The

Design Studio

The Partnership’s Design Team have extensive experience of creating successful wallpaper collections in a broad spectrum of styles, ranging from classical damasks and traditional florals through to shabby chic and contemporary geometric designs.

We work exclusively with the world’s leading mills. Whether developing traditional papers with the oldest mill in the UK, or working with state-of-the-art European and US manufacturers, our designers have an in-depth knowledge of all production methods and technologies. This synergy ensures that we produce wallpapers of outstanding design, quality and reputation.

Our Brands

Based in Sussex, artist and designer Elizabeth Ockford works across an array of mediums and techniques to produce a distinctive style for her collections of contemporary wallpapers and fabrics. Drawing inspiration from florals, garden design, visiting historical sites and art exhibitions, she combines printmaking techniques such as intaglio press with artistic painting skills using water colour, oils, calligraphic inks and digital design processes to create her unique, distinctive designs.

Grandefiore brings together bygone techniques and artisan designs in a contemporary and relevant fashion, introducing a fresh style. It captures the romance and style of European waterways, the people and culture that surround them.

Smith & Fellows captures archival and historic designs that reflect the heritage, elegance and refinement of the past, to make innovative and elegant wallpapers. Only the finest materials are used, to create sophisticated designs that enhance both contemporary and classic interiors.

We are proud to present the Archives collections of wallpaper designs, created in collaboration with the University of Oxford. Oxford is the oldest University in the English-speaking world, with over eight centuries of history and tradition, and a global reputation for academic excellence.

Little Luxuries captures the very essence of the English countryside with feminine hand-drawn florals and co-ordinates. Delicate, yet contemporary, colour palettes are highlighted with shimmering micas and metallic effects, to create a modern vintage feel with an element of glamour.
