Contemporary Selection Wallpaper Collection by Cole and Son

A bold collection featuring designs originally created in the 1950's by artists defining the exciting post-war period. Bright inspiring colours and the use of foils ensure Contemporary II is as 'cutting edge' today as the originals were in the 1950's and 60's.

Brand: Cole and Son

Cole & Son was founded in 1875 by John Perry, son of a Cambridgeshire merchant. In those days the company was situated in Islington, north London, an area famous for the 190 hand block printing companies working there in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Cole & Son block archive includes designs produced by J C Crace & Son to furnish many stately homes, palaces, castles and theatres throughout Britain and overseas, including the wallpaper designs of A W N Pugin for the Palace of Westminster. Today, the Cole & Son archive consists of approximately 1,800 block print designs, 350 screen print designs and a huge quantity of original drawings and wallpapers, representing all the styles from the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. Amongst these are some of the most important historic wallpaper designs in the world. Cole & Son has provided wallpapers for many historic houses including Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament. Our magnificent archive is on occasion the source of new designs within our collections. Designs are carefully selected, adapted and coloured by our designers and printed by craftsmen to produce wallpapers faithful to the character of the original document, yet contemporary in feel. Cole & Son continues to produce innovative and beautiful original designs; our current collections reflect our long and distinguished history as well as our continuing passion for new and exciting wallpapers.
