British Bird Wallpaper Designer Lorna Syson Visits London

It’s clear that Lorna doesn’t sit still, as we’ve bought this blog post up to date for this year, looking back at some other occasions we have chosen some of our favourites from years ago as a mini celebration of Lorna being in business for 10 years in 2020.

Back in 2013 Lorna wrote: I have been involved with the first Small Business Saturday in the UK on the 7th of December and as a celebration of the success of the project we were invited to Downing street. Here is me looking rather pleased with myself outside number 10.

A few months later Lorna was booked for a presentation at the Spring Fair on the 4th of February in 2014. Lorna spoke about her experiences selling online with her own eCommerce website.

Wallpaper and Fabric Designs Showcased at the Maison & Objet in Paris

Lorna has been flying to Paris for many years, you can see the collections that she showcased back in 2014. Later that year Lorna visited the Anstey Wallpaper factory in Loughborough. She loves working with British manufacturers to demonstrate what the UK can offer. Lorna went to visit them to talk about scaling up the wallpaper production as they do the most wonderful work, using a wide variety of wallpapering techniques, from the original William Morris wooden block printing to screen printing and Flexographic. The collections have grown from Bird Wallpaper to UK Meadow Wildflower Wallpaper.

Designer Lampshades – Commissions Made to Order

Wealden Times has photographed Interior Designer Phoebe Oldrey and her husband, Miles’ recently decorated house. The results are beautiful including a lovely photo of a specially commissioned lampshade by Lorna. The outside has manipulated fabric design and on the inside is the popular Juneberry & Bird print. If you are interested in owning a unique lampshade please contact me today.

Phoebe Oldrey and her husband Miles knew that they wanted to move out of London, but were adamant that, unlike many Londoners, they didn’t want to ‘escape to the country’. They wanted to live in a nice rural town, somewhere safe, with more growing space for their two young boys. They’d started looking around St Albans, but happened to come down for a short break in Pembury one weekend. “By the time we hit the Pantiles we’d decided that Tunbridge Wells was the place to be,” says Phoebe. “We had our house on the market by the following Monday.”

When asked about her styling tips, “There is usually a starting point. It can be a painting, like in my sitting room,” Phoebe says, indicating a striking piece by Emma Green above the fireplace.

Phoebe commissioned Lorna Syson to create the huge lampshades in the hall. They make a bold and playful statement – as you walk near them, you catch a glimpse of some painted blue tits perching on the inside of the shades. Read the article here.
