Teal Bird Wallpaper, Bee, Juneberry and Meadow Flowers Fabric

The colour teal has always been a timeless shade – especially the Teal Hummingbird wallpaper – this deep blue colour blended with an afterthought of green holds well for lampshades, cushions, fabric and the RSPB sofa. Subtle patterns and a repeated theme have made this one of the popular designs both as a wallpaper and as fabric. Other bestsellers include Juneberry and Bird wallpaper, Meadow floral Wallpaper/Fabric and Broom, plus the Bumble Bee wallpaper in a choice of 2 colour combinations. Shop the complete Teal Collection including the RSPB charity designs.

Upcycling Designer Wallpaper – Fabrics for Upholstering Chairs, Sofas and Furniture

Recycling old upholstered furniture and creative reuse of home furnishings such as dining chairs and chaise longues with modern, contemporary wallpaper designs has been a hot topic for the past few years and shows no signs of decline. It’s evident the environmentally friendly approach has been a boost for recycling old and unwanted furniture and reducing waste.

Upcycling with designer wallpaper and fabrics elevates a decade-old piece to a stylish, present day statement piece – is in high demand for heirlooms and family possessions or to sell as a unique one-of-a-kind creation. Contact Lorna here for Trade Enquiries or to apply as a stockist.
