About

The Collection

Anna Jeffreys’ collection of original fabrics and wallpapers has evolved to produce a wonderful statement of her love for both the classical, and more contemporary design and colour.

A love of colour reflects strongly in all her designs capturing not only a boldness and willingness to evolve, but also a deep respect for the more traditional heritage in which she grew up. This affinity for the pairing of traditional and contemporary styles, has evolved into a collection that brings together fruit, flower and leaf forms and combines them with clean lines and vibrant colour.

Anna’s collection is unique, personally designed and drawn in the studio at her home in rural Leicestershire, England. The designs are all printed in the UK on the highest quality linens and papers, allowing complete control of the detail and quality in the manufacturing process, and enabling a resilience to withstand the rigours of modern living.

The result is a exclusive and exciting collection, where Anna’s passion and personal touch shine through at every turn.

 

Anna Jeffreys

Throughout her career, initially as an interior designer, and now as a designer of fabrics and wallpapers, Anna has been inspired by her love of old buildings, and their repurpose for contemporary use, heavily influenced by her grandfather – an architect in her native South Africa; whilst her grandmother - a great gardener, inspired in her a love of plants and all their forms.

Anna’s experience affords her an insight into the importance of matching the aspirations of the client, to the practicalities and passion required to maintain a contemporary, relevant and vibrant collection.

Anna completed a 3 year course in Interior and Environmental Design at Chelsea School of Art earning a Dip.SIAD and Dip.AD, whilst concurrently continuing to develop her love of botanical drawing and painting.

Her success at Chelsea College of Art led on to her first role in the showroom of the legendary interior designer, Mrs Monro of Montpelier Street, London. It was here in the sample room, amongst all the colourful chintzes, wallpapers and trimmings, that she found the further inspiration and experience to support her developing career as an interior designer, and the encouragement to expand her technical abilities as a draftsman.

Anna’s 35 years of industry experience formed the foundation for her collection. She then decided to expand her passion for drawing, painting, lino cut and screen printing and designed her first range of wallpapers. Shortly afterwards, whilst fulfilling a wallpaper design commission in New York, she was asked to provide the matching design on linen, and so the linen collection, mirroring the wallpaper designs, was launched.

Born and raised in South Africa with a strong Irish and French heritage, Anna was further inspired by holidays in Tuscany and further afield; whilst working from her studio in her quintessentially English country garden. Anna’s designs, driven by both nature and nurture, bring the verdure of the botanical world and the influence of classical design into all her work.

All our fabrics are printed in the UK. Our linens are woven in batches and can result in there being a very slight colour variation, which can affect print colour. Prior to placing an order, we suggest you request a sample.

We recommend that our linens are dry cleaned.

 

Our Wallpaper

The wallpaper designs are printed on a matte, wipeable non-woven paper base.

To hang, apply unpasted to prepared/clean, ready pasted wall.

The wallpaper rolls are a standard British width, 10m by 52cm and are sold as single rolls.

Minimum order quantity is 3 rolls.

The linens and the wallpapers we print on are all sourced in the UK, and digitally printed in the UK. The process and all the materials involved are well researched and of the very best quality.

All the designs are available on either of the two linen base cloths, or on wallpaper.
