Started by Arthur Sanderson in roughly 1870, the company has its background in beautiful wallcoverings. With it’s first factory opening in Chiswick.
Advancements in 1902 lead to an extension of the Chiswick factory, designed by Art and Crafts architect CFA Voysey. This extension still stands today and a Chiswick landmark. In 1924 Sanderson earned a Royal Warrant as Purveyors of Wallpaper.
It was not until the 1930’s that Sanderson embraced it’s floral ranges. This may come as a surprise since floral patters is something that is synonymous with Sanderson designs today. We love the brand because it is continually evolving, working with new collaborators and bringing exciting new fabrics and wallcoverings to the market.
Their quality is always outstanding and their understanding of production is just fantastic. One of their new collections the National Trust by Sanderson collection has stolen our hearts. Collaborating with the National Trust the collection is split up into categories from Inspired by nature, The secret garden, county house to the Fens and Under the Greenwood Tree. The collection is a smorgasbord of prints, plains, weaves and embroideries.
You are sure to find something to fall in love with. Their Melford stripe collection is such a staple in our collection and in our humble opinion will become one of their classics as time goes by. This weave collection is simple, understated, timeless. It is jam packed with hardworking beautiful plains, strips and herringbone fabric.
We love this collection so much it is finding its way into our own homes! If you would like to find out more about our Sanderson Fabrics and prints please feel free to drop us an email or visit us at our beautiful Wellingore Hall Studio.
