COLE & SON PRESENTS ‘FESTIVAL STRIPES’, A NEW COLLECTION OF CLASSIC AND CONTEMPORARY STRIPE DESIGNS
Leading wallpaper brand Cole & Son pays tribute to great British days out with the launch of Festival Stripes. The collection is inspired by the marquees, racing colours and blazers found at the most loved and quintessentially British festivals and will make its debut during Focus at Design Week in September 2012.
Working well in both contemporary and classic settings, the new collection sets the standard for sophisticated and distinguished interiors; offering a range of twelve designs and a total of fifty-six crisp and modern colour ways.
Cole & Son Managing Director, Simon Glendenning, comments “Our new designs are a simple yet elegant choice when looking to add excitement without creating boundaries. Festival Stripes explores new colour combinations which will liven up even the dullest of spaces.”

The collection includes the following:
Inspired by Cole & Son’s successful Carousel design, the Jubilee Stripe is offered in five separate colour ways, including soft greens, lilacs and French navies, in addition to three soft metallic colourings in warm bronzes, golds and coppers accentuated by silvers and tarnished pewters.
Namesake of one of the most famous horse races in the world, The Derby, this is an understated pinstripe on softly textured grounds of pearled ivory, grey, lavender and eau de nil.
An exuberant ‘tent’ stripe on pale ivory backgrounds, this motif is printed in five refined colourings of ivory, olive, lilac, cream, blue and an especially striking ultramarine.
This smart and well-proportioned university stripe is presented in six timeless colour ways, including a drawing room red on sand and a striking black and white. Some colour ways incorporate a hint of opulence with fine metallic edges. This chic wallpaper will enhance any room.
Named after the prominent cultural arts festival, the design is a reinterpretation of the classic Jaspe and comprises six new colour ways. Highlighting soft tones of olive, lilac, stone, sand and ivory, it portrays a dragged brush effect, reminiscent of Cole & Son’s early handmade papers.
A narrow, evenly spaced stripe printed on gently textured base paper. Available in soft neutral tones of dove grey, ivory, linen and charcoal, emphasized by bands of elegant metallic.
Another Cole & Son classic has been modified in six new colour schemes. A smart surface printed ‘four over’ stripe Pavilion is available in a range of soft metallics on chalky grounds of drawing room red, Chinese yellow, parchment white and inky blue.
A flamboyant new design named after the famed racing circuit in Wales. Featuring a multi-width stripe in a variety of colour duos, including soft camel and silver, classic nautical blue and white as well as a racier viridian green on charcoal. Colour ways inspired by the painted sides of classic cars.
A Cole & Son classic, this blazer stripe is now offered in six definitive colours, including drawing room reds, yellows and neutrals.
Inspired by the Monmouthshire landscapes in Wales and home to the Chepstow racecourse, this paper is a delicate yet sophisticated ‘all-over’ design, which features fine metallic threads in two tones over chalky grounds. Polished shades of gold, bronze, silver and pewter accompany earthy hues of stone, charcoal, olive and lilac.
