watts of Westminster Tableaux Scéniques rewrite the rules for historical wallcoverings.
Taking antique woven tapestries and hand painted papers, we use the most sophisticated digital photomosaic photography to gently transcribe centuries-old designs into exquisite, digitally printed panoramic textiles and papers, suitable for upholstery, drapery and wallcovering. Whilst prizing the venerable history of each design, our Studio Artists use cutting edge technology to tailor the artwork to your inspiration. Persuading rich, historical narratives to talk again, Watts of Westminster Tableaux Scéniques propel the subtleties of these age-worn designs into the 21st century.
Watts of Westminster Tableaux Scéniques are derived exclusively from original historic sources, many from antique tapestries. Through the generosity of great houses, museums and private collections we have a diverse and eclectic source of authentic tapestries and hand-painted papers. Watts are fortunate and proud to collaborate with the Cité Internationale de la Tapisserie, Aubusson, an orgnaisation providing artistic creativity, training and support to the tapestry sector, which still remains complete and preserved within the territory of Aubusson and South Creuse after six centuries of existence. Together we share a passion for the preservation and continuation of the age-old craftsmanship of tapestry weaving.
